This is actually a cake--a chocolate version of Boston Cream Pie, I created for our daughter-in-law: sure to please any chocoholic!! SO INEXPENSIVE AND EASY TO MAKE!! Layers of rich chocolaty cake, with chocolate pudding in between, covered entirely in Chocolate Fudge Glaze. Delightful, cool way to end a summer meal.

I really like the idea of having pudding in the middle of the cake but i took a different glaze as 1lb of powdered sugar seemed a lot to me! It tasted lovely but I found that the cake was a bit too dry...maybe i overcooked it...Its definitely worth making though!!!
