Eclair Cake

READY IN: 4hrs
Recipe by carolinafan

At Fourth of July cookouts or Christmas family and church get-togethers, I am always asked to bring this. This is even what my daughter asks me to prepare as her birthday cake. Simple to prepare but elegant tasting. I have tried versions with regular chocolate frosting but this is so much better. I hope you enjoy this recipe.

When I was a child my Mother always made a recipe similiar to this one. It was just the graham crackers and pudding layered, ending with the pudding which she sprinkled with graham cracker crumbs. Reading it brought back memories of my Mom and I thank you for that. Will definately try it as posted here. I have rated it a 5-star because I know how wonderful my Mother's was, and I'm sure this is as well.
