Boston Cream Pie
Not only to celebrate turning another year older but also to celebrate having run my fastest marathon so far, I made a Boston Cream Pie for Sunday Family Dinner.
I mostly followed the Boston Cream Pie instructions from Shirley O. Corriher's book Bakewise. However, she torts the cake into three layers, while I went with the traditional two. Also, I made a half recipe of Rose Levy Beranbaum's crème pâtissière, instead of Ms. Corriher's.
To be honest, this is not my kind of thing. Hello? Where's the lemon? Where's the ginger? But it seemed like the right thing to do, and I suspect everyone else will love it.
