Another Boston Cream Pie

by on June 12, 2008 · 5 comments

I haven’t made this yet, as we still have a whole pie to finish, but next time I might try this one.

It looks like everyone gave it 5 stars except for one person who seems to have forgot to add any stars.

Oh, that looks good. I think I’ll make this one for Father’s Day. From the other reviews, I’ll go ahead and double the cream filling. Looks good though…

The recipe looks rich and velvety – pull out the elasticized pants…

Boston Cream Pie is my favorite. Ooh! You should come up with a Boston Cream Pie cupcake!

Hi Anna, after you posted your boston cream pie, I remembered a recipe for an all-chocolate boston cream pie in one of my Hershey’s cookbooks from the 80s. The recipe is posted on recipezaar, although the glaze is slightly different:

I made it this morning with my daughter, since she is out of school and has no camp until next week. It went together easily, but my butter was not soft enough and my milk was too cold, so there were little butter chunks in the cake batter and the cake didn’t bake up that well. But we managed. The filling was puddinglike and not too rich – it has no eggs and not much butter. We enjoyed the cake, but not as much as the original boston cream pie. Still, it’s a promising idea.

Karen, I like the idea too. Here’s another recipe that might work better. It’s a chocolate genoise.

I believe this type of cake is also the standard base for Black Forest. Or at least the European style version of Black Forest.
