Graham Cracker Cake

Graham Cracker Cake

This big, rustic whole-meal cake is perfect with morning tea or milky coffee.

Sprinkle turbinado sugar and sea salt on top for a crunchy sweet-salty taste. We used a combination of Biscoff cookie crumbs and graham cracker crumbs, which made the cake extra yummy, but you can use all graham cracker crumbs. Serve with lemon sorbet, ice cream or frozen yogurt. (Go to for a lemon frozen yogurt recipe.)
