Did you ever make something so drippy and tempting that you knew you weren't going to eat?

Boston Cream. I love Boston Cream...anything.

I made this ooey, gooey cake over two days...blood, sweat, and tears...and then had to say goodbye.

(Actually pretty easy to make, tho the tears part is true--I knew there was an impending separation.)

I did get to lick the bowl, so it wasn't a total loss.

This other one was yogurty goodness. I can't take credit for it. I did make it...but Chelcie (my sis-n-law) introduced is and told me how to make it.

Yogurt. Whipped Cream. Pie Crust. Badda bing. Badda boom.

So cheap, so simple, so good.


  1. I think I would have to give the boston cream pie away or risk eating the whole thing myself. I think my stomach growled when I saw the pictures.

    I'm thinking of writing "Bite Me" on the pinewood derby cake next week and then walking out. What do you think?

  2. I just noticed that I did a lot of "thinking" in that last post. I THINK I need to consult a Thesaurus.

  3. Hehehe...that made me laugh. What else could you say without sounding pompous?

    You have to take a picture of the derby cake.

  4. Um, how do we work it out so that that Boston cream cake is in my tummy?

  5. That looks really good.

    I want it. Is there a recipe? For the cake, I mean. The pie looks easy enough.

  6. Max, just think about it in your tummy. That's what I did and I saved a couple thousand calories. Just not the same for some reason.

    Dan, I added a link to the recipe in the post. I meant to do that before.

  7. If anyone does try to make it...two things...

    1. Don't wait till the custard/pudding comes to a full boil like it says. Stop cooking when it gets really thick but not boiling. Trust me.

    2. Don't over bake the cake part. Keep a good watch and take it out precisely when the toothpick comes out pretty clean.

    ...despite the longness of the recipe, it's actually pretty easy.
