There are dozens of similar recipes on Zaar for Eclair Cake but believe it or not I could not find one exactly like this one, so here it is. The basic difference is that the icing is from scratch and not canned, nor does it contain Karo syrup. Cooking time listed is the 24 hour chilling time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Line 9 x 12 pan with graham crackers.
  2. Mix pudding with milk and stir in whipped topping till smooth/no lumps. Pour half of pudding over graham crackers.

This was a big hit at the family picnic! I was able to get a piece before it was gone and I'm glad I did, this desert was very good! I'll be making this again. Thanks for sharing!
