Take it easy P3smom!! This is an interpretation of Boston Creme Pie!! I made it and it was quite good. Had all the elements of the traditional version, with a 'twist.' I changed it up a little by cutting a piece of homemade vanilla cake to fit on top of the cooked pie crust, then topped that with a thick layer of the custard, placed another layer of cake on top then poured On the chocolate. However, the recipe as written sounds delightful and creative. Good job!

Sorry, but this isn't Boston Cream Pie at all. I'm from Boston, born and raised, so I know of where I speak. Boston Cream Pie is actually more cake than pie; it's usually a rich, spongy vanilla cake, filled with pasty cream (similar to a vanilla pudding, which is used in some versions), and topped with either a chocolate glaze or sometimes a rich, thick chocolate frosting.
It's always been one of my favorites. Sorry, Pillsbury, but this just doesn't cut it !!
