Boston Cream Pie

It’s no secret that I’m a big cake lover. Give me just about any type and I’ll have it. I may have some reluctance when it comes to carrot cake, but that’s only because I’m very picky about that one (more on that in another post). Other cakes-nope. It’s all about what I’m in the mood for.

Of course, my mind drifted to chocolate – always. But chocolate these days seems to be taking a back seat (more on that in another post as well). With that in mind, I went for a classic. This Boston Cream Pie fit the bill—uncomplicated, rich in vanilla with the pastry cream, and perfect in texture—bodied, but not heavy; light but not airy.  Of course I did give it a chocolate ganache vs. a chocolate glaze – for an added chocolate richness. I figured small bites of chocolate like that would be tolerable.

I was right. The cake was all I had hoped it to be and the ganache was the perfect top off.

Lastly, and as always, if I can please–if you are going to pin any of the images please do so from Better Homes and Gardens and not here, since the recipes reside over there. Thanks!
