This was a moist, two layer chocolate cake that they served at the school cafeterias where I grew up.
Yeah, I know, not exactly haute cuisine, but still.
It had a fudge-like frosting and a white cream (not pudding-ey) filling.
They called it "Boston cream pie" on the menu but clearly it was nothing like a Boston cream pie, which is yellow pound cake with a custard or pudding-like filling and dribbled glaze rather than a frosting.
My guess is, given that it was a school cafeteria after all, that the white cream filling was most likely Crisco based. It was very dense.
The chocolate cake was not like regular cake it was denser? But not heavy. Fine crumb? Not as crumbly as a regular chocolate cake.
Anybody have any ideas for a recipe?
