Old Fashioned Graham Cracker Cake Recipe

If you love making cakes that are simple to prepare but yet taste awesome, you will love this recipe, it was given to me by my 83 year old great aunt who used to make it for all of our family reunions and picnics. It uses ingredients you most likely have on hand. My family really enjoys this cake recipe because its different and tastes awesome. If you have a large enough rectangular cake pan, you can indeed make it in one pan instead of the 2 rounds called for in the recipe. I like to top mine with either vanilla or cream cheese frosting.

Graham Cracker Cake

3 c. graham cracker crumbs
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
3 eggs, separated
1 1/2 c. milk
3/4 c. shortening
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Heat oven to 350°. Grease and flour two 9? round cake pans. Break 8 graham crackers into blender container, cover and process to grind. Empty contents into mixing bowl and repeat with remaining graham crackers, add baking powder and salt. Put egg yolks, milk, shortening, sugar and vanilla into blender container, cover and process until smooth. Add to cracker crumbs and mix well. Beat egg whites with mixer until stiff. Fold into cracker mixture. Pour into prepared pans and bake 30-35 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes in the pan, then finish cooling on a wire rack. After it has been cooled, you can ice it with your favorite icing. To dress up your cake, you can use an icing tool to make swirls or a patterned design in the icing. You can also top the cake with some fresh sliced fruits.
