Easy Eclair Pudding Cake

An éclair pudding cake leans on the traditional French éclair to create a dreamy and creamy cake that is easier to make but just as delicious as the namesake it uses to create this recipe. Éclairs are a French pastry made with choux, a complex pastry made by boiling flour in water than beating in eggs to create a fantastically light dough that puffs magically when it is baked. The classic éclair is piped for baking and once done, filled with a custard, and topped with chocolate ganache. It is a creamy and dreamy delight. This recipe captures the wonderful rich and moist flavors with a fraction of the work.

This is a perfect recipe for advancing bakers to try out with little or no oversight required. There is some work on the stove top, and you have to be careful to not burn the custard, but after that, there is only layering and chilling to complete this yummy dessert. The dessert also uses some pre-packaged ingredients, which makes it really easy for young and new bakers to attempt. Simple dessert recipes and cake recipes like this one are a great place for beginner bakers to start out to practice their baking skills to master the science of baking.

Cakes have been made since ancient times. The first cakes were made to represent the shape of the moon and later on candles were put on them to re-create the glow of the moon. We still love cakes for a variety of occasions, especially birthdays each year when people are prompted to choose their favourite cake to have on their special day.
