Been dying to try a boston cream cupcake but don't have a recipe for one. If anyone has one I'd love to try it. Thanks.
I don't have a recipe but, would think you could probably just use your standard vanilla cake recipe, then cool and fill with a custard and top with a chocolate ganache.
I second the above poster but I use a yellow cake
If you put "Boston ream pie cupcakes" into Google, there are many recipes. This is the first one on the list:
That might google something awful!
Boston Ream would probably bring up some VERY different results! LMAO
Ha ha ha ha ha.....Maybe I need a new keyboard!
That's one where you can really make it your own. Perfect your cake, pastry cream, and ganache. For my ganache, I make it sweeter with corn syrup and vanilla bean paste in a basic semi-sweet ganache. I use a yellow/vanilla... the same thing... cake with yolks too with predominant vanilla flavor. The pastry cream really needs to take center stage and the consistency needs to be stiff. Cutting out the center in a cone, cut off point of cone, return, is how I get the most cream. The other way is to remove a cone, round up the cream, cover the mounding top with ganache.
Pastry cream is essentially the same for most recipes. The key is to use the best cream or milk, vanilla is the most important, and the butter. I use local dairy products and that is where the superior taste comes from. For the vanilla, vbp, and homemade vanilla extract made with Grey Goose and great beans. This really does separate the ok pastry cream from the best.
I know this isn't really a recipe, but this particular recipe is so much a matter of personal taste. Just tweak the components to make it your favorite.
