Eclair Cake Recipe

Written by Anna White

For the last 15 years or more I have been making eclair cake after my aunt showed up to a family get together with one of these delicious desserts. My children loved them so much that my son use to request this as his birthday cake. I would make it up and add candles to it. 

I looked back for photos to commemorate the birthdays we had this and all I could find was from 2004 when he turned 13, 2006 and 2007 at 15 & 16, respectively. I’ll add the birthday pics at the end below the recipe.

Back in the day when I made them I used to use a different chocolate topping, but have been unable to find the chocolate anymore so the revised frosting was from someone else and to be honest I have yet to make one with this revised frosting as I don’t think it will be as good as the original version. I really wish Nestle would still make the chocolate I used to use.

If anyone takes a chance and fixes one of these, let me know how that chocolate frosting really taste.
