If you pick up any southern cookbook, you'll likely find this recipe. This cake (which is not really a 'cake' but more like a pudding) is a southern favorite.

Chocolate Eclair Cake

1 box graham crackers
2 (3 1/4-ounce) boxes instant French vanilla pudding
3 1/2 cups milk
1 (8-ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed

1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1/3 cup milk
2 teaspoons light corn syrup
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

(Tip: For an even quicker frosting, use 1 can of chocolate frosting (found near the cake mixes at your grocery store). Remove lid and foil from the icing. Microwave for a minute or so till the icing is melted and stir. Then cover top layer with melted icing and refrigerate until frosting has hardened again.)

Butter the bottom of a 13 by 9 by 2-inch pan. Line with whole graham crackers. In bowl of an electric mixer, mix pudding with milk; beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Fold in whipped topping. Pour half the pudding mixture over graham crackers. Place another layer of whole graham crackers on top of pudding layer. Pour over remaining half of pudding mixture and cover with another layer of graham crackers.

For frosting, blend together sugar and cocoa. Add butter and milk, mixing well. Add corn syrup and vanilla. Stir until creamy. Cover cake with frosting and refrigerate for 24 hours.

God bless,
