How to Make Cream Puff Cake


  • 1Pre-Heat oven to 400 degrees
  • 2In a sauce pan, combine water and butter and bring to a boil. Remove from heat & beat in the flour, a a little bit at a time until the mixture starts to pull away from the sides of the pan. Add eggs, one at a time, and beat until it forms a sticky (may be a bit runny) dough. Spread into a cake pan and smooth on bottom.
    Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes. It will appear golden & very puffy. If big bubbles form,DO NOT break or push them down!) Cool completely before filling.
  • 3For the Filling:
    Beat softened cream cheese until smooth, with a mixer.
    Adda bit of milk & cream again.
    Add the remaining milk & the instant pudding mix.
    Beat for 2 minutes
    Smooth filling over the cooled cake crust
    Let the Cool Whip soften and spread over pudding.
    *You may drizzle with Hershey's chocolate syrup.
    Keep refrigerated.
