No-Bake Choco-Banana-Graham Cake Recipe

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups milk chocolate chopped
  • 5 large egg yolks
  • Salt
  • 3 cups heavy cream/ all-purpose cream
  • 20 graham cracker sheets
  • 4 or 5 ripe bananas very thinly sliced lengthwise
  • Garnish: whipped cream

Instructions
 

  • Line a 5-by-10-inch loaf pan with plastic wrap. Place chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Place yolks and a pinch of salt in another heatproof bowl.
  • Bring cream to a simmer in a medium saucepan. Slowly pour cream into bowl with yolks, whisking constantly; return mixture to saucepan set over low heat.
  • Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon, about 8 minutes (mixture should not come to a boil).
  • Immediately strain through a fine sieve set over chocolate; stir until chocolate melts and is smooth.
  • Refrigerate, stirring occasionally, until thick, about 4 hours.
  • Spread 1 cup chocolate mixture evenly into bottom of loaf pan. Top with a layer of 4 graham crackers, trimmed to fit. Spread 1/2 cup chocolate over tops, and cover with some bananas. Spread 1/2 cup chocolate over bananas, and top with a layer of 4 trimmed graham crackers.
  • Repeat with remaining chocolate, bananas, and graham crackers until you reach the top of the pan; finish with graham crackers.
  • Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight. Uncover, and turn out onto a serving platter. Remove plastic wrap. Garnish with whipped cream, and cut into slices.
