This homemade boston cream pie recipe is probably one of the most requested, most loved desserts in my family. The cake itself is my favorite yellow cake, and it couldn’t be easier to make!
Boston cream pie is my dad’s favorite dessert, and growing up he always asked for it for his birthday. When I was old enough to bake, I gladly took over the cake making responsibilities, and made this cake for his birthday and father’s day every year. Last year, I made parfaits instead and came up with my own boston cream pie recipe. I don’t know if it was the change in the recipe, or if parfaits are just more fun to eat, but everyone was raving over them! After sitting on this recipe for a year, I figured it was time to finally share these parfaits with you!
The cake is light, and moist, and the subtle hint of almond makes it really special. The custard is smooth, and rich, and I added a touch of almond there too, along with the vanilla, and it is absolutely divine! Then there’s the ganache. Need I say more??
