For many years now, the combination of mangoes and graham crackers really captured the taste of Filipinos. It started with the ref cake, then the mango graham shakes, floats, and so on. And today, we’re gonna make this iconic homemade snack once again!
Mango Graham Ref Cake Recipe
Alright, let’s do it! All of the ingredients that we’ll need to make the iconic Mango Graham Ref Cake Recipe can be easily bought from nearby grocery stores and local supermarkets! Also, the cooking procedures are very simple and easy to follow. So all you really have to do to keep calm and enjoy learning this famous recipe at home!
Before we begin, the ingredients that we’ll need for today are condensed milk, Nestlé all-purpose cream, evaporated milk, graham crackers, graham powder, vanilla essence, and of course mangoes! For our all-purpose cream, we’ll be using one of the most trusted brands in the world for the best results. With Nestlé’s almost 140 years of bringing high-quality products to our tables, it’s safe to assume that we’ll always be creating delicious dishes with their products.
Now that we have all the ingredients that we need, it’s time to make some delicious cake! Don’t worry, the entire preparation will probably only take less than 30 minutes to prepare. First, let’s make the sweet and creamy sauce. Simply combine the Nestlé all-purpose cream, condensed milk, evaporated milk, and vanilla essence in one clean mixing bowl. Make sure to mix all of the ingredients well to fully incorporate every flavor with each other.
After that, start layering the graham crackers in your preferred container. I suggest that you use a square bowl so that you’ll be able to arrange the layers easily. To do the layering, layout the graham crackers first, pour the cream mixture, sprinkle some graham powder, and top it off with sliced mango. Repeat this process over and over again until you fill-up the container, okay? Usually, it only takes about 2 or 3 layers to fill up a standard square container but if you want to make more, then go ahead!
To make our Mango Graham Ref Cake extra special, top the last layer with some mango puree and sliced mangoes to add some more flavors and design! Finally, refrigerate the cake for at least an hour but for best results, it’s recommended to refrigerate the cake overnight. And that’s it! Make sure that the layers of the cake are already intact and well-incorporated.
So, how’s your experience? Piece of cake, right? Even beginners won’t have a hard time making this quick and easy recipe! This yummy dessert is definitely loved by kids and can be served on any type of occasion like birthdays, reunions, and even casual dinners if you may. Just make sure to only serve the ref cake once all the layers are already firm and intact, alright?
