I am loving Church Dinners

Last night we had dinner at our church and the kids ate sooo good. They served thin chicken breasts breaded and baked, corn, baked beans, yeast rolls and Eclair Cake.
The cake was sooo yummy and sounded easy to make. Here is the recipe that I found online for it. The reviews say it is better to heat the icing in the microwave a few seconds and to let the dessert sit overnight in fridge.
THe beans tasted just like Big John Beans. I will have to ask for the recipe for that.
Enjoy. Yum Yum!!!

Eclair Cake

"This is a very quick and simple no bake dessert cake. It uses graham crackers and a pudding mixture. It tastes just like an eclair, but there is enough for a crowd!! It is a great recipe for children who are learning to cook, there is no baking involved or any power kitchen tools. Just a bowl and a spoon!"

25 Min
4 Hrs 25 Min
Original recipe yield 1 - 13x9 inch pan





  • 2 (3.5 ounce) packages instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 (16 ounce) package graham cracker squares
  • 1 (16 ounce) package prepared chocolate frosting


  1. In a medium bowl, thoroughly blend the pudding mix, whipped topping, and milk.
  2. Arrange a single layer of graham cracker squares in the bottom of a 13x9 inch baking pan. Evenly spread half of the pudding mixture over the crackers. Top with another layer of crackers and the remaining pudding mixture. Top with a final layer of graham crackers.
  3. Spread the frosting over the whole cake up to the edges of the pan. Cover, and chill at least 4 hours before serving.


The frosting will be easier to spread if the cake is covered and chilled for about 30 minutes before spreading.
