Graham Cracker Fluff

Have you ever heard of graham cracker fluff? Have you ever tasted graham cracker fluff? Well if you answered no to both of those questions you are missing out.

My mom tells me it's an old fashioned dessert. It's creamy but not too sweet. It's fluffy, of course, (hence the name) with a lovely gelatinous texture. Then you have the crunch of the graham cracker crumbs to add the finishing touch.

This was a recipe I tweaked after many tries. I upped the gelatin and I like when the eggs are separated and the egg whites whipped.

Graham Cracker Fluff

Serves 8-10

3 cups milk

3 egg yolks (save egg whites for later)

1/2 cup sugar

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 packages of unflavored gelatin (or 2 tablespoons)

dissolved in 1/4 cup cold water

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups heavy whipping cream

3 egg whites


18 graham crackers, crushed

2 tablespoons sugar

1/4 cup butter, melted

In a medium saucepan add milk, egg yolks, sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Whisk until smooth. On low-medium heat slowly heat milk and bring to boiling point. Do not boil or the mixture may curdle.

Remove from heat and add dissolved gelatin and vanilla. Stir until smooth. Cool until room temperature.

In a bowl whip whipping cream until stiff peaks form.

In another bowl whip egg whites until stiff peaks form.

In a large bowl pour in cooled custard mixture. Fold in whipping cream and then the egg whites. Stir until smooth.

In a small bowl combine crushed graham crackers, sugar, and melted butter. Whew, that’s a lot of bowls. It’s worth all the bowl washing, I promise.

In a clear glass serving bowl add a layer of graham cracker crumbs, pour a 2-3” layer of custard and top

with more crumbs; repeat these layers two more times or until everything is used up.

Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 6 hours or overnight.

This recipe looks delicious! My custard was looking great until I added the egg whites and it split. Any ideas of what I did wrong?
