Boston Cream Pie Recipe


3 eggs, beaten
1 cup white sugar
1 full cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 TBS milk

custard, recipe below
chocolate glaze, recipe below
homemade whipped cream, for garnish

PREHEAT oven to 375 degrees. Grease and flour two 9 inch cake pans.

Mix first five ingredients together and mix well. Place into prepared cake pans and bake for 25 minutes. Cool and slice crosswise (horizontal) through the center of the cakes. Place custard between slices. Top with chocolate glaze and whipped cream. Yum.

Homemade Custard

2 cups milk
2 eggs
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 TBS butter
1/2 tsp vanilla

Bring milk to boiling point. Meanwhile, break eggs into bowl and add sugar that was mixed together with the flour. Stir mixture into hot milk as it begins to boil. Add butter and whisk until thickened. Remove from heat and fold in vanilla. Cool.

Chocolate Glaze

3/4 cup semisweet (or bittersweet) chocolate chips
3 TBS butter
1 TBS corn syrup
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

In a double boiler over simmering water, combine chocolate chips, butter and corn syrup. Stir until chips are melted and mixture is smooth, then add vanilla. Spread warm glaze over top of cake, letting it drizzle down the sides.

You may make the glaze in the microwave using a Pyrex glass measuring cup, at 45 seconds for the chocolate chips, butter and corn syrup, stirring until smooth then adding the vanilla. Tip: spray the measuring spoon with non-stick spray before measuring the corn syrup and it will slide right out. No mess...
