Bachelor Layer Cake

This is hands down my favorite cake EVER! My Grandma Jeanette and my Mom have both been making it since I was little and whenever it's around I can never get enough! It's creamy and delicious... honestly it's hard to stop eating it.

6 Eggs well beaten
2 Cups white sugar
6 Tbsp. hot strong coffee
2 Tsp. vanilla
6 Tbsp. cocoa powder
2 Cups shortening (softened)
Large box of graham cracker cookies

Beat all the ingredients (aside from the graham cookies) until smooth and well combined.

Lay graham crackers on the bottom of a 9 x 9 inch baking pan so that they completely cover the bottom (you may have to break some of the end crackers to fit). 1/3 of the cake mixer over top. Top that with another layer of graham crackers just the same as you did on the bottom. Top that with another 1/3 of the cake mixture, top that with one more layer of graham crackers and the remaining 1/3 of the cake mixture.

Crumble graham cookies over the top.

Refridgerate for TWO days.. that is the hardest part!! But the anticipation will make it that much better! I promise! :)



  1. OH man!! This looks awesome!!! Does the coffee flavor overpower the chocolate(cocoa) though?

  2. Not at all, the coffee flavor is really subtle... just adds a nice little undertone. Trust me, you'll love this!

  3. I can't wait to try it - Yum
