Boston Cream Pie: A Recipe Both Chocolate Lovers & Vanilla Lovers Can Agree On

Boston cream pie was a staple at my grandma and grandpa’s house. Why? Because my grandma could make it fairly quickly to feed whoever came over on Sundays – and it tasted like she worked for hours on it. Boston cream pie is one of my favorites because it brings back great childhood memories, and it is simplicity at its finest. Cake. Vanilla pudding. Chocolate. Done. 

Fun fact: Boston cream pie is the official dessert of Massachusetts, and it was declared in December of 1996. Red Sox fans, consider serving one at your World Series party (first game is tonight!). 

You'll need:

  • 1 yellow cake mix, baked per packages directions for a round cake and cut in half

Filling

  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups Cool Whip
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla 

Glaze

  • 1 square unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Whisk the pudding mix and milk together until thickened, about 2 minutes. Fold in Cool Whip and vanilla.
  2. Place one half of the cake on serving platter. Spread on the pudding filling. Top with the other half of the cake.
  3. Put the butter and chocolate into a microwave-safe bowl and cook on high for 1 minute until melted. Add the sugar and milk. Stir to form a glaze. Spread over the cake. Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.
