So I had the family over for Easter. Decided to take the easy road and grill burgers. That gave me all day Saturday to try out this Boston Creme Pie recipe that I found in March/April issue of Cook's Illustrated. I love this publication (I hesitate to call it a magazine as there is no advertising). Everything I've made from it has always turned out great.
I started early Saturday morning making the creme filling, giving it plenty of time to chill and set. I then made the cake and after that cooled, I made the chocolate glaze.
It didn't take me too long to figure out that something wasn't right as the creme filling oozed out on all sides leaving the cake a lop-sided mess. I didn't even bother putting on the chocolate glaze as that would have only made the mess worse.
My family was very gracious and ate some of it anyway. I just heated up the glazed and used it like a chocolate sauce.
I seriously think I would have been better off making a yellow cake mix with vanilla pudding and then use the glaze...which was the only part of the recipe that turned out properly.
The Stinker was home for the week-end and I actually got a photo of him with his GMa. (He had a good laugh watching me put the cake together.)
And finally...proof that Luke the wonder baby, actually does cry. It was a surprise to me.
It was a great Easter, but I won't be making a Boston Creme Pie any time soon.
