Homemade Donuts with Boston Cream Filling

If you like donuts, then you must try these. They are so good. I think the glaze is just perfect. I only make them once a year, because I cannot stop eating them. They are that good. 

This year I decided to do a Boston Cream filling for some of them. I tried one recipe that I found online somewhere and it did NOT turn out. I didn't want to ruin my yummy donuts with a gross filling so I tried a recipe from my trusty Betty Crocker Cookbook.  Sometimes the best recipes are right under your nose.  

 You can find the recipe for the donuts at
I've adjusted a couple things. I up the yeast to 2 T. and add 1 T. sugar to the yeast and water mixture. 
 After I cut out the donuts, I let them raise until double, instead of frying them right away. 

It is also VERY important to DOUBLE the glaze. Even then I sometimes run out on the last couple donuts.

You can find the Boston Cream filling recipe at the Betty Crocker website
I just used the cream filling part of the recipe, and piped them into the donuts with a cake decorating bag. You'll want to fill them until it starts squeezing out.

 I refrigerated the filled donuts, but not the regular ones.

I'd love to hear what you think of these. If you try them let me know.
