This Homemade Chocolate Eclair Cake is a delicious dessert. I have eaten Chocolate Eclair Cake for years but this is one of the best! This is one of three types of Eclair Cakes we have listed. Be sure to check them all out!

Ingredients for:  Homemade Chocolate Eclair Cake:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup flour
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 large box (5.1 ounces) vanilla instant pudding
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 8 oz. container cool whip (you won’t use the whole container) or one batch of homemade whipped cream
  • chocolate syrup or homemade chocolate sauce

Instructions for Homemade Chocolate Eclair Cake:

  1. Preheat oven to 400. Lightly grease a 9″X13″ glass baking pan.
  2. Eclair Crust: In a medium saucepan, melt butter in water and bring to a boil.
  3. Remove from heat. Stir in flour. Mix in one egg at a time, mixing completely before adding another egg.
  4. Spread mixture into pan, covering the bottom and sides evenly. *If the sides of your pan are too greased you won’t be able to get the mixture to stay up the sides so make sure to just lightly grease.
  5. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown (Mine only took 25 minutes.) You may want to check it occasionally, you don’t want to overcook the crust, it will ruin the cake!
  6. Remove from oven and let cool (don’t touch or push bubbles down).

Filling for:  Homemade Chocolate Eclair Cake:

  1. Whip cream cheese in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl make vanilla pudding.
  2. Make sure pudding is thick before mixing in with cream cheese.
  3. Slowly add pudding to cream cheese, mixing until there are no lumps.
  4. Let cool in the fridge.When the crust is completely cooled, pour filling in.
  5. Top with a layer of cool whip however thick you want it and serve with chocolate syrup. *If you want to make this even better use homemade whipped cream.

We hope you enjoy your Homemade Chocolate Eclair Cake.
