Knowing how tired I get of regular cakes, my dear friend Sharon made me this fabulous eclair cake for my B-day. Oh my gosh it is to die for , like eating an eclair for 20! Not overkill sweet... just right! I hope you all will try it out, it is so refreshing after Caaaaaaaaaaaaaake hehe
That does look yummy! When you spread the flour mixture on the cookie sheet, about how big do you make it? I mean, approximately equal to what size pan for us visual people? Thank you for sharing this, I have a pot luck next weekend and I really don't feel like bringing cake for a change.
You can just spread it on a regular cookie sheet or a 13X9 pan On the cookie sheet you end up with a slightly larger eclair about 11X14. I'm making one tonight I will take a pic of it and post on this forum
Thanks! For some reason I'm just not visualizing this correctly. The pic will be just what I need!
this sounds to die for! Thanks for posting the recipe, i cant wait to see the pic!
Ok so I didn't get a pic-ran out of time today, however diffinitely use a standard cookie sheet it will get you more "cake" and not be as doughy as a 13X9 pan. I left mine in for around 35 minutes. Basically you want the dough to have a nice lightly golden top...just like an eclair or cream puff would. As for the chocolate part it was hard to spread, but I had some ganache so I just heated it slighty(to slighty runny) then it spread just great!
I think I'm going to make it this weekend. Sounds delish!
