Eclair Cake



  • 1 stick (1/2 c) of butter
  • 1 c water
  • 1 c flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 5 c milk
  • 3 (3.5oz) pkgs instant vanilla pudding
  • 1 container cool whip
  • Nutella, melted

Preheat oven to 400 F.

Melt butter and water to boiling. Add flour and stir until it forms into a ball. Remove from heat and place mixture into kitchenmaid or mixer. Add eggs one at a time mixing well. Spread thin layer into greased cookie sheet or 2 9x13 pans and bake for 15 minutes. When you pull the crust out of the oven poke the puffs and flatten them.

While the crust is in the oven start to mix up the filling. Add cream cheese to mixer and begin to mix until smooth. Then add 2 cups of milk and mix. Add the rest of the milk and the pudding mixes and continue to mix until smooth. 

When the crust is cool spread the filling mixture over the top. Let this layer set for a few minutes in the fridge. When the filling is set, spread cool whip over the top of it.  Then drizzle with melted Nutella. It’s  a hit!
