United Cakes of America: Boston Cream Pie

I first discovered this book at Barnes and Noble.  I loved the idea.  This book takes a state by state look at the cakes (and other sweets) each state is known for.  There is also some history given about the recipes, and how they relate to their states. Plus, it is written by Warren Brown, who hosts Sugar Rush on the Food Network.   I immediately looked it up on amazon, and ordered it right away (a girl has to save a few bucks when she can). 
Can be purchased here.  I am in no way affiliated.
 Boston cream pie is one of my favorite desserts, so I knew that is where I needed to start.  Unfortunately, what I didn't consider was 1) I didn't have the permission to reprint this recipe on my blog and 2) no one else had tried to do it either, so there wasn't another blog I could point my readers to for the recipe (believe me, I searched the heck out of the internet for it).  So, I am going to link you to a similar recipe here.   Sorry about that.  I haven't been in this situation before.  If you have, please let me know how you handled it.  



  



Happy Blogoversary to me!  (I get to celebrate all week, right?)

Happy Anniversary. This looks so good. It doesn't matter what recipe you use. I thought if you changed a recipe a little, you made it yours.In other words if you tweak it you can print it as yours.
