Leaving aside the one hour refrigeration time, this dessert dish is extremely easy to put together. And extremely delicious! Start by caramelizing the sugar and mixing it with heavy cream and butter in the process. Add this over a buttery-crunchy base made with salted crackers.

Ingredients Needed for No-Bake Caramel Cake

For the caramelized sugar:

1 cup sugar
2 ounces of butter
½ cup heavy cream

For the cake:

5 ounces of crackers
1 ounce melted butter
ice cream, optionally (for serving)
melted chocolate, optionally (for garnishing)

How to Cook No-Bake Caramel Cake

  1. For the caramelized sugar:

    Add the sugar in a skillet over low heat and start caramelizing it. As it starts melting, add the butter, then add the heavy cream.

  2. Simmer for 5 minutes. Set aside.
  3. For the cake:

    Crush 3 ounces of your crackers and add them to a ball. Add the melted butter and mix them.

  4. Transfer the crushed cracker mixture to a 7 x 2 inch (17 x 5 cm) cake pan. Evenly spread it and press it gently. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  5. Remove the cake pan from fridge and layer the remaining whole crackers over the base layer. Arrange them so they partially overlap each other.
  6. Pour the caramelized sugar mixture on top. Refrigerate for another 30 minutes before serving.
  7. Optionally, serve it with some 1 scoop of ice cream and garnished with melted chocolate.
