For the Cupcakes:

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

For the Custard Filling:

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

For the Chocolate Ganache:

  • 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream


  1. Prepare the Cupcake Batter:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a muffin tin with cupcake liners and set aside.
    • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
    • In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
    • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the milk, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined, being careful not to overmix.
    • Divide the batter evenly among the prepared cupcake liners, filling each liner about two-thirds full.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean. Remove from the oven and allow the cupcakes to cool completely on a wire rack.
  2. Prepare the Custard Filling:
    • In a medium saucepan, heat the whole milk over medium heat until it reaches a simmer. Remove from heat.
    • In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, granulated sugar, and cornstarch until well combined and slightly thickened.
    • Slowly pour the hot milk into the egg mixture, whisking constantly to temper the eggs.
    • Return the mixture to the saucepan and cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, until thickened, about 2-3 minutes.
    • Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Transfer the custard to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap, pressing the wrap directly onto the surface of the custard to prevent a skin from forming. Refrigerate until chilled.
  3. Fill the Cupcakes:
    • Once the cupcakes and custard are completely cooled, use a sharp knife to cut a small cone-shaped piece out of the center of each cupcake.
    • Spoon or pipe the chilled custard into the cavities of the cupcakes, filling each one almost to the top.
  4. Prepare the Chocolate Ganache:
    • In a heatproof bowl, place the chopped chocolate. In a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream over medium heat until it just begins to simmer.
    • Pour the hot cream over the chopped chocolate and let it sit for 2-3 minutes. Then, whisk until smooth and glossy.
  5. Finish the Cupcakes:
    • Dip the top of each filled cupcake into the warm chocolate ganache, allowing any excess ganache to drip off. Place the cupcakes back on the wire rack to set the ganache.
    • Once the ganache has set, serve the cupcakes and enjoy the decadent goodness!
