Eclair Cake Recipe

Eclair Cake is the perfect dessert to have after comfort food. It’s light and sweet and extremely hard to resist! The recipe only calls for a few ingredients and only takes a few minutes to make.

I have made this dessert for a lot of our family get-togethers, but it’s usually the one I end up taking to the family reunion. Our family reunion is in the summer and eclair cake is a nice cool and refreshing dessert on a hot day. People always flock toward the chocolate!

My best friend requested that I make one for her and her family for their Thanksgiving meal one year. It was a huge hit and my dish came back clean as a whistle.
