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 a neighbor who told me her great grandmother used to make it for all their family reunions and picnics. Who knew a cake made out of graham cracker crumbs would turn out to be so incredibly moist & delicious?
Preheat oven to 325F. Spray 9"x13" baking dish with nonstick cooking spray, or lightly grease with vegetable oil.
Place graham cracker squares into a large plastic bag, and using a rolling pin, crush crackers into crumbs. Mix graham crackers with flour and baking powder, set aside.
Cream sugar and butter until light and fluffy.
Add egg yolks, vanilla and cinnamon. Stir until smooth.
Add in about 1/3 of graham cracker mixture.
Add about 1/3 of the milk.
Continue alternating graham cracker mixture and milk until all is incorporated.
Stir in walnuts (or raisins, if desired).
Spread batter into baking dish; It should be thick.
Bake for about 20-25 minutes (until toothpick inserted comes out clean).
Allow cake to cool COMPLETELY, then begin making frosting.
Cream together the softened cream cheese and butter until smooth.
Add powdered sugar and mix til smooth. Spread evenly over cooled cake, then sprinkle some crushed graham crackers on top of the icing (optional).
Slice and serve. If you don't plan on serving it right away refrigerate it, the icing on this cake is delicate!
