During the summer, I like to avoid using my oven as often as possible. Where I live, it stays around 100 degrees for about 6 months each year. So finding great desserts to please my family and guests that don’t mean turning on the oven is just what I need. Icebox cakes are what I turn to when I want a sweet treat to beat the heat.
What is an Icebox Cake?
Most simply, an icebox cake is a cake served cold or frozen. For a long time, I thought that an icebox cake meant exclusively that it was a no-bake recipe. I recently learned that not all icebox cakes are no-bake. There are some creative cooks out there who are whipping up some great new poke style icebox cakes and other ways to put a new twist on a classic.
Since I’m planning our annual back yard barbecue soon, I wanted to find some great recipes for a great summertime dessert that is easy to make and will please the family. Check out what we found. There are some recipes that are sure to strike your fancy! And I even found some icebox cakes that are perfect for other times of the year too.
