I really enjoy watching Chef John and using this recipe. My chickens have really started laying so I have plenty of farm fresh eggs to bake with. As a result, I make this at least once a month for friends and family. Instead of a cake mix, however, I prefer to make a simple yellow cake from scratch. Why not? I have plenty of eggs! I'm not picky on chocolate either and use the generic semi-sweet chips for the chocolate. Here's my most recent Boston Cream Pie using Chef John's tips and recipe. Oh, and I agree with everyone that suggest using a higher heat (especially using electric) for the pastry cream.
