Boston cream pie was invented at the Parker House hotel in 1855 when the kitchen’s French chef put a thick ribbon of custard between two layers of sponge cake and topped them with a chocolate glaze. It originally was known as Parker House chocolate pie, and was in fact a variation of a dessert called pudding cake, which dates back to Colonial times. No one can say how it got to be called a pie – it is most definitely a cake – but a logical explanation would be that it almost always is cut into triangular wedges like pie. In 1996, Boston cream pie was named Massachusetts’ official dessert.
