Boston Cream Cake Filling
by: Michelle (admin)

Hi Norma Jean,

Pastry cream is the traditional filling for Boston Cream Pie/Cake. Try this recipe:

2 cups milk
1/2 cup white sugar
2 egg yolks
1 egg
1/4 cup cornstarch
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


1. In a heavy saucepan, stir together the milk and 1/4 cup of sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and egg. Stir together the remaining sugar and cornstarch; then stir them into the egg until smooth. When the milk comes to a boil, slowly add 1/2 cup of the hot milk mix into the bowl in a thin stream while mixing so that you do not cook the eggs. Now add the egg mixture to the saucepan, and slowly bring to a boil, stirring constantly so the eggs don' t curdle or scorch on the bottom.
3. When the mixture comes to a boil and thickens, remove from the heat. Stir in the butter and vanilla, mixing until the butter is completely blended in. Pour into a heat-proof container and place a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface to prevent a skin from forming. Refrigerate until chilled before using.
