    Someone at my work made a cake like this before for a work party. I loved it and never knew how they made it. Now I know and I will have to try your recipe.

  15. 15

    I've always wanted to make a cream puff cake and have never done it. But, this one looks delicious so I'm inspired. I love chilled desserts in the summer. I'd like to invite you to share your recipe on A Well-Seasoned Life's Sweet Indulgences Sunday.http://www.wellseasonedlife.com/2011/07/sweet-indulgences-sunday-14.html

    This looks amazing!! Can’t wait to try it!

    This is interesting because the crust is precisely the ingredients of my German pancake recipe. It’s put together differently but cooking up the same way. Thirty minutes is much too long in my oven, so start to watch it at about 20. I’m anxious to taste it once it’s done. I’m taking it to lunch with my girlfriends tomorrow.

  19. 22

    This looks so beautiful and good. Thursday Food Fest is open and I’d love if you could link this up! Thanks, Sarah

    This is one of the best deserts I’ve ever made! It was to die for! I actually only had 2 cups of milk (which I only discovered halfway through making it), but I did have vanilla yogurt. So, I took a chance and used the yogurt to make up the missing 3rd cup of milk. That is the best mistake I’ve ever made! It was so delicious! Thanks for the recipe!

    • 24

      SOOO glad you liked it, Whitney!! It is seriously the dessert I ask for each year on my birthday! It’s so yummy and I’m glad you agree. :)

  21. 25

    This cake looks delicious. Can’t wait to try it. Can butter be substituted for the margarine?

  22. 26

    Wow!

  23. 27

    Holy cow! This is truly one of the best desserts I have ever made! It was just awesome and everyone loved it. Only one difference, I didn’t have margarine so I used butter. Making again this weekend for my in-laws!

  24. 28

    this looks amazing!
    I am from Canada and I wanted to get clarification on the exact measurement for the margarine.
    We have margarine in tubs.

    Thanks so much!

  25. 29

    I wonder if I let it cook too long/not long enough….the pastry was chewy and tasted like eggs….The filling was delish. Do you know what I could have done wrong?

  26. 30

    This is a favorite at our house too…we call it Eclair Cake~ either way, it’s YUMMY!!!

    for the cheese n cool whip, are they 18 oz or one 8 oz???

  28. 33

    I was wondering if you have to make the pudding first then mix with the milk and cream cheese or just put the pudding package in along with the milk and cream cheese? Looks so good. I can’t wait to make this

  29. 34

    This is a great recipe! My cream cheese didn’t thaw long enough and it was all crumbly :( :( but still delicious!

  30. 35

    MMMMmmmmmmmm!!!! Cream puffs are like one of my top 5 favorite foods. I am definitely going to be making this….like next week. Thanks!

    Just tried this recipe and the crust rose up really high in just the middle. I’m not sure what the problem is.

  32. 37

    My filling was really runny. I followed your directions exactly so I don’t know what went wrong. Not too fond on the cake part, tastes like egg and flour will make sure to add sugar and vanilla next time.

  33. 38

    CANT WAIT TO TRY THESE THINGS !!

    I made this Cream Puff cake today for my Family/Friends @ a Game night I hosted. I couldn’t have been happier with the results. This recipe is amazing! It came out just as the picture indicated it would. Everyone loved it, the crust was perfect and the filling was the perfect sweetness. If the directions are well followed, everyone will be happy with the results. I also loved how pretty it was. I will make again, and again!

      Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by! It really is my favorite cake ever! SO glad it turned out and that everyone loved it. Have a great day! :D

    This turned out delicious…but the crust rose very high and freaked me out. To me the egg taste was very apparent. I wonder if you leave out one egg if would help or ruin it. The cream filling was so delicious it did cover the egginess, but I did notice it. Everyone elsevtjughtbitceas amazing. I’m gonna make it again, but tweak a little… Thank you for sharing it.

    MY FAVORITE CREAM PUFF IS WITH COCONUT CREAM !

    I did not like the way the crust turned out..mine puffed up the sides. Decided to make a graham cracker crust instead. Also you should beat the cream cheese first, otherwise you cannot get out the lumps! Next time I will do that and blend pudding and milk together and then add cream cheese. I know mine won’t be like a cream puff exactly, but here’s hoping it will taste okay…serving it to a women’s golf league!

    combination. I would make it again and
    have shared it with a friend. Thanks.

    I love baking and anything creating or chocolate goes over well with my gang. Thanks for your posts.

  41. 48

    Darn spell check I wanted to say creating not creating.

    I made the inside out cream puff cake with one small adjustment. I used sheets of frozen puff pastry (because I’m lazy!). My husband said he’ll be happy to take this dessert off my hands anytime I care to make.

    Thanks for the shortcut inspiration.

    • 51

      Hi Maureen! Can’t believe I’ve never thought to use the Frozen Puff Pastry – that’s genius!!! I will have to try that next time. I’m sure it tastes just as great. :)

  43. 52

    Can 1 stick of butter be used instead of margarine in your recipe?

  44. 53
