    golfergirlj's Note:

    There are other similar recipes, but this one is simply spectacular! I think it's because I have added an extra layer of the "frosting" to the middle. As if it needed to be richer... This recipe is from Paula Deen and I have simply doubled the frosting and just added another layer within the cake. As with other Eclair Cakes, this one is better if it sits in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours. Hard to resist digging in any sooner!
