I'm still sorting through old cookbooks and recipes and came across these, which I made so many years ago and am not sure how they fell off the radar, as both are very scrumptious.
The following recipe is for a very moist, dense coffee cake. Made with graham crackers, it has a very unique and delicate flavor. Great for morning coffee break!
GRAHAM CRACKER COFFEE CAKE
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp. backing powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1-1/2 cups craham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cupt light brown sugar
3 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. vanille
1 cup butter milk
1 cup chopped walnuts
Sift together flour, baking powder, soda and salt; mix with graham cracker crumbs; set aside. Cream together putter and sugars. Beat in eggs one at a time and then add vanilla, beating until fluffy. Add flour mixture to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk, beating just to blend. Stir in walnuts and spread into greasted 9-inch square baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until top springs back. Dust with powdered sugar and serve warm with butter.
And here's a recipe shared by a coworker many years back for a treat called Ice Cream Candy Bars.
BOTTOM CRUST: about 25 crushed oreo cookies and 1 stick melted butter ... press into bottom of 13x9 pan.
Layer #2: 1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream. Let soften then slice and spread into pan
Layer #3: 1 can spanish peanuts
Layer #4: Melt 1 stick butter, 1/2 cup chocolate chips, 1/2 can evaporated milk (more or less), and 3 cups powdered sugar. Bring to boil until it thickens (similar to a white sauce consistency). Let cool completely and spread over other layers. FREEZE until firm. To serve, let stand for about 1/2 hour for ease in slicing.
