Graham Cracker Layer Cake

Ingredients

Makes two 8-inch round layers
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (from about 20 squares)
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup milk

Instructions

1 _ Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease two 8-inch round cake pans and line the bottoms with parchment.

2 _ In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, graham cracker crumbs, and baking powder and set aside.

3 _ In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy.

4 _ Add the eggs, one at a time, beating between each addition.

5 _ Mix in the vanilla.

6 _ Add the flour mixture and the milk a little bit at a time, alternating between each. Mix thoroughly but be careful not to overbeat.


7 _ Divide the batter evenly between your two prepared pans. Bake for about 25 minutes (or until golden brown and starting to pull away from the sides of the pans).

8 _ Cool in the pans for at least 15 minutes, then turn out onto a rack to cool completely before frosting and assembling.
