The perfect Christmas dessert, esp for those folks who are more last-min! Delicious!

Eggnog Eclair Cake is a delightful fusion of the classic French éclair and the festive flavors of eggnog, a popular holiday beverage. This no-bake dessert combines the rich, creamy taste of vanilla pudding and eggnog and is layered with graham crackers for a comforting hint of warmth and sweetness. Éclairs, with their pastry base and custard filling, date back to nineteenth century France, while eggnog’s origins can be traced back to medieval Europe. This recipe brings these two traditional treats together in a simple yet elegant dessert that’s perfect for the holiday season or any special occasion.
This Eggnog Eclair Cake makes a sumptuous centerpiece for any dessert table. It’s best served chilled, which allows the layers to set and meld together harmoniously. The creamy sweetness of this cake pairs wonderfully with hot beverages such as coffee, tea, or even a mug of warm apple cider. Since the cake itself is rich, consider serving lighter sides like fresh fruit or a crisp winter salad to complement its velvety texture and indulgent flavor.
