Default Holiday recipe: Boston Cream Pie

I love to cook, and it has been a fun challenge to come up with foods
that fit my eating plan. So, I'm thinking of starting a recipe column
here. Do an appetizer on Monday, salad on Tuesday, side dish on
Wednesday, entree on Thursday and dessert on Friday, giving a complete
meal a week. Sound interesting?

Anyway, here is a sample. This is my recipe and not one I got out of a
book. See if you can find sugar-free angel food cake, or use thinner
slices of regular cake. I hope you enjoy :-)

Boston Cream Pie

Mix up a package of Jell-O Sugar Free Instant vanilla pudding. Add 1
teaspoon rum flavoring, if desired. Put in refrigerator and chill.

To make each serving, take two thin slices of angel-food cake, no more
than half an inch thick each. Put one slice on a dessert plate and top
with a portion of the prepared pudding (about two tablespoons), spread
slightly. Place the second slice of cake on top and crown with one more
tablespoon of pudding. Sprinkle lightly with unsweetened cocoa powder.

The cake has 16 servings for a standard tube pan. That's not huge, but
it's decent.
Don't forget to 'hang' your angel food cake as soon as it comes out of
the oven, otherwise it will deflate. If your pan doesn't have little
tabs on it to prop it up when you flip it over, put the cake pan
upside-down over a soda or wine bottle.

If you want to lighten the filling for the Boston Cream Pie, fold in
some whipped cream sweetened with the sweetener of your choice. A nice
artificially sweetened Bavarian Cream. A few shakes of cocoa powder in
the mix would go nicely for a touch of chocolate...It's also good to use
in a parfait with some fresh berries.
