Test Kitchen: Icebox Cake /Research
Sunday, March 16, 2008
So a friend of mine loves icebox cake and requested it for dessert at my next dinner party. What he described to me doesn't sound like cake, but I think I can figure it out, but clearly, Googling it first is a must.

Smitten Kitchen has a version that involved chocolate wafer cookies (apparently Nabisco does the original) and whipped cream here, but the one my friend described definitely had pudding. I remember Nilla wafers had a pie version with bananas (I think he said bananas were in his version) and vanilla pudding. I found something interesting sounding--this eclair icebox cake at, but I don't want to use instant pudding--not for a dinner party! I remember Dorie Greenspan talking about making your own pudding, so I think I'll swank it up that way. Plus a quick text just confirmed that the version my friend's craving has bananas in it. And chocolate. There's a recipe for chocolate pudding in that Dorie post...

Another text came in and a consult with the boyfriend and I think it's going to be layers of graham cracker, homemade vanilla and chocolate puddings, plus sliced bananas. Probably whipped cream, too, because I have heavy cream from the farmer's market, too. Mmmm...and honey...

Photos...I promise!
