make a cake
to celebrate the lucky winner of the
Williams Sonoma Copper Soup Station.
We feel really bad that we don't have
a roomful of them to mail out
we have planned another really fun
for the month of October.
The winner is.................
from Singing With Birds.
Congratulations Renee, hope you enjoy
your wonderful gift.
was blown away with all
the people who supported us on
this giveaway. Thank you so much.
This next giveaway is something Beaulah
picked out! Can't wait to show you in
about a week!
The cake we made is
Peanut Butter Chocolate Eclair Cake -
of course it needed to be chocolate.
This is one of those cakes that have been around
since I was young - eons ago!
I first made it out of an old church cookbook
that my aunt gave me when I was in college.
This is a variation of one that was created by
She added the peanut butter and used chocolate
graham crackers. What an upgrade.
The filling is layered with the graham crackers
twice and then topped off with a fudge
frosting. You have to make this one
the day before so that the moist
goodness of the filling seeps into the grahams
and softens them so that the dessert just
melts in your mouth.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Eclair Cake
1 box chocolate graham crackers
2 - 3 1/4 oz. packages instant vanilla pudding
1 C. creamy peanut butter
3 1/2 C. milk

Place one layer of graham crackers on the bottom,
cutting to completely cover the bottom.
In mixing bowl mix the pudding, peanut butter
and milk with electric mixer. Mix for 2 minutes.
Fold in the Cool Whip.
Spread half the pudding mix on top of the
first layer of crackers. Place a second layer

pudding mix on 2nd layer of crackers. Finish
with a third layer of graham crackers.
Spread frosting on top of the last layer
of graham crackers all the way to the edge.
