Homemade Bavarian Creme filling

I've had this recipe for a long time and always loved it, but it wasn't exactly a "Bavarian cream". So I tweaked it up a bit, and this is what I came up with. I hope you like it too.


  • 2 Cups granulated sugar 5 Tbl. Cornstarch 4 Tbl. Cocoa 2 Cups Milk or Half and Half 1/2 Cup Margarine 4 Egg Yolks 1 tsp. vanilla


In a 2 Quart pot on the stove top, heat burner to med-low add all dry ingredients then add milk, margarine, and eggs. Wisk constantly until mixture becomes thickened. Remove from stove top and add vanilla. Allow to cool before layering cakes. Half and Half makes the difference.

Sounds delicious and simple. It's the best of both worlds. Can't wait to try it!
Can i use butter as a substitute? I dont buy margarine
what do you mean by half and half?
Half & half can be found in milk case. It's half milk half cream
