Layered Eclair Cake

I do not like eclairs. But I DO like my husband. So I made this for him. And guess what, I LOVED it! I'm not a fan of the pastry part of the eclair. And I discovered its because I've never had FRESH eclairs.  This was really yummy and just what we needed to celebrate my husband. Love him.


1 c. water
1/2 c. butter
1 c. flour
4 eggs

1 (8 oz.) pkg cream cheese, softened
1 (5.1 oz.) pkg vanilla instant pudding
3 c. cold milk

Homemade whipped cream (about 2 cups whipped)
chocolate syrup (like an ice cream topping)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease 9x13 pan.

In a medium pan, melt butter in water and bring to boil. Remove from heat and stir in flour. Mix one egg in at a time, mixing completely before adding another. {this is where I got worried, but I just kept mixing and it turned scrambled eggs} Spread mixture evenly into 9x13 pan. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.

While the crust cools, make vanilla pudding according to package directions and allow to set up in the fridge. In a separate bowl, whip cream cheese. Slowly add pudding to cream cheese and mix until there are no lumps {this will take a few minutes, don't give up}

When the crust is completely cool, pour the filling in. Top with whipped cream and drizzle with chocolate sauce.
