Cream puff crust and custard filling topped with whipped cream and drizzled with chocolate. This delicious dessert is sure to become a family favorite.
It is the second installment of this year's Dairy Week event......
Today is my dearest friend, Kirsten's, birthday. She is spending it in heaven, I am spending it here on earth missing her terribly. Her husband, John, is having a party for her birthday. A Fish Fry. I am bringing dessert...Kirsie's Eclair Cake.
Kirsie and I became friends after I moved into this area in 2001. We met at church, we were in the choir together. From the moment we met we had an immediate connection. We became fast friends, and then we became family. She was the first person I called when I had happy news. She was the first person I called when I was troubled. She was the first person I turned to when I needed help. She had a constant smile and gave the best hugs in the world. I loved her and I miss her terribly.
In the 20 years of friendship, we had a lot of gatherings and Kirsten always provided this Eclair Cake for dessert. It was Frank's favorite and sometimes she would just make it for him for no reason other than she loved him.
I never asked for the recipe, there was no need.....I would just know that she would bring it to whatever function we had. Kirsten passed away from COVID on April 26th of 2021. This is her second heavenly birthday.
We had an end of year choir gathering, as we break for the summer, last weekend. I asked John for Kirsten's recipe and made this in her memory and honor. It turned out well and Kirs would have been very pleased.
John asked if I would bring it to Kirsten's Birthday Party today. I am honored to do so and I am happy to share this wonderful recipe with all of you as we celebrate National Dairy Month.
I want to thank Jolene of Jolene's Recipe Journal for hosting this event. Let's take a look at the other Dairy Month recipes being shared today.........
