Boston Creme Pie Recipe
Okay - I am pretty proud of this one! Look at it - it's perfect! And I usually am not so great at baking *translation - I have trouble "following" recipes - I like to wing it - that doesn't work great when baking.
Anyways, it's a friends birthday tomorrow so I decided he should have a cake, so here is the easy recipe.
1- 9" yellow cake the cake mix I had made 2,but my mom claims there is a box that makes just 1
1 small box of ready to serve vanilla pudding
1-1/2 cups thawed whipped cream
1 cup milk
1 square UNSWEETENED baking chocolate - yes the gross by itself flavor
1 tablespoon butter
3/4 cup powdered sugar
First I had to bake my cake - just go according to your box
Once cake is cooled, use a serrated knife to cut it in half
Mix your pudding mix & 1 cup milk, then stir in the whipped cream, let sit for 5 minutes
Spread pudding mix on the bottom layer of the cake, put the top on
In a small bowl put the chocolate square & tablespoon of butter in the micro for 1 minute
Stir until chocolate has melted, then mix in the powdered sugar - mix WELL
Pour chocolate over the top & pop in the fridge for at least an hour.
