Boston Cream Cupcakes

Boston Cream Cupcakes feature everything you love about your favorite pie all in one fluffy homemade cupcake! Soft and moist cupcakes are filled with smooth homemade custard and generously topped with rich chocolate ganache.

Love Boston cream pie? Then you’re really going to love these cupcakes. The best part is that these handheld treats are so much easier to make than the pie! Trust me, making homemade cupcake batter is much less work than trying to whip up a sponge cake. You get all of the flavors you love here with a fraction of the effort.

While sponge cake can be finicky and can fall (deflate) pretty easily if not done properly, this easy homemade cupcake recipe is a surefire winner. It’s the definition of tried and true and has not failed me yet! I’ve been making this Boston cream cupcakes recipe for years since it’s my husband’s absolute favorite and I’ve never had any hassle with it.

The soft and moist cupcakes are the base of this recipe and they’re all dressed up with custard and chocolate ganache, both of which are also made from scratch. This is one of those dessert recipes I love serving at parties because they fly off the plate.

For Custard:
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup white granulated sugar
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 3 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For Cupcakes:
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 cup low fat buttermilk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For Ganache Frosting:
  • 4 oz semisweet chocolate baking bar
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream simmering hot
