Ingredients

  • graham crackers
  • lemon pudding mix
  • milk
  • heavy cream
  • powdered sugar

Graham Cracker Layer

I used an 8×10 size pan to create this lemon ice box cake. I put a layer of graham crackers on the bottom of the dish. You can break the graham crackers as needed to cover the bottom of the pan. I used a honey graham cracker, I think it goes best with the lemon flavor. If you made a different flavor icebox cake you could use cinnamon or chocolate graham crackers.

Lemon Layer

I use a large bowl and add the instant lemon pudding mix and milk as directed on the package. I used an electric mixer and mix as directed on the instant pudding box. Once you’re finished mixing, place the bowl in the refrigerator until you’re ready to assemble the cake. If you prefer a tarter dessert, you could use lemon curd instead.

Whip The Cream

In my standing mixer, with the whisk attachment, I pour in the cream and powdered sugar. I start the mixer on low and then increase it to high. Beat until stiff peaks form. If you prefer to make this easier, you can buy a large tub of cool whip and use that instead.

Assemble the Lemon Pudding Icebox Cake

You have your graham cracker layer on the bottom of the pan. Now add half of the lemon pudding mixture to the top of the graham cracker layer. I find an offset spatula or the back of a spoon works great to spread the pudding over the graham cracker. Use your fingers to hold the graham cracker in place as needed. Once you get this layer down the rest are easier to spread.

Next, add half of the whipped cream on top of the lemon layer. Spread to cover the surface.

Adding whip cream layer

Now it’s time for another layer of graham crackers. Cover the whipped cream layer with the graham crackers.

Scoop the remaining lemon mixture on top of the graham crackers and spread to cover the surface.

Then finish with the rest of the whipped cream. Spread to cover the lemon layer.

I topped the whipped cream with some crumbled graham crackers.

Then place the icebox cake in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight. After sitting your cake will have this light and fluffy texture that is perfect for a hot summer day. This is a great no bake dessert. You can serve it as is, or top it with fresh raspberries or strawberries.
