April 2008 ROM - Eclair Sheet Cake

Éclair Sheet Cake

The Approval Committee was honored to recieve this little gem from a real trouble-maker, the one and only Jul-Bug! If you like Eclairs, you will absolutely love this recipe...plus it's a lot easier to make. There may be several similar recipes for Eclair Cake out there on the world-wide web, but this is the only one that has been tested and approved by the Approval Committee. Need I say more?

Give this recipe a try the next time you are planning on having a few people over for some good times and you'll be the talk of the town...plus it will also help minimize the risk of eating the whole thing by yourself (it is deceptively light and addictive)! Keep those recipes coming!
