For the Coffee Cream Layer:

For the Crumb Layer:

  • 1 and 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the sweetened condensed milk, instant coffee granules, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  3. Gently fold the coffee mixture into the whipped cream until evenly incorporated.
  4. In another bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, granulated sugar, and melted butter, stirring until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  5. Spread half of the crumb mixture evenly into the bottom of an 8×8-inch square baking dish or a similar-sized container.
  6. Pour half of the coffee cream mixture over the crumb layer and spread it out evenly.
  7. Repeat the layers with the remaining crumb mixture and coffee cream.
  8. Cover the baking dish with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and freeze for at least 6 hours, or until firm.
  9. Once frozen, cut into squares or scoop into bowls to serve.



  • Feel free to customize your Frozen Coffee Cake by adding chocolate chips, chopped nuts, or a drizzle of caramel sauce between the layers.
  • For a stronger coffee flavor, you can increase the amount of instant coffee granules to suit your taste.

Q: Can I use regular brewed coffee instead of instant coffee granules?
