Step 1
Cream together the Granulated Sugar (3/4 cup) and Butter (1/2 cup) . Add the Eggs (2) and Vanilla Extract (1/2 Tbsp) . Combine thoroughly.
Step 2
Mix the All-Purpose Flour (1 1/2 cups) , Baking Powder (1 1/2 cups) , Corn Starch (1 Tbsp) , and Salt (1/4 tsp) . Add them to the wet mixture. Whisk until incorporated.
Step 3
Stir in the Milk (1/2 cup) and pour the batter 3/4 high into the cups of a greased muffin tin. Bake the cupcakes at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Step 4
Separate Eggs (2) Yolks and set aside.
Step 5
To make the custard, add the Granulated Sugar (1/4 cup) to the saucepan. Follow it with Whole Milk (1 cup) , Egg Yolks, Corn Starch (1 Tbsp) and Vanilla Extract (1 tsp) . Whisk together the ingredients until well combined. Over medium heat, stir the custard constantly for 3-8 minutes or until thick. Strain the thickened custard into a bowl to prevent any lumps.

Heat the Heavy Cream (4 fl oz) and add the Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (2/3 cup) . Let sit for several minutes, then stir to combine.

Take a cupcake and cut in half. Spread some of the custard in a layer and replace the top of the cupcake. Add a dollop of the chocolate ganache to the top. Repeat with the other cupcakes.
