Boston cream cake is a delicate, soft and very tasty cake. It consists of white sponge cake, Patissiere cream and chocolate frosting. Yes! It's very simple, and I didn't think the taste would surprise at first. But from the first bite, the flavors are off the charts. It's just a delightful combination. The cake can be eaten in a few hours - it soaks in very quickly. And if it will stand overnight in the fridge, it just melts on the lips.
In all the sources I found, the cake is covered with chocolate mixed with cream. I made the frosting with added chocolate. I like this kind of frosting, it has the perfect consistency to cover the cake.
I decided to decorate the cake a bit, but that is not necessary at all.
To make the Boston cream cake not seem time consuming, or if you don't have a lot of free time, you can bake the sponge cake and wrap it in foil, and finish the cake the next day.
I highly recommend making this cake, our housemates liked it very much.
