Peach Refrigerator Cake

I personally love cakes! I won't say all kinds of cake, but most kinds of cake. Beautifully frosted and decorated  cakes always mesmerize me. They're like stunning works of art for me. But back when I was a little girl, there's this cake that I really like. It's not fancy...it's not tall...it doesn't even have frosting...but my birthdays wouldn't be complete without it even if I have a beautiful store bought cake.

I'm talking about the famous Refrigerator Cake.Before my mom got her wonder oven (which she used to bake her delicious cakes), refrigerator cake was the only cake she could make. She used to make it with broas (ladyfingers) with mango topping. My birthdays won't be complete without it and a store bought chocolate or chiffon cake with butter cream icing.

When I was in college, I started making ref cake on my own and I found out that honey graham crackers work better on it. So that's what I've been using since then. I've tried different toppings aside from mango like canned peaches, fruit cocktail, sweetened strawberries and coarsely chopped Oreo but I liked mango and canned peaches the best. The only drawback with mango is that the taste changes after a couple of days, so I used canned peaches more often. 

Today, let me share with you my Peach Refrigerator Cake...
It is such a delicious and easy dessert. It only requires a few ingredients, and it doesn't even involve turning on the oven. What more could you ask for???!


Ingredients:
*Makes 9.5" round 4-layer ref cake
  • 18 pcs. honey graham crackers
  • 2 -7.6 oz. cans Nestle Table Cream
  • 1 -14 oz. can condensed milk
  • 1 envelope Knox unflavored gelatin
  • 1 medium can sliced Peach (reserve the syrup for the gelatin, dilute in water to make 1 cup)
  • raisins

Procedure:
1. In a bowl, mix  table cream & condensed milk thoroughly.
2. Spread about 6 Tbsp of the mixture on a 9.5" round dish, arrange a layer of graham crackers on top of it (you might want to crumb the graham crackers to fill uneven spaces), then make another layer of the cream & condensed milk mixture, then another layer of graham crackers and so on until you have made 4 layers of each, the cream and milk mixture being the top layer. Arrange the peach & raisins however you want it. Put in freezer for about 15-20 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, cook the gelatin according to package directions. Allow to cool down and then using a spoon, gently pour over on top of the cake until fully covered.

4. Chill for at least 3 hours before serving. Best if chilled overnight. Slice and serve.

  6. I don't love cakes but can't stop admiring all the lovely cakes others make. You know I don't fancy anything sweet and its a small bite treat for me. I do salute people like you who can come out with such gorgeous cake and actually given a choice, I will for the mangoes.

    How nice you have shared a cake that does not need baking and simple to follow. I need more of these type of cake recipes because I freak out with the ones which are elaborate and takes really skills to bake.

    Nice deco and lovely contrast of colors.

    1. Hi! As I mentioned in the ingredients list, the peach syrup is for making the gelatin. Sorry for not elaborating it in step 3 where I only said "cook the gelatin according to package directions". If you are using Knox gelatine, here's how you'll do it: 1.Heat up 1/2 cup of the peach syrup in the microwave for a minute. 2.Sprinkle gelatin over the other 1/2 cup of the peach syrup and let stand in 1 minute. 3.Add hot peach syrup and stir until gelatin completely dissolves.
