Do you crush the graham

Do you crush the graham crackers? How long do you bake them?

You make the cake like you

You make the cake like you would a lasagna, with the graham crackers taking the place of the lasagna noodles, and the prune mixture between, like the meat and cheese. You don't crush the crackers and you don't bake it. You refrigerate it. Don't know why they put the "bake" part in, unless it's to include it in the general "baked goods" section.
