Fruity Graham Cake Recipe
We all know that the Mango Graham Cake and Fruit Salad are both some of the quickest and easiest-to-follow dessert recipes out there. Well, this Fruity Graham Cake recipe isn’t any different. All of the ingredients we’ll need are available at your local grocery stores and markets. So, without further ado, let’s begin!
We will only need a total of five (5) ingredients. These are fruit cocktails, condensed milk, Nestle all-purpose cream, graham crackers, and graham powder. Take note, we only use Nestle All-Purpose Cream because it is made of high-quality ingredients and is trusted by millions of people all around the globe!
To begin, let’s first do the creamy sauce of our Fruity Graham Cake. Simply combine the Nestle All-Purpose Cream and Condensed Milk in one bowl. Make sure to mix it well until both the ingredients are fully combined with each other.
Next, pick up a square bowl that will be used as a mold for our delicious Fruity Graham Cake. It is better to use a square-shaped bowl because it’s easier to set up the layers of the cake. Now, layer the graham crackers first on the square bowl. Then, add the fruit cocktail on top of the Graham crackers. Next, pour the creamy sauce mixture that we made in the first step. Lastly, sprinkle a little bit of graham powder to add flavor and texture. Just repeat this process for the second and third layers.
For the top layer, we want our cake to stand out so top it with more fruit cocktails than the first layers. Then, pour all of the remaining creamy sauce mixtures that we made so the top layer will be the creamiest layer. Finally, sprinkle Graham powder on top!
Finally, refrigerate the cake for an hour. However, for better results, it’s recommended that you chill the Fruity Graham Cake overnight so the layers will be firm! And voila! That’s it, you’ve successfully made your version of the Fruity Graham Cake at home!
Easy, right? I bet you didn’t even break a sweat! You can be creative and add your preferred toppings for the Fruity Graham Cake, you can try adding peaches, mangoes, raisins, and even cheese if you like!
