Recipe for Graham Cracker Cake with Coffee Icing

For years as a child my mother always made our favorite cake. I don't have the recipe and really want it. It was a graham cracker cake with coffee icing. It was dark, extremely moist and oh so delicious. My mother was born in 1910.

Does anyone have the recipe? I so much would like to find it. I do know it used graham crackers for the flour. Please help.

My mother used to make the icing and put it on graham crackers for us to eat as a treat. I believe it was powered sugar and a bit of coffee. She'd add food coloring.
