The Freshman Cook: April 2014

Today I made a Chocolate Boston Cream Pie Trifle! One of my favorite desserts from when I was growing up was a Boston Cream Pie. I was always fascinated with the fact that it was really a cake, but called a pie. Why? No one could tell me. I have since learned that the Boston Cream Pie was originally made in colonial times and the colonists used to bake cakes in pie tins because most people didn’t have cake pans, only pie pans. Makes sense! So, fast forward to 2014. I decided to put a slight twist on the traditional and make my Boston Cream Pie with chocolate cake. Actually, I used a Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake. I transformed the pie into a trifle, making it something a little special, and I think it works. Let me know what you think!
