Recipe for Non Custard Boston Cream Pie

Category Desserts

Back in the late 60's My mom would shop at Woolworths, and we got treated to a dessert afterwards. I LOVED the Boston Cream pie. It is nothing like todays version, the cream was like whipped topping or something. I was just wondering if anyone out there had the NON-Custard version?

I remember something similar to what you describe. The cake was yellow and more like a light cake rather than sponge cake. The filling was cream NOT custard. And the chocolate glaze was not runny nor was it too thick. It had a sheen to it but did not form a crusty surface. It was more of a milk chocolate than anything else. I loved the flavor. I had searched for years to find its equal without success. I was raised in northeastern Connecticut. That would be the area where I experienced Boston Cream Pie. These days all I can find is the Boston Custard. The difference is huge.


I miss the the cream version. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. Do you remember the taste of a Ring Ding as it was in the 60's? They used to be about the size of a saucer. The icing used to have dimples in the surface where the icing filled in the indents formed when the cream was injected into the cake. It was like getting a few chocolate chips integrated into the ciing. Once Drake's came out with a yellow cake version covered with milk chocolate. I would love to taste one of those again. I would love a recipe for Boston Cream Pie, if one exists. Good luck with your search!

Make a yellow cake mix, use butter instead of oil or make a pound cake. Icing is cocoa, powdered sugar, vanilla and add BOILING water until thick but still runny, pour on cake.
