Boston "Irish" Cream Donut

Carol Rich Recipe shared by:
| Follow this Baker

Everyone knows about Boston's rich Irish heritage. So I decided to do the Boston Cream Donut the RIGHT way. Buttermilk biscuits fried up and filled with Irish Cream flavored chocolate pudding & topped off with mint chocolate frosting.

  • Hands-On Time:
  • Total Time:
  • Servings: 8 Donuts
  • Rating:


  • 1 packet of Duncan Hines® Frosting Creations™ Mint Chocolate Flavor Mix and 1 can of Frosting Creations™ Frosting Starter
  • 2 cups of vegetable oil
  • 1 can of refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  • 1 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1/2 cup of Bailey's Original Irish Cream Coffee Creamer
  • 1 box of chocolate instant pudding

Baking Instructions

  1. Pour pack of Duncan Hines® Frosting Creations™ Mint Chocolate Flavor Mix into can of Duncan Hines® Frosting Creations™ Frosting Starter. Stir until evenly blended.
  2. Separate dough into 8 biscuits. In a heavy frying pan, heat up oil over medium heat until hot.
  3. Gently place 3 or 4 biscuits in hot oil. Fry on one side until golden brown. Gently turn with tongs & fry until other side is golden brown.
  4. Place paper towel on top of a cooling rack. When donuts are done, place them on paper towel and cool completely.
  5. In a bowl, add pudding mix, milk and coffee creamer. Beat pudding with a whisk for 2 minutes or until smooth & thick.
  6. To fill donuts, I used a dessert decorator with the filler attachment. Other options are a cookie press or even a turkey baster.
  7. Fill your decorator with the pudding. Make a small hole in the side of each donut. Insert tip of decorator in the hole & squeeze small amount of pudding into the center. Refill you decorator as needed.
  8. Now frost your donuts with the chocolate mint frosting.

Substitution for Buttermilk

Substitution for Buttermilk

For every cup of buttermilk called for, use the same amount of sweet milk, except replace 1 Tbsp of the sweet milk with 1 Tbsp of white vinegar. Allow to sit for 5 minutes, after 5 minutes, stir well. Milk will have clabbered and will work as a perfect substitution for buttermilk for baking purposes. It is cheaper and you are not stuck trying to figure out what to do with the rest of the quart of buttermilk you are never going to use, that is unless you like to drink the stuff!

I would not use the base frosting, use your own. The base is way to runny and thin. Other than that, i love it!
