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!
