  1. This recipe sure brought back memories. I use to make this and take to church dinners. The Baptist loves to eat and at least once a month would have lunch after church. It is so easy to make and tastes yummy.

  2. I don’t know if I have words to tell you what my face looked like while reading this recipe haha! I was like a kid in a candy store!

  3. Although I’m not able to eat sweets. And I am one that loves Éclair donuts. This almost made me pass out. Looks so good 🙂 Thanks for sharing this recipe

  4. I clicked onto your post and had to look no further. This was the first thing I saw and it looks totally amazing! Thanks!

  5. I will admit, eclairs are always a fun last-minute addition to my basket when grocery shopping and heading past the bakery in the supermarket! Everyone in our household loves eclairs as a sweet treat. This recipe is surprisingly easy, and is sure to be a crowd pleaser either with family dessert or company!

  6. I’ve seen versions of this recipe before but have never tried. Maybe the grandkids can help me make it this weekend!

  7. I absolutely LOVE Chocolate Eclairs!! When I was little, I tried to lick all the filling out first before I ate the delicious chocolate outside!! This recipe is pin-worthy!! Thank your mom for me & for sharing!!

  8. Oh me, oh my! I LOVE éclairs and this cake dessert look so decadent and delicious! I’m not much of a baker, but I think even I could do this! I can’t wait to try it. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

  9. I used to make this for every pot luck I went to back in the day. I never used homemade frosting though. My recipe said to only use Duncan Hines chocolate frosting, because it best represents the chocolate flavor on a real eclair. Now I want to try this one to see which tastes best! Thanks for the recipe 🙂

  10. We often have food days at work and I’ve been looking for something different to bring. This looks like a winner.

  11. This cake looks SO good, I wish I had all of the ingredients to make it right now! 😉 My kids will definitely love this one too. Thanks for the recipe!

  13. Yum! Both of these desserts look so delicious, I can’t wait to give them a try. Thank you for sharing this post.

  14. This is the best stuff on earth! I have made this exact recipe (only I use already made icing) for every single holiday dinner and it’s always the first thing gone. My niece is getting married next month and she’s requested this for her shower. Haha!

  15. The main thing I’ve noticed with eclaires is the fact that they are not a heavy dessert. They are very light which is satisfying after a meal. Thanks for linking up with the Delicious Dishes Recipe party!
