My love for graham crackers probably stems from late-night chats I had with my dad growing up as we would dip graham crackers in milk. I will remember those nights forever! So making cakes with a delicious graham cracker cake layer in them always sends me to my happy place. 

If you’re craving a sweet treat with graham crackers in it, any one of these cakes will do the trick. I hope you enjoy making them and I already know you will enjoy eating them!

5 Cakes with a Delicious Graham Cracker Cake Layer

Graham Cracker Layer Cake #1: Graham Slam Cake

Of course, I had to include my Graham Slam Cake on this list! This is a really popular cake and there’s no secret as to why. This cake is filled with rich and creamy graham cracker butter that is swirled throughout the cake. Just think of this dessert as the cake version of the ice cream flavor, graham central station. This cake is the perfect celebration of your love for graham crackers. I know you’ll love this cake as soon as you take the first bite!

Graham Cracker Layer Cake #2: Creme Brûlée Cake

Usually, a traditional creme brûlée doesn’t have any kind of crust with it, but I’ve had one before with a graham cracker crust and it was heavenly! So I decided to add one to my dreamy Creme Brûlée Cake and, let me tell you, the flavor is unforgettable! My secret ingredient in this cake is instant coffee. The two flavors of coffee and vanilla bean paired together are out-of-this-world incredible! I use a coffee-flavored extract that works perfectly. (That way if you don’t drink coffee for religious reasons you can still add this ingredient to your cake, and believe me, you will want to!)

Graham Cracker Layer Cake #3: Coconut Key Lime Pie Cake

It took me a while to wrap my head around this cake before I actually made it, but when I did I was doing a happy dance in my kitchen! This Coconut Key Lime Pie Cake has moist cake layers, a subtly tart lime curd, silky smooth buttercream, and a graham cracker crust and toasted coconut that accent this cake perfectly! I didn’t expect to love this cake when I made it, but you guys I could not stop eating it! This is a winner for sure. 

Graham Cracker Layer Cake #4: Disneyland Inspired Peanut Butter Graham Cake

My Peanut Butter Graham Cake is inspired by the Disneyland treat the Peanut Butter Sandwich you can get at Pooh’s Corner and the Main Street Bakery. This treat is filled with everything I love in life! So of course I immediately started brainstorming how to turn it into a cake. I had a lot of fun creating this cake, especially mimicking the chocolate shell for the outside of the cake! I include a tutorial video on how to do it on the original blog post, so be sure to check that out when you make this one.

Graham Cracker Layer Cake #5: Seven Layer Bar Cake

Have you had the famous seven-layer bar dessert before? It’s one of my favorites, so I turned it into a cake for one of my birthdays! My Seven Layer Bar Cake is quite the treat. There are a lot of different elements to it, so if you’re planning on making this one I recommend spacing it out over a couple of days so you’re not trying to make it all at once. Be sure to check out the original blog post I linked to see my tips on getting the best results for this cake.
