Grandma-Approved Boston Cream Pie Recipe: The Easiest Boston Cream Pie Recipe Ever

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.
