    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • 1 box cinnamon graham crackers

Pudding Mix:

  • 2 boxes (3.4 ounces each) vanilla instant pudding mix
  • 2 liters of cold milk
  • 2 liters of heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Caramel sauce (pre-made preferred for ease)


  • 9×13-inch baking dish
  • Hand mixer


    Step 1: Prepare the Filling

    1. Take apple pie filling and cut the apple pieces into smaller bits directly in the can for easier layering.
    2. Stir in nutmeg and cinnamon until well mixed. Set aside.

    Step 2: Prepare Pudding Mix

    1. In a large bowl, blend the instant pudding mix with cold milk until smooth.
    2. Add heavy cream and vanilla extract. Beat with a hand mixer until the mixture is thick and creamy, about 3-4 minutes.

    Step 3: Assemble the Cake

    1. Line the bottom of a 9×13-inch baking dish with cinnamon graham crackers.
    2. Spread half of the spiced apple pie filling over the crackers.

    4. Place another layer of cinnamon graham crackers over the pudding.
    5. Top with the remaining pudding.
    6. Warm the caramel sauce slightly to make it pourable, then drizzle generously over the top.

    Step 4: Chill

    1. Refrigerate the eclair cake for at least 4-6 hours, preferably overnight, to allow the flavors to meld and the layers to set.

    Step 5: Serving

    1. Serve chilled directly from the refrigerator to maintain the cake’s structure.

    Storage Tips
