Gluten Free Boston Cream Pie

A while ago, I used a package of Bobs Red Mill GF Shortbread Mix. See original post HERE. This time, I used Bobs Red Mill Gluten Free Vanilla Cake Mix to make Boston Cream Pie.

The mix: Wheat Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free. It is a blend of gluten free flours and starches to accommodate diet sensitivities. The only items you need if you intend to use the mix for a simple sheet cake are 3 eggs, 1/2 cup vegetable oil, 1/2 cup of water, and a 1 lb 3 oz package of Bobs Red Mill GF Cake Mix. The instructions to bake the cake are the same as any box mix: Grease 2 9 cake pans. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, add the mix, the oil, the water and beat for another minute. Divide batter between the two pans and bake about 30 minutes. 2 Notes: 1. The batter seemed stickier than my cake batter.

2. The cakes did not brown as nicely as my standard cakes in the oven.

When I recieved the package to try out, B.R.M sent a variety of recipes. Since Im a sucker for a new recipe, I tried the Boston Cream Pie. The result was cake perfection. The filling, boston cream, was divine! The chocolate glaze topping would satisfy any chocoholic.

The custard filling:

  • 3/4 cup milk at room temp.
  • 2 egg yolks, at room temperature
  • 1 TBS buttery spread such as SmartBalance
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Chocolate Glaze

  • 1 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 TBS unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 stick butter spread , melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 TBS water or as needed

Bake it and celebrate how delicious allergen-free can be!

Can You Make Boston Cream Pie Ahead

You can make all the components of this Boston Cream Pie ahead.

The cake layers are adapted from my favorite vanilla cake recipe. Its moist and soft, with a buttery flavor and a delicate texture, and it can be baked up to a few weeks ahead. You can read more about that here: Perfect Vanilla Cake Recipe.

The filling is similar to vanilla pudding, but richer. Its made with egg yolks, milk, vanilla, and cornstarch to help thicken it up. I would definitely recommend making it at least a day ahead, so it has time to chill. You can learn more here: Pastry Cream Filling.

The glaze can be made ahead as well. You can find more info on that here: Chocolate Glaze. Its just 4 simple ingredients, warmed and stirred together until smooth. As it cools, it gets very thick, but it can be re-warmed and drizzled over the Boston Cream Pie after its assembled.

Dont ask me how I know, but I would definitely recommend waiting as long as you can to assemble the cake. If you put it together too far ahead, the exposed filling around the sides will become dry and cracked. Still delicious inside, but not nearly as appetizing to look at!

How To Make Vegan Boston Cream Pie

First, make your vegan vanilla cake layers.

While the cakes are baking, prepare the vegan custard, then chill it in the refrigerator. Once the cakes are done, let them cool completely. You can speed up the process by placing them in the refrigerator.

Take the chilled custard out of the refrigerator and use a mixer to make it smooth again, as it can get clumpy in the refrigerator.

Spread the thick custard onto the first cake layer, then place the other cake on top. Top with chocolate ganache.

Gluten Free Vegan Boston Cream Pie Cupcakes

My husband was made in Haiti, but raised in Boston. Today for his birthday I think the only fitting way to celebrate my Boston boy, is to give him a moist yellow cake, filled with thick, vanilla cream and topped with rich, chocolate buttercreammy riff on the classic Boston Cream Pie, except its gluten free, vegan and allergy friendly. The only problem will be making sure theres still some left when he finally gets home from work!

My husband is super proud of his heritage. He actually runs a Haitian genealogy group to help other Haitians find their family history. And, he has lots of love for his Boston and East Coast upbringing. I have to say that I feel that same pridefor these cupcakes!

Its kind of a miracle that four years before I was born, in Haiti his parents got together. Meanwhile, my parents were newlyweds in Idaho. What are the odds we got together? All I can say is that it was meant to be. That and thanks to BYU for bringing us together.

Ive tried making these before and the cake just wasnt right. I think Ive finally perfected it and made it gluten free vegan to boot.

The cake is moist and almost spongy. I also used to just use a thin Wilton tip to put a puff of cream in it. No more! I scooped out a huge hole and filled these babies full of vanilla pudding. Instead of the typical thin, chocolate ganache I went for thick, rich, chocolate buttercream to compliment the cupcake more.

Happy birthday sweetie!

A Quick Note About The Consistency Of The Chocolate Ganache

Unlike with drip cakes, you dont want your ganache to be very runny for a Boston cream pie. Here, the drips shouldnt be thin or reaching far down the sides of the cake .

Instead, the ganache should be thicker, so that the drips down the sides of the Boston cream pie are shorter and wider, like in the photo below:

For this, you want the ganache to still be runny, yet also thick enough so that it falls off a spatula almost like a waterfall rather than a thin drizzle. Also, when the ganache falls off the spatula back into the bowl, it shouldnt immediately level out and disappear into one chocolate ganache pool instead, it should pile upon itself.

And thats all you really need to know in order to make the most marvellous small batch gluten free Boston cream pie. I really hope youll love it as much as I do its incredibly fun to make, and gosh, its so very delicious.

I confess that I might have tested this recipe more times than was strictly necessary, simply because I wanted to have another taste. Yes, its that good.

Happy baking!

Gluten Free Boston Cream Pie Cupcakes

The perfect combo of sweet vanilla with smooth milk chocolate is what makes these Gluten Free Boston Cream Pie Cupcakes so addictive. A tender vanilla cake filled with vanilla bean pudding and swirled with a sweet chocolate buttercream.

I just want to give a quick shout out to those amazing athletes that just competed in the Boston marathon. I mean, how freaking cool is that???!

Ive had a few friends that have qualified for the Boston marathon over the years, and I cant get over how much pain, dedication, mental and physical exhaustion that goes into preparing for and running this race. Frankly, Id rather run this race in my dreams rather than real life. Does that count?

Let me recap for a minute the one and only marathon Ive ever run. It was 3 years ago in Phoenix. We had just moved into our brand new home and my training was going stellar. My one goal of this marathon was to Boston qualify with my time. I didnt actually want to run the Boston marathon. I just wanted to be able to say that I qualified.

Anyhow, arrogantly I believed Boston was in the bag. Yeah, not so much. Heres how it went:

The race started with a cool rain which felt amazing. I ran the first few miles in a poncho wearing a huge smile on my face. The rain stopped and I stripped off the extra layer. I breezed through the first 13 miles at a 7:45 pace. Then I started to slow a bit to reserve some energy. Feeling great, right???

So I figured this year, its about time I honor him with a homemade, from-scratch version of one of his most beloved desserts.
