Cream Puffs in a Pan

This dessert was what I made for Easter dinner (am I the only blogger still rehashing Easter?  we had Easter leftovers for supper tonight).

It's called Chocolate Eclair Dessert.  It's a fabulous crust like a cream puff, with gooey goodness spread on top.  I followed the recipe, but I want to try other combinations, especially when the summer fruit comes in.  Lemon curd, strawberries, and whipped cream would be fantastic.


This recipe is pretty close to what I made, except that I used vanilla pudding and I spread my crust-thing in a 10x15 jelly-roll pan.  I also pressed down the bubbles when I took the crust from the oven.

Now that I know how the recipe works, I can substitute thick homemade pudding and real whipped cream for the commercial stuff.  I would also prefer a real chocolate ganache to the icing.

I think I'm going to rename this Cream Puffs in a Pan or Pan Eclairs - to make it sound fabulous, as well as to distinguish it from my beloved Eclair Dessert.

  4. I really, really love "gooey desserts" and this is killing me. It looks fantastic. I'm trying very hard to think of a time that will necessitate such a dessert--maybe our next church potluck, but only if I am first in line at the dessert table.

I enjoy the conversation in the comments - thank you for that. I will answer your questions here in the comments. Please note that I don't want the world wide web to know my family's surnames and location.
