Eclairs always look so beautiful in pastry shop windows. And they look like they'd be pretty complicated to make, too. Fortunately, one of our viewers shared a secret with us about how to get those same tastes in a light cake. Give Eclair Cake a whirl today!

What You'll Need

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, cut into quarters
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 eggs, at room temperature
  • 3 cups milk
  • 2 (4-serving size) packages instant chocolate pudding and pie filling
  • 1 (8 ounces) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a medium saucepan, bring water, butter, and salt to a boil over medium-high heat. Add flour all at once and stir quickly with a wooden spoon until mixture forms a ball; remove saucepan from heat. Add 1 egg to mixture and beat with a wooden spoon to blend. Add remaining eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Spread mixture over bottom of 10- x 15-inch rimmed cookie sheet or jelly roll pan that has been coated with cooking spray.
  3. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until edges are golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool. Meanwhile, in large bowl with an electric beater on high speed, beat milk and pudding mix together until thick. Spread evenly over baked shell, then chill 1 hour. Spread whipped topping over chocolate pudding and drizzle with chocolate syrup just before serving.

Why no video would really be nice if there was a way you could provide videos for all your recipes.

Hi there! The only recipes that have videos are featured recipes that go on the daily news. While we would love to have a video for every recipe you're talking about several thousands of videos. It's simply not feasible. Thanks so much for your feedback!

Made this for an early Valentines Day dinner, it's amazing, just like a Crme Puff only better!
