Eclair Cake

"This is a very quick and simple no bake dessert cake. It uses graham crackers and a pudding mixture. It tastes just like an eclair, but there is enough for a crowd!! It is a great recipe for children who are learning to cook, there is no baking involved or any power kitchen tools. Just a bowl and a spoon!"

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. In a medium bowl, thoroughly blend the pudding mix, whipped topping, and milk.
  2. Arrange a single layer of graham cracker squares in the bottom of a 13x9 inch baking pan. Evenly spread half of the pudding mixture over the crackers. Top with another layer of crackers and the remaining pudding mixture. Top with a final layer of graham crackers.
  3. Spread the frosting over the whole cake up to the edges of the pan. Cover, and chill at least 4 hours before serving.


  • Note
  • The frosting will be easier to spread if the cake is covered and chilled for about 30 minutes before spreading.

Very easy to make and tastes wonderful. I'll make this one again! Melting the frosting is the way to go...pour it on and then refrigerate!

Eclair cake is the best. I use my own home made frosting, better than anything out of a can. We also let it sit over night. It is better when the graham crackers get soft.
