Boston Cream Pie Trifle

Ohhh my. This Boston Cream Pie Trifle is SO good! And it can be made and finished within an hour – who doesn’t love that?

Boston Cream Donuts are at the top of my husband’s list when it comes to my dessert recipes, but I try to limit deep-fried desserts to special occasions. I decided I should try to experiment in the kitchen to find a different treat with similar flavors.

After playing around a little bit, and allowing my son to lick the spoon a lot, I turned those tasty donuts into a super easy Boston Cream Pie Trifle with yellow cake and I’m so thankful that I did!

My favorite thing about this deconstructed cake is that it looks so elegant and difficult to make, but it doesn’t take much time or effort at all. It’s a great option for dinner parties or for friends who just need a little love (and sugar) in their lives!

As a momma of two kids under three, I’ll take all of the time-saving steps I can. I went the easy route with this amazing Boston Cream Pie Trifle and used a boxed cake mix and French Vanilla Instant Pudding! You’re welcome to make it all homemade if you prefer! Maybe one day I’ll find time for that again. 😉
