Refrigerator cakes are layered desserts that don't require an oven nor complicated ingredients. These homemade creamy concoctions are some of the best no-bake desserts that you can make. You can level up an ordinary refrigerator cake just by mixing and matching up ingredients that you love to eat in other desserts.
If you have all-purpose cream, some crackers, biscuits, or cookies, and your fruits, or favorite flavoring on hand, these easy no-bake desserts can be made at home.
These easy dessert recipes are loaded with different flavors! Do you love coffee? Are the flavors in a black forest cake, the cherry and chocolate combination, your weakness? Does a mango dessert make you giddy with excitement? If any of these ideas make you happy and eager to take a bite of whatever these desserts are, you'll be equally delighted that there are no-bake dessert recipes that you can make at home.
Any of these ice-cold dessert ideas might just become your new favorite dessert:
Fruit Salad Refrigerator Cake
If you love gelatin, fruit salad, egg cookies, and ice cream, you'll love that this frozen refrigerator cake makes use of all of these dessert ideas into one cake. You'll need to do some cooking but nothing you can't handle! The fun part of this is creating a design on top of your cake since the round cookies are the first thing you will see when you present this on the table.
You can even make this even simpler with just a quick mix of cream and fruit cocktail mix just so you can eat the dessert quicker.
Kahlua Icebox Cake
Coffee fans will love this easy coffee-flavored refrigerator cake. Kahlua is a coffee liquor that is available in the alcoholic section of your major supermarket shelves. It's a fantastic ingredient for desserts because it's a great substitute for vanilla extract when you want a coffee flavor instead of the plain vanilla one.
Not everyone has this ingredient stocked in their kitchen and there's a great substitute even for this that you can make at home. If you have instant coffee granules, just make a strong amount of coffee and use that instead of the Kahlua.
Frozen Blueberry Refrigerator Cake
If you love blueberry cheesecake, this dessert is for you. Fruit pie filling that is the central flavor of this easy refrigerator cake. You don't need fresh blueberries and can instead just use the blueberry pie filling you can find on supermarket shelves but if you can get your hands on the fresh berries, you just leveled up an ordinary no-bake recipe into a slice of heaven.
Black Forest Ice Box Cake
The combination of cherries and chocolate is one of the great flavors we discovered from Europe. This duo is commonly found as a cake where cherry juice is liberally doused onto the chocolate cake layers so that every bite has the fruity flavor. Combined with the creaminess of the whipped cream and the warm bittersweet flavor of the chocolate, it's a flavor that is quite unique.
That's why this refrigerator cake is the perfect chance to recreate this flavor without having to exert too much effort. You still get the flavors you want in an easier-to-make recipe that doesn't need an oven to make.
Mango Float Freezer Cake
Probably one of the most popular, the mango float only requires broas, graham crackers, all-purpose cream, and mangoes. You can switch it up by adding Earl grey flavors like in our recipe, but at its simplest, it's just about layering ingredients and letting it chill in the refrigerator.
What other ice cream combinations do you love? We bet you can turn that flavor too into an easy refrigerator cake recipe! As long as you have the ingredients and some all-purpose cream on hand, any of these no-bake refrigerator cakes can be made right at home.
