Graham Cracker Pound Cake Recipe

This Graham Cracker Pound Cake recipe is a wonderful new addition to your standard pound cake repertoire.  Graham Cracker Pound cake is very easy to make- all you need is a normal loaf sized pan (similar to the kind used for other pound cakes), and all the ingredients.  You can even mix it by hand if you want- it’s so easy!

Graham crackers are one of my favorite types of crackers, especially with milk- but sometimes if you have purchased too many then you need to find a reason to use them all! This is the perfect cake to make!
