I am obsessed with Eclairs! This pastry is delectable! I probably eat way to many when they are put in front of my face :) Many of you have seen my family’s recipe for Eclair Cake, and trust me, that recipe is OUTSTANDING! Definitely try it if you haven’t… it is way to easy and delicious to pass up :)
When I laid eyes upon this recipe from one of my favorite food blogs, The Girl Who Ate Everything, I knew I had to give it a try. I adapted the recipe and the end result was FANTASTIC. It completely reminded me of a personal eclair, but with very little effort and very little time! We ate this to celebrate my baby sister’s birthday and there was none at the end of the day!
