Boston Cream Cupcakes

Who doesn't love a chocolate cupcake with some yummy creamy filling inside. It may seem hard to make, but it's so easy, the kids love helping out and there's nothing better than taking a bite of the cupcake and seeing all this gooey filling pour out.


I was trying to figure out how to make these, they were intimidating to me, yes I occasionally get scared off by food. Who knew?!?!?!

All you need is your favorite chocolate or yellow cake mix. Go ahead and make the cupcakes and then let them cool down completely.

In the meantime make a box of your favorite pudding mix, either vanilla or banana cream pie (our favorite).

Once the cupcakes are cooled take a piping bag with a small round pastry tip on it, fill with the pudding.
With a sharp knife, make a small hole on the top of each cupcake, and then place tip inside hole and gently squeeze some pudding into it.


You will see the cupcake expanding, don't insert too much or it will crack wide open. (learnt from experience).


Do all the cupcakes and then all that is left is to add the frosting. It's SO EASY.....the kids love helping me frost and even decorate the cupcakes.

I usually pop them in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes, then enjoy :)


  1. Those are BRILLIANT! I am going to make them tonight - excellent for my daughter's last day of school lunchbox.

  2. I am absolutely going to try these out!!!

  3. Oh, yum, these sound *so* good!
