Layers of strawberry pudding, graham crackers, and strawberry jam makes this Strawberry Shortcake Eclair Cake such a delicious no bake treat. It is the perfect dessert to satisfy that sweet tooth when you are short on time.
I had a version of this dessert on a cruise years ago. I'm not quite sure of what it was made of, but it reminded me of eclair cake with a strawberry twist.
Our Walmart carries an instant Strawberry Creme Jello Pudding Mix that I knew would work perfectly for this cake. If you can't find that pudding, use instant vanilla pudding and a little bit of strawberry Jello powder.
This cake is seriously so easy to have put together and in your fridge in minutes. It is just layers of pudding and graham crackers in a pan. You really can't get much easier than that.
Most eclair cakes have a melted frosting that gets poured on top, but I wanted another layer of strawberries to make this dessert stand out. Simmering strawberries with a little bit of sugar makes a thick jelly.
It was a delicious way to top off this easy no bake cake. It also totally added to the strawberry shortcake look!

Walmart has a strawberry pudding mix??? I need to keep an eye out for that -- sounds incredible! My guy loves fruity desserts, especially ones with lemon or berries, and they're basically the only ones he'll eat. (Never any chocolate -- oh well, more for me!) So sweet of you to make such a pretty pink dessert for Lisa!
Thanks Amy! 🙂
I love how simple yet DELICIOUS this is, Jocelyn! What a perfect shower dessert! So happy to be part of this shower for Lisa.....now if only we could sample all the desserts everyone shared! 🙂
