How To Make Boston Cream Filled Donuts:

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.

In Process 4

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.
