3/4 c. Unsalted, butter, softened
1 1/4 c. Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
2 lrg Large eggs
2 c. Cake flour, (not self-rising
2 1/2 tsp Double-acting baking pwdr
1/2 tsp Salt
3/4 c. Lowfat milk
3 Tbsp. Cornstarch
1/3 c. Sugar
1 c. Lowfat milk
3 lrg Large eggs
1/2 c. Heavy cream
1/4 tsp Salt
1 x Vanilla bean, split lengthwise
3 Tbsp. Unsalted butter
6 ounce Bittersweet chocolate(not unsweetened), br
3 Tbsp. Water
2 Tbsp. Unsalted butter
1 1/2 Tbsp. Light corn syrup
1/4 tsp Salt


Make the cake: Preheat the oven to 350 F. and butter and flour a 9 1/2-inch springform pan. In a bowl with an electric mixer cream together the butter, the sugar, and the vanilla till the mix is light and fluffy and beat in the Large eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Into another bowl sift together the flour, the baking pwdr, and the salt and beat the mix into the butter mix in batches alternately with the lowfat milk, beginning and ending with the flour mix. Pour the batter into the prepared springform pan and bake the cake in the middle of the oven for 50 to 55 min, or possibly till a tester comes out clean. Let the cake cold in the pan on a rack. Make the custard: In a saucepan whisk together the cornstarch, the sugar, and the lowfat milk, add in the Large eggs, the cream, and the salt, and whisk the mix till it is smooth. Scrape the seeds from the vanilla bean, reserving the pod for another use, add in them to the cream mix, and bring the custard to a boil over moderate heat, whisking constantly. Boil the custard, whisking, for 2 min, remove the pan from the heat, and whisk in the butter. Let the custard cold completely, whisking occasionally. Make the glaze: In a metal bowl set over a saucepan of barely simmering water heat the chocolate with the water, the butter, the corn syrup, and the salt, stirring till glaze is smooth, and remove the bowl from the pan. Remove the cake from the pan, halve it horizontally with a long serrated knife, and arrange the bottom half, cut side up, on a plate. Top the bottom half with the custard, spreading the custard to the edge, put the remaining cake half, cut side down, on the custard, and pour the glaze on top of it, spreading the glaze to the edge and letting it drip down the side. The Boston cream pie may be made 1 day in advance and kept covered loosely and chilled. Garnish the pie with the fruit and the blossoms
