grahamGRAHAM CRACKER & BANANA CAKE and EASY SANDWICH COOKIES

This is a terrifically easy no bake recipe that you can expand infinitely depending on the size of the crowd. Each cake serves about 6. Kids love this recipe. It is extremely popular for VBS. However; at VBS we make tiny versions 1/2 a graham cracker on the bottom and so forth. Super fun and easy for the kids to help you make. We have also used melting chocolate instead of the frosting and made tiny cookies.

Ingredients:

1 stack Graham Crackers (1/4 box)
bananas, sliced 1/4″ thickasfor

Buttercream Frosting
1 lb Powdered Sugar
1 stick Butter (softened)
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 cp milk

Directions:

Place two¬†graham crackers on a plate. Cover with a layer of banana slices. Repeat until you’ve used up the crackers (ending with a cracker on top).

In a mixing bowl, beat sugar, butter, milk and vanilla till smooth and fluffy. Frost cake.

Let this cake sit a few hours before serving so the crackers soften. Mom always sliced this cake. I prefer to cut it in quarters so everyone gets big pieces and plenty of frosting!

cookieWhat to do with left over frosting?
Mix in some peanut butter and/or cocoa. Apply to a graham cracker in a thick layer. Top with another graham cracker. Duplicate this process until you’ve run out of frosting. call the kids. Serve with milk.
