Boston Cream Pie

Posted by -Cindy

I love Boston Cream pie, but not this version! I must have the kiss of death on recipes! Maybe it's me, maybe it's my oven, I don't know. This is another disappointing recipe. I used the recipe from the Hershey 's website. This chocolate topping was too thin & grainy. The cake was so-so. I thought the crumb was coarse.

I made mine in a small tube pan because my cakes have a tendency to sink in the middle & I wanted to avoid that. After splitting the cake in half, I dug out a small trench to hold the pastry cream so it wouldn't ooze out the sides. That idea turned out well.

Over all, this was a disappointing recipe that I wouldn't make again. I've had better from Publix super market.

P.S. I just tried a slice this morning after the cake had been sitting over night in the fridge. It was much better, almost good. The chocolate topping was stilling disappointing. Ganache would have been so much better.
