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.

Moist cake

Moist cake

I just wanted to comment. I raised my 6 children in Salem, NH. That was back in the 1960's. A friend of mine shared a recipe with me and my Duncan Heinz cake mixes became so moist. I used 4 eggs, 1 package of instant pudding, flavor of the cake, 2 cup of oil and cooked per the package instructions. Then some years later, don't know exactly when, Duncan Heinz put the pudding in the cake. People used to rave about my cakes, how moist and fresh they were. TYou. But, today, I just follow the package
