Oh So Delicious .....Eclair Cake!



Five ingredients. That's all. This Eclair Cake is so lovely, and so so good. It's really light and heavenly.  I made it for Easter a few weeks ago, took it to my sister-in-law's house and LITERALLY every man, woman and child loved this dessert. The men got huge plate fulls of it. The women loved it. The toddlers loved it. The older kids loved it. The Grandma's and Grandpa's loved it. Do you get the point? It is sooooooo delicious. I got asked for the recipe by everybody there, and was able to tell them off memory because it is truly that easy. If you want something that is so easy and that everybody in your family will love,
 MAKE THIS!


Here's what you need:

Well, and milk to make the pudding. Shoot. Do I need to add a picture of milk? If you want to see a picture with milk in it, look at the picture above. The glass of milk by this Oh So Delicious! ECLAIR CAKE. Yes it is good. Ok.... Here's the recipe:

1 box graham crackers
2 (3 1/4-ounce) boxes French vanilla instant pudding
3 1/2 cups milk
1 (8-ounce) container Cool Whip, thawed
1 can chocolate frosting (I recommend Milk Chocolate)

(I have since made this for just my husband, and I just halved the recipe and made in a smaller pan.)


Spray the bottom of a 9x13 pan with cooking spray. Line the bottom of the pan with whole graham crackers. (You may have to break some to completely cover) In bowl of an electric mixer, mix pudding with milk; beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Fold in whipped topping. Pour half the pudding mixture over graham crackers. Place another layer of whole graham crackers on top of pudding layer. Pour over remaining half of pudding mixture and cover with another layer of graham crackers.

Heat the container of prepared frosting, uncovered in the microwave for 1 minute. Pour over the top of the cake. Refrigerate for at least 12 hours before serving.

Once you pull out of the fridge the next day, the graham crackers will be softened and that is what will form your crust. And here is what it will come out like...... and you will love it. xoxoxoxo



I got the original idea for this recipe from Plain Chicken
