No-Bake Layered Cake

Need a simple recipe without turning on the oven? Try this no-bake layered cake with vanilla pudding, and graham crackers topped with melted chocolate.

This recipe was inspired by two of my desserts: the No-Bake Chocolate Spartak (by the way if you haven’t yet tried this recipe you are truly missing out) and Vanilla Wafers Dessert. I love to bake, but I must admit, some days I don’t feel like spending hours in the kitchen slaving over a cake. A good book or time with my hubs or children sounds so much better, am I right or what?! Or even if you get a last minute call to a party or event and just don’t have the time to bake a cake, this no-bake layered cake will be a great option.

So, I have come to love these no-bake desserts because they are still delicious, but they are so easy to make and taste just as good. I love the taste of the vanilla pudding with the graham crackers the combination is amazing. Your children will love this dessert, promise. Because there is milk in the cream, the crackers soften quicker than most recipes. This is a cake that can be made and ready to enjoy in just two hours, it doesn’t need a long time for the layers to soften.

{You can also top the cake with fruit instead of chocolate, (see image below.) I have done this desert recipe with fruits such as, strawberries, raspberries and blackberries, or even a combination of several fruits.}

Tip: To cut straight pieces, run knife under really warm water without drying the knife, then cut the cake. Rinse knife after each cut. 🙂

This is a great dessert to have after a quick lunch or dinner such as Chicken Spinach Mushroom Flatbread or the Cauliflower Corn Cucumber Salad.

Note:* If you don’t like cool whip, it can be substituted for 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream. Beat whipping cream according to carton instructions. If you want a sweeter cream, add 1/4 cup powdered sugar.

  • 1 (14.4 oz) box Graham crackers
  • 1 (5.1 oz) package Jell-O Instant Vanilla Pudding
  • 1 3/4 cups cold milk
  • 4 oz cream cheese, room temp
  • 1 (8 oz) cool whip, or heavy whipping cream, see note*,
  • 1/2 cup chopped milk chocolate
  • 3 Tbsp heavy whipping cream

  1. How to make the cream-
  2. In a bowl, whisk together milk and instant pudding until it starts to thicken, about 1 min.
  3. In a different bowl, with a mixer, beat cream cheese until creamy. Add cream cheese to the pudding, mix just until cream cheese in incorporated. Add the cool whip, beat again. Refrigerate until ready to assemble cake.
  4. How to make the chocolate ganache-
  5. Over a double broiler, bring water to a boil. Add heavy whipping cream and milk chocolate to a bowl. Keep mixing until the chocolate begins to melt. Remove from heat and continue mixing until there are no chunks of chocolate. Set aside to cool.
  6. How to assemble the cake-
  7. Spread a small amount of cream over the platter you will be using.
  8. Add four graham crackers in a row. Cover generously with cream. Continue until you have six layers.
  9. Cover top and sides of cake with remaining cream.
  10. Take the leftover graham crackers (there should be 3), put them in a Ziploc bag and crush finely with a rolling pin.
  11. Coat sides and top with the graham crackers. Tip: The crushed crackers that fall on the sides, put them back up with a knife. Easier then with your fingers:)..)

Your choice of fruit may be used at topping instead of chocolate if desired :)..

Note:* If you don't like cool whip, it can be substituted for 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream. Beat whipping cream according to carton instructions. If you want a sweeter cream, add 1/4 cup powdered sugar.
