Eclair Cake

Last month I brought you the “No Bake” Strawberry Icebox Cake. This week, I’m bringing you another “No Bake” dessert in the form of an Eclair Cake. From the bits and pieces of research I’ve done online, there seem to be several different versions of this cake. This recipe is coming from my husband’s family and it is super yummy!

“No Bake” desserts are quickly becoming a spring and summer favorite of mine. I love the ease of just throwing a few things together and then letting it hang out in the fridge to do the rest of the work. Anything that it not heating up my kitchen during the warmer months is a plus in my book!

This cake is perfect for a crowd. Not only does it serve like a million and a half people, but it also tastes like a Boston Cream Pie! Now who wouldn’t like that!

Make this the next time your needing an easy dessert to throw together that won’t heat up the kitchen!
