Boston Creme Donut

Vanilla Cream Filling:

2/3 cup powdered sugar
2 cups milk
1/2 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
1/4 cup cornstarch
5 large egg yolks
3 tbsp butter

In a pan, combine the sugar with 1 1/2 cups of the milk, and the vanilla. Cook on low heat till sugar dissolves in milk. Prevent it from sticking to the sides.

Add cornstarch to the remaining milk. Add the egg yolks one after another beating it well.

Now pour the hot milk little by little beating the mixture so they blend well. Cook the mixture on low heat for 2 minutes till it becomes little thicker in consistency. Switch off the flame and allow it to cool.


1 cup milk
2 ½ tsp dry yeast
1/3 cup powdered sugar
2 3/4 cups flour
1/4 tsp ground cardamom
1 tsp salt
1 egg
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into tablespoons, softened
Vegetable oil for frying

Gently warm the milk and add yeast to it . Allow it to stand for 20 minutes.
Add butter ,sugar, salt, cardamom and beaten egg to flour and mix well with hands.
Add milk little by little to form a soft sticky dough. Allow it to stand for 4 hours so that volume rises.
Roll the dough with little dry flour to half inch thick layer. Cut with the edges of a glass and fry in oil.
Make a deep insertion in the doughnut with help of a plastic syringe.
Fill the syringe with Vanila frosting and put it inside the doughnut.

For the Choclate glazing , I used dairy milk chocolate, melted it and mixed it with corn syrup. Dip the donut in the chocolate glaze and allow it to cool down.
