Eclair Cake

It's recipe time again. Found another one I had to share. I had a little swimming party last Saturday night and my friend, Anna, brought a delicious, unusual cake. It looks and tastes like a delectable cream puff. Honest. I am not sure where she got the recipe but we all loved it and I thought you might like it too. The name of it is 'Eclair Cake' but I renamed it because to me, it tastes exactly like a cream puff. After all, a cream puff by any other name is still a cream puff. LOL. It is every bit as good if not better after being refrigerated. Enjoy!

Here is what Anna said about it:

“The eclair cake is from the Atchafalaya Legacy cookbook a friend from New Orleans gave me. I'm almost embarrassed to give you the recipe. You won't BELIEVE how easy it is to make!!!! It will totally ruin my reputation. But here goes.


1 box graham crackers in squares
2 small boxes vanilla instant pudding mix
3 cups milk (I used Homestead creamery regular)
1 (8 oz) Cool whip
1 can chocolate frosting (I used Duncan Hines dark chocolate fudge)

Do not grease pan. I used a 9x13" pan for this. Mix together the pudding, milk and Cool Whip. Layer a pan with graham cracker squares. Layer of pudding mixture. Another layer of graham crackers and another layer of pudding mix. Top with another layer of graham crackers. Put chocolate frosting in the microwave to soften (30 sec then another 30 sec worked for me) Pour over the top of the layer of graham crackers. Refrigerate at least 1 hour. Enjoy!!!!

This is so easy, you can make any time you need an easy dessert. Just be sure to leave enough time to chill in the frig.
