Imagine two food favorites—graham crackers and whipped cream—in one wonderful cake. The results are heavenly!


  • 1-1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs, divided
  • 1 package white cake mix (regular size)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 4 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 pint heavy whipping cream or 1 carton (12 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed


  1. Set aside 2 tablespoons graham cracker crumbs. In a large bowl, beat the remaining crumbs, cake mix, sugar, water, egg whites and oil for 2 minutes.
  2. Pour into two greased and floured 9-in. layer pans. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand a few minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  3. Cut each cake horizontally into two layers. Place bottom layer on a serving plate. Spread whipped cream between layers and frost entire cake. Sprinkle reserved graham cracker crumbs on top. Refrigerate until serving time.
