Boston Cream Pie

This classic dessert is in fact a cake layered with custard and topped with chocolate glaze, so don’t let the name fool you! 
A Boston cream pie is a cake with a cream filling. The dessert acquired its name when cakes and pies were cooked in the same pans, and the words were used interchangeably. In the late 19th century, this type of cake was variously called a “cream pie”, a “chocolate cream pie”, or a “custard cake”.

What I love about pies is that you can play around with the flavors, and these are filled with mouthwatering chicken peri-peri filling. Kick it up a notch or two with hot pepper to suit your own taste buds.
