{ Key Lime Pudding Cake Parfait }

Happy Tuesday & St. Patrick's Day guys!! I'm a bit Irish, so I'm celebrating by making a greenish dessert he-he { more so because my hubby is a sugar addict }! This simple & actually refreshing dessert is so easy to make & it makes quite a bit to share with friends & family for special occasions or just because!  Keep reading for this yummy treat & recipe below. 


.. Ingredients ..

  • 1 jar key lime pie filling
  • splash of pure lime juice
  • half a bag cinnamon graham crackers
  • cinnamon
  • 4 cups vanilla pudding
  • pinch of powder sugar
  • 1 lemon cake mix { 4 eggs, oil, water }
  • pinch of almonds
  • banana slices for garnish
  • 1 container vanilla frosting

.. Directions ..

This is my very own recipe so I will explain simply what I did ,but I don't have exact recipe as I wasn't reading from a card or Pinterest pin. I baked the cake to the directions on the box, with he exception of adding 4 eggs instead of 3 for a more moist cake! After the cake was cool I cut both cakes { I used two round glass pie dishes } in the middle into mini round cakes. I placed the first one in the bottom of the parfait dish & covered it with the key lime pie filling. I then placed the second piece of  cake on top of the first piece & covered it with the 4 cups of vanilla pudding.The liquid will fill the sides or should , if not use a spoon to cover top of cake pieces & the sides. After the second piece of cake is covered in the vanilla pudding take the crust from one of the cakes & place around the outer edge of dish as perfect as possible. Cover this last step with 1/3 container vanilla frosting or less . Pour the smashed up graham crackers on the top of the frosting & garnish with some cinnamon. Take a few pieces of almonds & banana slices & garnish top in a little circle & chill !!

Wishing you all a happy & safe St. Paddy's Day!
