Boston Cream Pie-let for Secret Recipe Club



I have mixed feelings about this month's recipe for our monthly post for The Cake Slice Bakers.
The cake for this month is Boston Cream Pie-lets-Page 53
 from the book Vintage Cakes from Julie Richardson. 


See, this recipe is not a pie, is actually a cake-very good I have to say- fill with vanilla pudding and topped with a rich chocolate ganache.  

I love ganache and I also love pudding, but I do not really like to eat pudding as filling in a cake, some how I feel it in my mouth too wet ( yes, weird)

The  recipe in the book has been redesigned to make small individual cakes which can be served in pudding cups or even mason jars. I baked 3 small 4" round cakes and make one tall little cake.



I am excited to try next's month recipe. I can't tell you what it is, but I know it will be a hit!

You did an amazing job! Loved it! not as much pudding, I see... you stayed on the safe side of what you like... and that's smart :P ... I must tell you that if you make the cakes thin enough (like in the recipe) and use "all that pudding" it all becomes "one" so you don't get a weird feeling... (I think) ... I loved it! :) So exciting to see you bake with us!

Oh my! I think I like your little cake more than the pie-lets. This is way too cute and sweet looking :) Great job!

Hi Kathia! And I had mixed feelings about this cake as well. I felt that it was more of a pudding than a cake. And I guess I was hoping for more of the original! Yours turned out beautifully. Perfect layers and it looks so good!

Kathia,
Love your adaptation of our July's recipe. It worked!

I'm with Becca... mini cakes instead of pie-lets. Great idea Kathia. Hazel x

I am glad that you were able to come up with a good compromise for this months recipe. It certainly looks yummy.

I love the mini cakes idea!! And it looked soo pretty. I also am not a big fan of pudding with my cake, but glad you gave it a try. Your pictures are gorgeous too!
