My brothers birthday was Jan 2nd but we were out of town oh yeah and he lives out of state ;) but he came for a visit! He loves Boston Cream Pie it is one of his all time favorite desserts so I knew I needed to make it for his birthday dinner we were doing for him. I saw this recipe
and I knew this would be perfect for him same thing he loves just in a different form.
It was super easy to make and it tastes Delicious!!! I will be making this again for sure!
1 box of Yellow Cake mix and the ingredients it calls for!
Cream Filling Ingredients:
1 cup of Sugar
1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp of Corn Starch
3 cups of Whole Milk
9 Egg Yolks
2 Tsp of Vanilla
1 cup of Heavy Whipping Cream Whipped
Chocolate Ganache Ingredients:
2 cups of Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
3/4 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
1. Make the Cake as package directs. Pour batter into a sprayed cookie sheet I used my sheet cake pan which worked perfect! Bake on 350 degrees for 16-20 minutes or until the cake springs back when you touch it. Set aside to cool and make your cream filling.
Cream Filling Directions:
1. Separate egg yolks in a small bowl. In a large saucepan over medium heat, whisk together sugar, cornstarch and milk. Stir constantly until the mixture begins to thicken, it usually will take about 5-7 minutes. Temper eggs with 1/2 cup of milk mixture. Slowly add the egg mixture back into the saucepan, stirring rapidly as you do. Cook for an additional minute. Remove from hear and stir in the vanilla. Transfer to a bowl and cool completely in the refrigerator for 2-3 hrs. Once cooled, gently fold in the whipped cream and return to the refrigerator while you do the next two steps.
You can now cut your cake into bite sized cubes and set aside.
Chocolate Ganache Directions:
1. In a microwave safe bowl melt the chocolate chips and heavy cream. Stir and set aside.
1.Place 1/3 of the cake cubes in the bottom of a trifle bowl.
2.Spoon 1/3 of the pastry cream over the cake cubes.
3.Carefully drizzle 1/3 of the chocolate ganache over the pastry cream.
4. Repeat for two more layers.
