In this Pumpkin Eclair Cake, combination of pureed pumpkin and spices with easy, no bake eclair cake recipe is a winner.

It is really quick and simple to make an eclair cake: layers of graham crackers alternating with pudding/whipped cream mixture, topped with a luxurious, yet simple-to-make, chocolate ganache frosting. No need to turn on the oven and ready in minutes.

Fantastic and super easy recipe for a seasonal cake, great for fall and winter holidays and parties.

P.S. I made this cake with homemade graham crackers. I will post the recipe next time.
