TCS: Boston Cream Pie-lets or Deconstructed Boston Cream Pie

Its the 20th of the month and we at 
are nearing the end of our journey with Julie Richardson's
Vintage Cakes
Currently Baking From:

baked our July's Cake

(do give us a visit and remember to click 'Like')

Julie's version of Boston Cream Pie ie -let!

Above: Whipping up 1.5cups cold heavy cream and a reduced amount of the required sugar
Above: after adding in 3 eggs before adding 2 cups sifted cake flour
with 2 tspn baking powder and 1 tspn sea salt
yup - no butter at all
and a couple of us experienced the cake shrinking during baking
hence I did not greased my pan (only bottom lining the square pan)
nor mini moulds
Above: of course the mini cakes came out of the oven 8 mins before the big pan!
below:  no shrinking at the sides!
below: no problems with mini cakes too
below: fill the glasses half with vanilla pudding
sliced off the domes of the mini cakes - turn them upsidedown
(for flat tops)
below: cover with 2 tablespoons of warm chocolate ganache
below: here is larger serving in a glass pot for 2 or 3
Plain or fully assembled? 
Great both ways!

  1. Great job Emily! I love how your mini cakes turned out, love them! and I thought the same thing... this cake is great in and by itself! I couldn't stop eating it plain! LOL!... By the way I did grease my pan (I am stubborn like that, LOL) and thankfully it didn't shrink when cooling! (whew)

  2. Yes Emily, nicely done! I 100% agree this recipe is great assembled or cake eaten plain. Loved everything about it :)

  3. Holy moly! Your cakes are drowning in pudding and I love it! Looks awesome! :)

  4. Beautiful Emily! Your cakes turned out wonderfully. All I need now is a big spoon! Great job! : )

  5. Just mouthwatering...looks delicious!

  6. Boston pielets? Sounds cool! And looks delicious!
    Nearing the end of the bake from this book? How time flies! Which book next? :)

  7. Oh yum Emily... a girl after my own heart! Lots of pudding :) Hazel x
