No, it's not a mistake. This is really the recipe for Quick Boston Cream CAKE, not pie! This cake closes in on the tastes of the original New England favorite, but it's easier...and you can still say you made it yourself!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (4-serving) package instant vanilla pudding and pie filling
  • 1 cup cold milk
  • 1 (13- to 16-ounce) frozen pound cake, thawed
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons water

What to Do

  1. In a medium bowl, with an electric beater on medium speed, beat pudding mix and milk for 1 to 2 minutes, until pudding begins to thicken.
  2. Slice pound cake in half horizontally. Place bottom half of the pound cake on a serving plate and spread pudding evenly over cake. Place top half of cake over pudding.
  3. In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate chips and water. Microwave on high power for 45 to 60 seconds to soften the chocolate; stir until smooth. With a spoon, spread chocolate over top of cake and allow it to drip down the sides. Serve immediately, or cover and chill until ready to serve.


The chocolate chips can also be melted in a saucepan over low heat or in a double boiler over warm water, but stir constantly and watch carefully so the chocolate doesn't burn.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Make it even easier, microwave a tub of store bought chocolate frosting to pourable consistency. It should be easy to cut through once it sets.

use a serrated knife

I made this the other day and was a little disappointed. The topping ended up very hard which made it difficult to cut the cake without squishing it. The pudding came out the sides of the cake. I do love Mr. Food's recipes so I will make again but use a different recipe for the topping.

I would like a look at the finished product too.

....but I love Mr. Food recipes. Thanks so much for keeping it going.

Would you post a picture of the final product?
