Nutella Strawberry Eclair Dessert

I should've never ever tasted this dessert. It took me awhile to try it because I don't like Nutella, but when I did, I was hooked. I love the lightness of the crust and the creamy pudding. This is another one of my husband's favorites. McKinzie made this for a few of our family get-togethers. This last January, Kalani was insistent on this being her "birthday cake". We just love it that much. Enjoy!

Crust

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 whole eggs

Bavarian Cream Layer

  • 2 small boxes vanilla instant pudding
  • 4 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup milk

Toppings

  • 2 cups strawberries (sliced)
  • 3/4 cup Nutella

Crust

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Boil water and butter together in a medium sauce pan. Remove from heat. Beat in the flour and sugar with hand mixer. Add eggs one at a time, continuously beating. Spray jelly roll pan with cooking spray. Spread mixture evenly in pan. Bake for 25 minutes. Cool completely.

Cream

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine pudding, cream and milk together and beat until smooth and thick. Spread over cooled crust. Spread strawberries over dessert. Using a piping bag, drizzle warmed Nutella over dessert and strawberries. Refrigerate for one hour before serving.
