The problem was, I wasn't feeling great and didn't want to spend the hours required to make it. Every recipe I looked at seemed so complicated. . . bake the sponge cake, make the pastry cream, then the ganache.
On a whim, I created a 'cheater' recipe for Boston Cream Pie cupcakes. I have to say....they weren't too bad. I simply made some Jiffy yellow cake from a box, made some french vanilla pudding and made some easy ganache with chocolate chips, heavy cream and a tiny bit of butter.
How cute are these!?!?
So, they were good, and they fed the fix.....temporarily. But I wanted real Boston Cream Pie. I stopped obsessing about it (this was my migraine week) but it didn't go away.
The next weekend I went to the mediation/yoga retreat and came home to the best guy and kid a gal could have....and the REAL Boston Cream Pie they made for me!!
It was wonderful!!!
How sweet are they?!?!?!
