Old Fashioned Eclair Cake

Tara Pacheco


Sooo easy.. yet sooo good! Although not your typical version of an eclair cake, this light and airy dessert tastes close to the real thing. - and cuts out a bunch of the guilt. Especially when you substitute with light or fat/sugar free ingredients. The crackers melded with the pudding make a nice, flaky crust. It's just the right amount of sweet, & absolutely satisfies! This makes a small pan. But, feel free to double the recipe and put in a larger sized pan!
