Ingredients needed for these Delicious Cream Filled Doughnuts 

  • 1 1⁄4 cups milk
  • 2 1⁄4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 2 eggs
  • 1⁄2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted and cooled
  • 1⁄4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 1⁄2 to 5 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 8 cups vegetable oil, for frying

For the cream filling:

  • 1⁄4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1⁄2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1⁄4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon vanilla extract (clear is best for maintaining white color)
  • 2 cups powdered sugar

For the glaze:

  • 1⁄2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 6 tablespoons evaporated milk

How to make homemade cream filled doughnuts with homemade glaze

Heat milk in the microwave about 60 seconds until 90 degrees. Transfer to a stand mixer
mixing bowl and stir in the yeast until dissolved. Allow yeast to rest for 5 minutes.

With the paddle attachment, beat in the eggs, butter, sugar, salt, and 4 cups flour.

Switch the mixer to the dough hook attachment. Knead at medium speed, adding flour 1⁄4
cup at a time until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Continue kneading at
medium speed for about 3 minutes. The dough will be soft and a little sticky.

Transfer the dough to a greased bowl, turning once. Cover and place in a draft-free spot
for 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in size.

Punch dough down and place on a lightly floured surface.

Using a rolling pin, roll the dough to 1⁄2 inch thickness. Using a round cookie cutter, cut dough into circles and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet at least 1 inch apart. Knead any scrap pieces of dough into a mound of dough and continue rolling out and cutting the doughnuts until all of the dough is used.

Cover the doughnuts and place in a draft-free spot for 1 hour or until the doughnuts have doubled in size.

Heat oil in a dutch oven or deep fryer between 350 and 375 degrees.

Carefully lift the doughnuts from the parchment paper using a wire spatula and place it in oil a few at a time. Do not crowd the oil. Cook until golden brown, about 1 minute on each side.

Remove doughnuts and place them on a wire cooling rack or paper toweling.

For the cream filling:

In a small saucepan, heat water and sugar over medium heat until the sugar has melted and the solution boils. Remove the pan from heat and allow to cool completely.

When the sugar syrup is cooled, transfer the syrup to a mixing bowl and beat together with vegetable shortening, vegetable oil, and vanilla.

Add powdered sugar a little at a time and beat until fluffy.

When the doughnuts have cooled completely, poke a hole in the doughnut using a bamboo skewer, and gently move the bamboo skewer inside the doughnut to create a cavity.

Transfer the cream into a piping bag with an open tip.

Place the tip inside the doughnut and press the bag to fill the doughnut. Do not overfill as the doughnut will crack.

How to make doughnut glaze

Mix all ingredients together until smooth. Add additional evaporated milk if a thinner consistency is desired.

Invert the doughnut and dip in the glaze. Place on a wire rack.
