Boston Cream Donuts Recipe: Make Your Own At Home!

Boston Cream Donut Final 1

Boston Cream Donuts!!! My husband’s favorite kind. Imagine being able to make these at home – oh my goodness. Oh wait, you can! Just follow the recipe below and enjoy every delicious bite.

For the Donut:

  • 1 pkg 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 Tbsp heavy cream
  • 2 Tbsp milk
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp corn syrup
  • 2 oz dark chocolate
  • 2 oz milk chocolate
  • 2 1/4 cup powdered sugar



  • Prepare the filling first by whisking together the pudding mix with milk. Beat with whisk for about 2 minutes. Set aside.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, beat on high with an electric mixer the heavy cream with powdered sugar until soft peaks form (about 3 minutes). Fold in pudding mixture. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • In a large, heavy bottomed skillet, heat oil about 1/2-3/4 inch high.
  • Depending on your size skillet will determine how much oil is necessary.
  • Separate biscuits. Fry each biscuit for 2-3 minutes each side. Allow to cool and dry on paper towels.
  • 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 chocolates. Whisk continuously until smooth.
  • Remove from heat and whisk in the powdered sugar until ganache is smooth. Set aside.
  • To assemble the donuts spoon filling into a large pastry bag with tip. Press tip into side of donut and squeeze until donut appears “full.” There will be some filling that comes out and this is ok.
  • Repeat for remaining donuts.
  • Spoon warm ganache over each filled donut.
