Today, I saw several recipes for Boston Cream Pies, and I thought how can I make this individual, because my husband much to my dismay, loves those individual Boston Cream Pie, in the little tins sold at Walmart….. I make dessert every week and he still buys store made desserts, I know it pains me. So anyway….I had an inspiration to a make pound cake from this recipe and then I took a shortcut and made instant pudding for the layers in Boston Cream Pie and homemade whip cream on top! It’s a nice cool dessert for hot times!
First I made the pound cake and while that was baking I made the instant pudding and after I mixed it I poured the chocolate and vanilla pudding into Ziploc baggie and popped them into the frig. I lined the pan with foil to make easier to pop it out of the pan when it was done baking, so its easier to cut the circles out to put in your jars.
When the pound cake came out of the oven, I let it cool on the counter, then popped it in to the frig, meanwhile, put a bowl with the beaters to your mixer in the frig to get nice and cold.
When the cake has gotten cold, take a lid to one of your jars and cut circles out of your cake, then take the circles and cut them in half
Pop one half of your cake round into the bottom of your jar, then cut off the corner of your vanilla pudding baggie and top the cake in your jar ( the pudding is a little thick, but not too thick to pipe into your jar) then top with the other half of your cake
and cut off the corner of your chocolate pudding baggie and top your cake
Meanwhile, you have a veggie quesadilla sizzling the pan next to this little creation, irony is not lost on me!
Pop them in the frig for a few minutes, make your whip cream from this recipe and pipe on top of the chocolate layer, eat a veggie quesadilla and tell yourself you deserve dessert cause you sacrificed and had an all veggie dinner!
