Let me share with you a fool-proof recipe of a sumptuous refrigerated cake as shared to me by a colleague who was taught by her sister. Honestly, I never thought a no-bake cake especially this one could taste this good. After eating a rather big piece of this yummy refrigerated cake though, I am immediately transformed. I will never look at no-bake cake the same way again. Try this and you too, might find it a welcome alternative to baking when time is not at your disposal. :-)
Unlike the banana cake and chocolate cake I posted before, this recipe calls for just a few ingredients. This includes about 7 small packs of Graham Honey Flavored Crackers, 2 cans Nestle Cream or All-Purpose Cream, 1 cup Condensed Milk and 1 medium can Fruit Cocktail. The fruit cocktail made in the Philippines works very well for this cake but since that specific brand is quite hard to find here, an inferior local fruit cocktail is my only option. :-(
In a deep mixing bowl, combine the Nestle cream or all-purpose cream and the condensed milk. Stir vigorously using fork to properly blend the two ingredients and a smooth homogenous mixture is attained.
In a rectangular glass dish or plastic container, pour ¼ of the cream-milk mixture and spread evenly at the bottom. Arrange a layer of Graham crackers. Pour ¼ of the cream-milk mixture again to cover the crackers. Drain the fruit cocktail, slice to small sizes and evenly distribute 1/3 of the quantity on top.
Arrange another layer of crackers on top of the fruits. Cover with ¼ of the cream-milk mixture followed by 1/3 of the fruits. Repeat the process until all ingredients have been used.
Cover and put inside the freezer for about 3 minutes. We don’t want to call this a frozen cake so transfer it inside the refrigerator and chill for several hours or overnight. Only if you can wait. We can’t, so ours was sliced up and gulped down just after more than an hour. :-)
