Boston Cream Pie I
November 26, 2007

I also cheated with cake mix LOL. I had some problems with the other parts of this recipe that more experienced cooks perhaps avoided. The filling went wrong somewhere around the "whisk in the 2 eggs" part, that apparently wasn't enough to completely mix all the ingredients although it looked uniform; if I was to do it over again I'd beat the eggs with the salt until completely homogenized before adding to the other ingredients. I had to bail out to boxed pudding. The ganache (icing) went wrong at the add 1/4 cup conf. sugar and beat vigorously part; this resulted in a somewhat lumpy and grainy texture that no amount of beating would fix. If I was to do it over I'd maybe sift it in a little at a time or I'm told that corn syrup is good for this kind of icing. The flavor was great though, dark and rich but sweet enough. All in all people enjoyed it and I'll probably try it again, watch out for those tricky spots though.
