Two layers of fluffy vanilla cake, a thick layer of creamy custard and an easy chocolate ganache topping make this Vegan Boston Cream Pie absolutely irresistible!
Okay, guys. This is another one of those recipes that I am thoroughly excited about. Like, thoroughly. This recipe has officially made it onto my absolute favorites list. Never have I ever tried a Boston Cream Pie, even in my pre-vegan era, but now I am hooked. I have definitely had my fair share of boston cream donuts, sure, but a pie? A pie that is actually a cake? NEVER!
When I decided I wanted a little something Boston Cream Donut-esque, I discovered the world of Boston Cream Pie. And upon realizing these “pies” are actually “cakes”, I became intrigued! How could a giant cake version of a Boston Cream Donut disappoint? It can’t. It just can’t.
This recipe is just so, freaking, delicious. AND, really easy. Each component is relatively simple to make, then all ya’ gotta do is slap them all together! And BAM, you have yourself a deliciously VEGAN Boston Cream Pie! Das it! And the fact that it’s vegan is completely undetectable. In fact, this has recieved the stamp of approval of tasting BETTER than the classic dairy laden version. WIN!
The layers of cake are soft, fluffy, and so perfectly hinted with vanilla I could eat just the cake by itself and be perfectly content. Add in the smooth, sweet vanilla custard, and throw some rich chocolate on top and you have got a WHOLE lot of deliciousness. I am so obsessed with this stuff!
Something about this pie/cake makes me feel like it’s just perfect for summer. I know I’ve been saying that for all my recipes lately, and this is no exception! I think it’s the lack of heavy frosting. The cool and light consistency of the custard and the non-heavy chocolate makes this a perfect dessert for a warm summer night.. just sayin’!
I definitely recommend this to any Boston Cream fan out there. You won’t regret it!
