Washington Cream Pie
How appropriate that such a stately cake is named after the first president of the United States.
Why This Recipe Works
Similar to Boston Cream Pie, Washington Cream Pie is a tender white cake filled with custard and topped with rich chocolate icing. But unlike its cousin, we further enhanced it with layers of raspberry jam. For the cake, we found stacking four individual cake layers was too thick. So we opted instead to use two and cut them in half.
