Boston Cream Pie
Total TimePrep: 45 min. + chilling Bake: 1 hour
I LOVE this recipe....for 96. I wish there were more of these!!!!!!!!!!!! I work in an elementary school with 75 teachers plus custodians, secretaries, etc and this is PERFECT. I am also thesocial chairman for our church and this recipe is a "no brainer". Please send MORE of these crowd pleasers.
Easy to make, family loved it!
I broke it down to one cake mix, and made the icing with the fudge topping, but instead of heating it, (where it breaks down the molecules)I added a little white Karo syrup to it to make it spreadable consistency. Yummy! I have in the past made it with my homemade cooked pudding when time permits. When I make it in round cake pans I add fresh raspberries or strawberries on top instead of the cherry. Great crowd pleaser for all ages. Goes fast at bake sales, too!!
anneamie - do you have a good pastry filling recipe you can share ? Please print !
Why on earth wouldn't you just make it with two 8" cake pans and put the cream between them instead of cutting up a bunch of pieces. I haven't tried this recipe yet but that is certainly what I will do.
It was without a doubt one of the easiest recipes to make and I also cut it down to make one pan instead of 4 pans.
Been making this for years. The only difference is that each cake mix will make 24 cupcakes, much less mess than cutting up a 9X13 cake (too crumbly). Just split each cupcake, fill with pudding and frost with frosting from a tub that's been warmed enough to use like ganache.
hi My name is betty k. I made this boston cream pie for my family reunion and every one loved it and the women ask for the reciepe ,I first thought that was alot of pie but it all went beforre the other desert. thanks a bunch.
This is a great recipe!. I always am looking for recipes, especially desserts, that I don't have to experiment with doubling or tripling the quantities.
There are great recipes out there for a chocolate topping. The bottled fudge topping does NOT make this a Bostom Cream Pie/Cake recipe! And for heaven's sake, making a simple pastry filling is far superiour in flavor and texture to a jello type of pudding mix.
