Baker's Tips

  • I use my USA Pan 1-pound Loaf Pan for this recipe. I would recommend using a loaf pan with straight sides versus one with rounded corners.
  • I use parchment paper and fold it over the sides of the loaf pan, so when this cake is ready to come out, I can just lift the parchment paper sides up and it removes the cake very easily.
  • Make sure to make the Homemade Caramel Sauce ahead of time so it has time to cool before assembling the cake. If you’re feeling lazy, King’s Cupboard makes a good Organic Caramel Sauce you can easily buy.
  • I make the whipped cream in my stand mixer, but you can also do this in a hand mixer. Whichever way you prefer is totally fine!
  • Make sure to store extra cake in an airtight container in the fridge. You can also store in the freezer to make it last longer.

FAQ's

Can I use another kind of fruit?

Yes! If you want to use apples or peaches, these would also be great in this icebox cake and they both would go really well with caramel!

How do you sore icebox cakes?

Icebox cakes are best kept in the fridge for a few days after making. But, if you want to store them longer, you can do so in the fridge. I recommend wrapping the cake (or each slice) in plastic wrap and then storing in the freezer.

Can I freeze this?

Absolutely! I like to wrap each slice in plastic wrap and then freeze to ensure it's safe and doesn't get freezer burn.

    Can I make this in a springform pan?.
    .and substitute cool whip for the whipped cream?

    • mimibakescookies says:

      Hi! You can use cool whip for whipped cream. You can also make it in a springform pan as well, if it’s round it just may be difficult to get the Graham crackers to line up exactly with the sides, which would then make more whipped cream fill in ☺️
