Prep
Cook
Serves 12people
Ingredients
8
tbsp butter, room temperature
1
cup sugar
3
large eggs
2
tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2
cups all-purpose flour
1
tsp baking powder
1
tsp salt
1/2
cup milk
Vanilla custard filling
1/4
cup granulated sugar
1-1/2
tbsp cornstarch
1/8
tsp kosher salt
1
cup milk
2
egg yolks
1
tsp pure vanilla extract
Chocolate ganache
6
oz semi sweet chocolate
3/4
cup heavy whipping cream
Directions
1.
Preheat your oven to 350° F. Spray a 12-cup muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
2.
Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a medium-sized bowl. Whisk the ingredients until well combined.
3.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla.
4.
Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition.
5.
Fill the muffin tin cups 2/3 full. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
6.
Allow to cool for 15 minutes in the muffin pan before turning out to a cooling rack. Cool completely.
7.
Using a serrated knife, cut each cupcake in half horizontally. Spread 1 tbsp of custard filling on each cupcake bottom. Sandwich with top. Spoon the ganache over each, and serve immediately.
8.
For the vanilla custard: in a small bowl, whisk the egg yolks until smooth. Set aside. Whisk the sugar, cornstarch and salt together in a small saucepan on medium heat. Add the milk and whisk to combine. Continue to whisk occasionally until the mixture thickens. About 3-4 minutes. Pour a ladle full of the milk mixture over the eggs yolks and whisk thoroughly. Pour the egg mixture back into saucepan. Whisk to combine and cook another minute. Custard will thicken as it cools, but it should not be runny at this point. Add the vanilla, stir one last time and remove from the heat to cool. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least 1 hour.
9.
For the chocolate ganache: Place the chocolate in a medium-sized, heat safe bowl. In a small sauce pan over medium heat, bring the cream to a boil. Pour the cream over the chocolate and gently stir until you have a smooth mixture. Allow to cool at room temperature.
