Boston Yogurt-Cream Pie (Gluten Free)

Made with gluten free cake mix, this easy BCP version rocks with a yogurt center and luscious fudge topping.

Ingredients

1
package (15 oz.) Betty Crocker™ Gluten Free yellow cake mix
3
cartons (6 oz.) Yoplait® Light Boston cream pie yogurt
1
envelope gluten-free unflavored gelatin* (1 of 4 in a 1 oz. package)
1
gluten-free hot fudge (11.75 oz.) ice cream topping*
1/4
cup gluten-free white chocolate chips* (for decoration, if desired)

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350° F. Prepare 9 inch round cake pan with floured baking spray. Prepare cake batter according to package direction. Bake cake as directed.
  • 2 While cake is baking, pour yogurt into a small bowl. Add gelatin and whisk to incorporate thoroughly. Cover yogurt mixture and refrigerate.
  • 3 When cake is done, remove it from the pan and set on a cooling rack until completely cooled. With a sharp serrated knife (like a bread knife), cut cake in half horizontally to make two layers. Place the bottom layer on a cake plate with inside of cake face up.
  • 4 Spread yogurt mixture over bottom cake layer. (Use just enough to make a good layer, but not so much that it overflows the sides.) Place top cake layer over the yogurt, with inside of cake face down. Spoon hot fudge topping over top, spreading just to the edge of the cake.
  • 5 For garnish (optional), heat 1/4 cup white chocolate baking chips in a small microwave-safe bowl for 30 seconds. Remove and stir until smooth. (Return to microwave for a few more seconds, if necessary, until chips can be stirred smooth and are drizzling consistency.) Drizzle over hot fudge layer.
  • 6 Refrigerate cake one hour and slice with a sharp knife.

Boston Yogurt-Cream Pie

As prepared by tbspSusan,

Why's it called pie when it's really cake? Who knows. But if you're a Boston Cream Pie fan, you don't care what it's called. You just want to stuff it in your face.


How about making a Boston Cream Pie the easy way -- with a bunch of stuff you can grab off the shelf at the grocery store and throw together fast? And what if, instead of sinful custard filling, you used creamy yogurt instead?

I just may have invented a better mousetrap ... especially for anybody with a gluten-free sweet tooth.


Yogurt Filled Boston Cream Pie Recipe
Introducing the Boston Yogurt-Cream Pie, and here's how it's made:


Betty Crocker Gluten Free Cake Mix
Start with a Betty Crocker Gluten Free Yellow Cake Mix and bake it in a 9" round cake pan. Just follow the instructions on the box. Piece-a-cake.

Why gluten free cake mix? It makes a single round cake that's just the size and density that resembles made-from-scratch sponge cake. And, duh, it's gluten free.


Boston Cream Pie Yogurt
While the cake bakes, get out 3 cartons of Yoplait Light Boston Cream Pie flavor and put them in a small bowl. Ha! Killed those cartons!


Pouring Dry Gelatin Over Yogurt
Add one envelope of unflavored gelatin to the bowl of yogurt and have your whisk on standby...

 

Whisking Gelatin and Yogurt
The gelatin will thicken the yogurt just a tad without changing the flavor. Stir it up right away so the gelatin doesn't gel up and get lumpy. Cover and refrigerate it the yogurt stuff.


Boston Cream Pie Bottom Layer
When the cake is totally cool (and I mean not warm AT ALL), cut it in half so you have 2 thin round layers. I used a big ol' serrated bread knife to get 'er done. Place the bottom half on a cake plate.


Boston Cream Pie Middle Layer
Cover the bottom half with the yogurt filling, spreading it just to the edges.


Betty Crocker Gluten Free Cake Mix
Set the other half of the cake on top.


Chocolate Topping on Bostom Cream Pie
Spread hot-fudge ice cream topping straight from the jar (not heated) over the top, but keep it all up on top and not dripping down the sides. I got kinda thickish fudge topping that said "gluten free" on the label -- that stuff was at serious risk of not making it to the cake.


Finished Boston Cream Pie with Yogurt Filling
If you wanna get all fancy-schmancy like I did, melt 1/4 cup white chocolate chips in the micro a few secs and drizzle that over the top. You don't need to do this, but trust me -- this is biggo bang for the extra two minutes.


Slice of Bostom Cream Pie
Chill an hour in the fridge, then cut slices with a sharp knife.


Bite of Boston Cream Pie
And there is just nothing more to say except -- chow down!
