This Lemon Eclair Cake is super easy to make. It only takes about 5 minutes. The hardest part of this whole recipe is waiting overnight to let the cake set up. It is torture!!! You have to wait though. You need to give the graham crackers time to soften up before eating. I garnished the cake with some fresh lemon slices – just to make it pretty.

We LOVED this version of our favorite eclair cake. So light and fluffy. Full of amazing lemon flavor!! Give this a try the next time you need a dessert for a party. I promise it will be a hit!

  1. This was a huge hit! I only gave four stars as I altered the recipe a little. Don’t like canned frosting so I made a lemon glaze to go on top. Used fresh lemon juice and zest in it. Also, added fresh lemon zest to the pudding mixture. The cake didn’t hold up well when cut, but that was probably due to too much Cool Whip. The store was out of the smaller container and I bought the 12oz one and eyeballed the amount…which I guess I over did. Will make again, so easy and yummy.

  2. I don’t really care for the canned lemon frosting, so I think I will use a cream cheese frosting on the top, or vanilla frosting.

  3. Unknown that was great advice. I will also do this as there is only two of us. I should have thought of this. LOL!!!

  4. I just made this using 1 box lemon pudding and 1 box cheesecake pudding. Not as lemony but it was OMG lemon cheesecake flavored. Whipped topping companies really need to make half size containers so I can half this recipe. theres only 2 of us in my house. We dont really need to eat all of this. ( But, we probably will :-p )

    1. When you bring the whipped topping home pop it out (still frozen) onto plastic wrap and cut in half. Wrap 1 piece and keep in freezer, put the other half back in the container and store in the fridge until ready to use.

  5. Gotta love the no-bake desserts! You bet I'll be making it this weekend. I find the nonstick spray completely unnecessary, though.

  6. This looks amazing! I've seen a vanilla version, but not lemon and I'm all about the lemon desserts for summer! Yum!
