S'more Cake

  • 7

I'm thinking about making a cake with graham crackers as layers (or making meringue layers with graham crumbs mixed in) and layering with whipped ganache or chocolate buttercream and covering all with boiled icing - and torching - does this cake exist already? Any comments?

  1. This old standby (a favorite at church potluck dinners), Chocolate Eclair Cake has similar components...


      1. I make a similar recipe, which I think came from Good Housekeeping originally. I personally find the s'more brownies too sweet for my taste, but I make them all the time for bake sales and concession stands at school events for my kids, and they sell out every time. People come looking for them.

        1. epicurious has a smore's ice cream cake that I have made many times to rave reviews-- graham cracker crust in a springform pan, layers of ice cream and ganache/fudge topped with marshmallow creme and mini marshmallows that you can broil or torch. Yum! I think the recipe calls for coffee ice cream but I have done it with mint chip and chocolate, too.

            1. One cautionary note based on my experience with a s'mores pie. My pie kept catching on fire under the broiler. The marshmallows just kept incinerating almost instantaneously. I don't think other people who commented on the pie had that problem. And some people talked about using a mini blow torch rather than the broiler which would give you more control.

              But I just mention it so you know to keep a close eye on things under the broiler cuz I don't think it takes too much to go from nicely browned to on fire.

              Have fun!

              1. One of my baking buddies made s'mores cupcakes this summer. Am sure you can convert to a cake instead. They look so pretty as cupcakes, tho'!
