This is the last recipe that I tried from this cookbook.  I chose it because I LOVE Boston Cream Pie and the cake in this recipe is from scratch which I like so much better than a mix.  I think you could make the cream from scratch as well instead of using pudding mix.  All in all, it’s a delicious recipe!

Boston Cream Pie
Submitted by Flo Burnett, Gage, OK

5 eggs, separated
1 cup sugar, divided
1 1/2 tsp lemon zest
4 1/2 tsps fresh lemon juice
2 tbsps water
1 cup cake flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
3.4 oz pkg cook & serve vanilla pudding mix
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/8 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp butter
2 (1 oz) sqs unsweetened baking chocolate
1 to 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

In a large bowl, beat together egg yolks and 1/2 cup sugar. In a separate bowl, whisk together zest, juice, and water. Gradually beat zest mixture into yolk mixture until fluffy. Fold in flour until completely blended. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites, salt and cream of tartar with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Beat remaining sugar into egg whites until combined. Gently fold egg white mixture into yolk mixture until fully combined. Divide batter between 2 lightly greased 9 inch round cake pans. Bake at 350º for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely on wire racks.

Meanwhile, prepare pudding mix according to package directions using milk. Refrigerate until well chilled; fold in whipping cream and vanilla. Set aside.

Melt butter and chocolate in a double boiler (I used the microwave). Remove from heat; whisk in powdered sugar until smooth.

Assembly: Place one cake layer on a cake plate. Spread with all the pudding filling. Top filling with the remaining cake layer. Pour chocolate mixture over the top and spread to cover top of cake.

Makes 8 to 10 servings.

  1. My hubby loves this dessert and requests it for his birthday every year. I love that it uses 2 cake layers instead of just one layer that’s been split. This recipe looks great. Thanks!

  2. Would love that cookbook
