Boston Cream Pie Cupcakes  recipe@he

 

I have always loved the fourth of July.

parades

fireworks

GREAT bbq

and my family always had a HUGE party

{complete with explosions that would put out the neighborhood street lights}

Our town also puts on a spectacular rodeo, and the bull run happens to take place on my street; it is quite the event.

But you know me, holidays are all about the food,

and while apple pie may be America’s pie,

when I think patriotic it’s Boston Cream Pie that comes to mind.

 

 

However, the last thing I want to do when the bulls are outside playing in my front yard, is to be inside cutting and serving.

That’s where cupcakes come in mighty handy.

Just look at that ganache!!

This recipe makes 18 regular size cupcakes, but

I made 12 and then 3 LARGE ones :)

{guess which I’ll be eating}

Because these are made with only Greek yogurt, no butter at all,I’m not even going to feel guilty!

    A rodeo??? How fun Heather! The 4th has always been one of the best days of summer. It’s always fun, relaxed with good friends and good food! I am adding these cupcakes to the good food category for sure! These are wonderful!

    I almost never make cupcakes b/c they are so much work, i.e. the filling of the muffin pan, then frosting them, the piping bag – but you eliminated the whole piping bag thing which makes me totally want to try. And no butter. Amazing! So festive, too!

    Ok, these are the key words that got my attention: Boston, cream pie, and cupcakes. And then the excellent photos with the chocolate ganache topping sealed the deal. Gotta try these! No doubt our grand kids will love them too. And especially like the red, white and blue accents in honor of the 4th. Now … if we only had a rodeo in our area! Thanks for sharing!

    These look SO yummy and they are adorable!
    Thanks so much for linking up to our “Best Of The Weekend” party! I have also pinned this to our BOTW party board and to another big board of mine!
    Have a great rest of your weekend and we hope to see you back at the party next week. :)
    xoxo
