Boston Cream Pie

post #1 of 5

I'm looking for a good boston cream pie recipe. I've tried one already but it wasn't as moist as I wanted it to be. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

I have a quick recipe for one. Make one regular two layer yellow cake as per box directions, bake and cool cake. Take one 8 oz package of vanilla jello instant pudding mix and make as directed on box spread the pudding between the two layers, melt 1 16 oz can chocolate frosting in microwave for about 1 minute then pour over cake let cool and refrigerate. Not the original but quick and I have gotten rave reviews for this one. But I am sure someone has a more original recipe.

One of my old restaurants sold a LOT of Boston Cream Pie. The words "Boston" and Seafood" were in the name of the place. :lol:

We made them each morning, along with the other deserts. Standard yellow cake recipe, and the following for the filling. I used a pretty standard chocolate frosting on top.

1/3 cup sugar
3 tbls cornstarch
1/4 tsp salt
2 egg yolks
2 cups scalded milk
2 tbls butter
1 tsp vanilla

Combine sugar, cornstarch adn salt. Add the beaten egg yolks, and mix well. Slowly add a little of the scalded milk to the mixed ingredients. Blend well, and add back to the remaining scalded milk. Cook over boiling water, stiring constantly , until the mixture thickens. Remove from heat, add the butter and stir until the butter melts. Cool to room temp, and whisk in the vanilla.
