Boston Cream Donuts

These amazing donuts are nice and crisp on the outside and soft in the center, then in the middle filled with an amazing french vanilla, heavy cream, and powdered sugar, then the tops dipped in a silky, smooth chocolaty ganache. You will no longer need to go to your local donut shop after making these.

Who doesn't love donuts we all do, and this super quick and easy recipe will have you eating warm delicious donuts in just minutes. Made with Pillsbury biscuits, fried to perfection. After I found this recipe I have been making them for breakfast, brunch, snack, or to grab one on the go. You will love these as much as we do. Enjoy!!!

            Ingredients: Makes 8 donuts
  • 1 roll Pillsbury Grands biscuits
  • canola oil
  • For the Filling:
  • 1 box JELL-O Instant French Vanilla Pudding (3.4oz)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • For the Ganache:
  • 2 Tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 Tablespoon corn syrup
  • 2 ounces dark chocolate
  • 2 ounces milk chocolate
  • 2 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  1. In a large mixing bowl prepare the filling first by whisking together the pudding mix with milk. Beat with whisk for about 2 minutes. Set aside.
  2. In a separate large mixing bowl, beat on high the heavy cream with powdered sugar until soft peaks form (about 3 minutes). Fold in pudding mixture. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. In a large, heavy bottomed skillet, heat oil about 3/4-1 inch high. Depending on your size skillet will determine how much oil is necessary. Heat oil, you know it is ready when you drop a couple drops of water into it.
  4. Separate biscuits. Fry each biscuit for 2-3 minutes each side. Allow to cool and dry on paper towels.
  5. For the ganache, add cream, milk, butter, vanilla and corn syrup to a medium saucepan. Heat on medium until butter is melted. Turn to low and add in the dark and milk  chocolates. Whisk constantly until smooth. Remove from heat and whisk in the powdered sugar until ganache is smooth. Set aside.
  6. To assemble the donuts, spoon filling into a large pastry bag with any pastry tip. Press tip into side of donut and squeeze until donut appears to be full. Repeat for remaining donuts.
  7. Dip the top of the donuts into the warm ganache. And enjoy..
