One Bite of This Easy No-Bake Éclair Cake Recipe & You Won't Miss Those Bakery Éclairs

This may be one of my favorite dessert recipes ever. I can just imagine someone enjoying an éclair and wondering why something so delicious is a single-serve dessert item. Well, you don’t have to wonder about this any longer! You can make yourself an entire éclair cake. No baking required. Seriously!

This is my friend Sherry’s éclair cake recipe. Her easy recipes are always in high demand. Luckily she was kind enough to share it with me. So easy and delicious, you won't miss those bakery éclairs.

Cuisine: American 
Prep Time: 20 minutes plus 8 hours to chill 
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes plus 8 hours to chill 
Servings: Makes 1 cake



  • 14 - 15 whole graham crackers
  • 3 1/2 cups milk 
  • 2 packages (3.4 ounces each) instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 container (8 ounces) frozen Cool Whip, thawed


  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons butter 
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Line a 13x9-inch dish with half the graham crackers, breaking crackers to fit as needed.
