Jamie Wilson, 27, has challenged dessert lovers to try to tame the ‘eclair to end all eclairs’ - but said the dessert would scare even the most sweet toothed among us.

The creamy delight weighs five pounds and will swallow your calorie intake for two days in just one sitting.

It can be ordered for £20 at Heathfield Farm in Birkenshaw, near Bradford, but has yet to be defeated in two years since the challenge was introduced.

The custardy creation is filled to the brim with freshly made cream and custard, before being topped with a decadent chocolate ganache and white chocolate shavings.

Each component of the eclair is made fresh by a team of eight bakers and pastry chefs at the carvery each morning.

Jamie, who is the manager at the eatery, is so confident of its invincibility she has not put a time limit for challengers to finish the delightful dessert.

Victors will be awarded with a delicious pudding and a t-shirt to remember their successful conquest.

Since the challenge was introduced in 2019, 15 people have attempted and failed to finish the gargantuan pudding.

Jamie said: “It’s definitely the biggest eclair you can get in the country.

“It’s massive, it’ll take a seriously special person to finish it - I don’t believe anyone can do it.

“It’s full of cream, chocolate, and custard. It’s delicious and just beautiful. But I could never attempt it, no chance.”

The eclairs are the carvery’s biggest seller on their dessert menu according to Jamie.

She said families will usually order the giant version to share on birthdays when they want to have a unique treat instead of a cake.

The eatery said the eclair must be pre-ordered and is only available for eating in.
