Boston Cream Icebox Cake – A no bake eclair cake recipe that tastes like a creamy and decadent cross between Boston cream pie and a chocolate eclair.
You might already be aware that a Boston Cream Pie is not a pie, but a cake (a very, very famous and delicious one at that). And, funnily enough, this icebox cake is neither a cake nor a pie although the name of the recipe includes both. An icebox cake is traditionally a refrigerated, no-bake dessert made up of some variety of cookies/wafers/crackers layered with whipped cream or pudding.
During refrigeration, the cookies soak up the moisture from the filling, making a lovely presentation when sliced. It appears to be a very fancy and complicated dessert… ah, looks can be deceiving!
Boston Cream Pie Icebox Cake – all the flavors of the infamous Boston Cream Pie in a quick and easy icebox cake. Great for those hot days when you don’t want to turn on the oven, or when you just don’t want to do all the work!
