    Kaarin's Note:

    This is heavenly! It's completely homemade-2 layer cake with banana custard filling and chocolate glaze. I got this recipe from a friend who got it from the Pillsbury Bake-off. This special dessert takes a little effort but is gorgeous and delectable!!!

      This was good, but we felt like the cake was lacking in something. The custard and bananas were delicious though! I might make again to see if the mistake was mine for the cake's flavor.

      We really enjoyed this cake. The bananas give a great flavor and make it even better. I tried to cover the bananas with the filling because I was worried they would turn brown since I was making it the day before serving. They were perfectly fine! I would suggest that you wait to glaze the cake until the day you plan on serving, as it loses some of its lustre if glazed the day before - but it certainly didn't take away from the great flavor. Thank you Kaarin for this delicious recipe.

      Mmmm, Mmmmm, GOOD!!! We love Boston Cream Pie but I've always been a bit intimidated by the custard - and never wanted to use a box mix. But this was incredibly easy and so, so tasty! It also came out beautifully, with a shiny, crusty glaze. We took pictures, but not in good light and everyone wanted to dig in - so not sure I'll post. But trust me, you need to make this - it's that good! The bananas made it extra special...
