Mouthwatering No Bake Dessert: Caramel Apple Eclair Cake - A Delectable Blend of Vanilla Pudding, Cinnamon Apples, and Decadent Caramel


– 1.5 cans (20 ounces each) of apple pie filling (30 ounces total)
– 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
– ¼ teaspoon of nutmeg
– 1 package of cinnamon graham crackers
– 2 boxes (3.4 ounces each) of instant vanilla pudding mix
– 2 cups of cold milk
– 2 cups of heavy cream
– ½ cup of powdered sugar
– 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
– Homemade Caramel Sauce, caramel dip, or a pre-packaged caramel topping


1. Transfer the apple pie filling to a bowl, and use scissors to cut the apple pieces into smaller chunks.
2. Mix in the cinnamon and nutmeg with the apple pie filling, then set it aside.
3. In a separate large bowl, combine the instant vanilla pudding, milk, and powdered sugar.
4. Incorporate the heavy whipping cream and vanilla extract into the pudding mixture. Use a hand mixer to beat until creamy and thick, approximately 3-4 minutes.
5. Arrange a single layer of cinnamon graham crackers in a 9×13-inch baking dish.
6. Spoon half of the apple pie filling over the graham crackers.
7. Follow with half of the vanilla pudding mixture over the apple pie filling.
8. Repeat the layering process with another set of graham crackers, apple pie filling, vanilla pudding, and a final layer of graham crackers.
9. Heat the caramel topping in the microwave and carefully pour it over the top layer of graham crackers. Smooth it out.
10. Refrigerate the cake for at least 4-6 hours, with overnight chilling being optimal.
