Boston Cream Pie

When I was younger, every time I went to visit my Grandma Smith, we would make a Boston Cream Pie.  I can’t believe there isn’t a legit Boston Cream Pie on my blog already.  My niece and her fiancee came over last night for dinner so I made this beauty for dessert.  It was divine and made me think about my grandma.

chocolate glaze

1 (1 oz) square unsweetened baking chocolate, coarsely chopped

1 tablespoon butter

3/4 cup powdered sugar

2 tablespoons milk

1  For the cake, bake cake according to package directions for two round layers.  Let cake layers cool completely.

2  For the filling, whisk together milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes then fold in whipped cream.  Let stand for 5 minutes.  Place one cake layer on serving platter, spread filling evenly over layer then top with remaining cake layer.

3  For the glaze, microwave chocolate and butter on high for 1 minute, stir until chocolate is melted.  Add powdered sugar and milk and mix until smooth.  Spread over top of cake.  Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.
