Boston Cream Pie – chocolate cake with a delicate biscuit and chocolate icing. This is one of the greatest creations that has ever appeared in the candy field. Despite the fact that it is often called a pie, many agree that it is still a cake.

It was created by Boston chef M. Sanzian in 1856. He took a French butter biscuit, filled it with custard, brushed it with syrup, and covered it with chocolate. Perhaps this idea came to him from a similar product – Washington Pie (supplemented with jam and sprinkled with powdered sugar, but outwardly it was much thinner than the hero of the occasion).

Delicious taste, perfect structure, mouth-watering appearance – Boston Cream Pie instantly became a hit! In 1996, Massachusetts declared the treat to be its official dessert. If you are planning to travel to the state, be sure to try the pie in the original recipe.

Interesting facts

Amazing Moments:

  • in the classic version, the cake is baked from flour with a reduced gluten content, so the biscuits are as light and airy as possible;
  • In 2010, Southern New Hampshire University students made the biggest cake ever! Its dimensions differed in scope: 1,5 feet high, 10 feet wide;
  • the name “pie” comes from the fact that pie molds were common in the 19th century. The first dessert, perhaps, was prepared in them.

How to celebrate

Ideal – to go to the homeland of the pie and enjoy its real taste! It doesn’t matter if there is no way, because you can cook it yourself: believe me, it’s not difficult, the ingredients here are the simplest. Connect loved ones to the process, it’s more fun!
