I love the original Honey Cake, but the time needed to make it is the time that I don’t have! I just had to make an easier no-bake version of the cake. So, I went about to make a No-Bake Honey Cake. Without the use of my oven, rolling-pin, or the hours of time. How did I accomplish such a thing, you ask? Graham Crackers.
This might not be such a novel idea, but it works and works great! I used Honey Graham Crackers for cake layers. They absorb the moisture from the cream and become tenderly soft. So if you got some stacking skills, you’ll do great!
