Mini Boston Cream Pie Bites

Here’s a simplified recipe for Mini Boston Cream Pie Bites:


For the Cake:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup milk

For the Filling:

  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Chocolate Ganache:

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a mini muffin tin or use mini cupcake liners.
  2. Make the Cake Batter: In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in vanilla extract. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with milk. Mix until just combined.
  3. Fill Mini Muffin Tin: Spoon the batter into the mini muffin tin, filling each cup about two-thirds full.
  4. Bake: Bake for approximately 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the mini cakes to cool in the tin for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. Make the Filling: In a saucepan, whisk together milk, egg yolks, sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract. Let the custard cool.
  6. Fill the Cakes: Once the mini cakes are completely cooled, use a small spoon or piping bag to fill each cake with the custard filling.
  7. Make the Chocolate Ganache: In a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream until it just starts to simmer. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate chips and let it sit for a minute. Stir until smooth and shiny.
  8. Top with Ganache: Dip the filled mini cakes into the chocolate ganache or drizzle the ganache over the top.
  9. Chill: Place the Mini Boston Cream Pie Bites in the refrigerator for a short time to allow the ganache to set.
  10. Serve and Enjoy: Once set, serve these delightful mini treats and enjoy the deliciousness of Boston Cream Pie in bite-sized form!
