Boston Cream Pie has always been Hubby's favorite dessert. I used to make it from scratch using the original recipe, but it took so long that I would only make it on special occassions.
And even though I still make it for him on his special days, like his recent birthday celebration, now I use this very easy version.
He hasn't been able to tell the difference, and it is oh, so delicious!
To begin, simply bake and cool a two layer yellow cake from a cake mix. I used a 'Super Moist' version.
To make the filling, add:
1-1/2 cups cold half-and-half cream to 1 pkg. (3.4 oz) instant vanilla pudding mix and whisk together. Let stand for 5 minutes.
Use this as the filling between the cake layers.
To make the chocolate glaze for the top:
3/4 cup confectioner's sugar
2 Tbsp baking cocoa
4-5 teaspoons hot water
(I doubled this to make it extra thick on top)
Then just drizzle this on top, letting it drip down the sides.
Such an easy way to make someone happy!
