For some reason Boston Cream Pie just says SUMMER to me. And that’s fine, when I can buy it at my local Safeway because there’s no way I’ll be turning on the oven during an Arizona summer!
And who has time to make the cream filling and the chocolate ganache topping?! Not me!
But what to do when Safeway doesn’t have Boston Cream Pies in their bakery? This is a super-easy Boston Cream Pie recipe that doesn’t even require pre-heating!
- Pound cake (defrosted and sliced)
- Jell-o chocolate pudding cup
- Strawberries (optional)
Take a thick slice of pound cake and top with some of the Jell-o pudding cup. I got three cake slices from one pudding cup. Top with Cool-Whip and garnish with a strawberry.
(And you didn’t even have to turn on the oven! Perfect for outdoor cooking!)
