My Grandma's Graham Cracker Cake
Grandma Vicky's Famous Graham Cracker Cake
This recipe is my grandmother's famous Graham Cracker Cake. Another one of my family's favorites. This particular cake is my father's all time favorite of his mothers' recipes. It's perfect for children to me because its not too sweet. That's one of the many reasons my father enjoyed it so much. I hope you will too.
My grandmother no longer bakes anymore due to her age and illnesses but her recipes will go on in my family's kitchen and now maybe yours. I hope you guys really enjoy this one.
