For everyone who entered the giveaway, thank you! I read every single comment and love hearing your feedback. I had a lot of comments from you saying that you were new cooks just starting out in the kitchen. This Boston Cream Pie is the perfect dessert for you because it’s a semi-homemade dessert that looks impressive but really is a cinch. Usually I think from scratch recipes taste way better than the semi-homemade option but this is one of those that you really cannot tell the difference. Creamy custard mix is sandwiched between fluffy cake layers and topped with a decadent chocolate sauce.
This dessert comes from my friend Bridian who shares the same love for food and baking that I do. When I first moved to Florida I had just my oldest son and had never used a babysitter besides my family. I was super anxious when my husband had a work function and I needed a sitter. Bridian came to my rescue. She was 14 years old at the time but was used to tending and cooking for her family of eight. I called her probably five times to check on him in the two hours we were gone but of course, he was fine.
Seven years later, Bridian’s off experiencing college life. We’ve recently been bonded by some of the same life experiences. She has quite the story. I love reading about her college life and all night baking escapades here. She’s one of those people that just has a way with words and I can’t stop reading. Thanks Bridian for this recipe.
Yes, it tastes as good as it looks.
