First occurrence:
According to the owners of theĀ Parker House HotelĀ inĀ Boston,
the Boston cream pie was first created at the hotel by
renowned French chef Augustine Francois Anezin in 1856.

Back then, the creation was simply called
ā€œChocolate Cream Pieā€.
TheĀ ā€˜Chocolate Cream Pieā€™Ā was a variation on the
ā€˜American Pudding-Cake Pieā€™Ā andĀ ā€˜Washington Pieā€™.

This pastry was eventually renamed the ā€˜Boston Cream Pieā€™
to reflect where it came from.

The first mention of itā€™s first nameĀ ā€˜Chocolate Cream Pieā€™
was in the 1872Ā ā€œMethodist Almanacā€.
Back then, chocolate frosting was not as widely used as it is now.
Using this much chocolate in a dessert was considered
amazingly decadent.
