In this blog post, we’ll walk you through the step-by-step process of making homemade cream doughnuts that are sure to impress your family and friends.


For the Doughnuts:

  • 2 1/4 teaspoons (1 packet) active dry yeast
  • 2/3 cup warm milk (around 110°F or 43°C)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Vegetable oil for frying

For the Filling:

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Glaze:

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3-4 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Food coloring (optional)


1. Activate the Yeast:

  • In a small bowl, combine the warm milk and sugar.
  • Sprinkle the yeast over the mixture and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until it becomes frothy.
  • This indicates that the yeast is active and ready to use.

2. Mix the Dough:

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the yeast mixture, melted butter, salt, and eggs. Gradually add the flour, one cup at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  • Knead the dough until it becomes smooth and elastic, which should take about 5-7 minutes.

3. First Rise:

  • Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover it with a clean kitchen towel, and let it rise in a warm, draft-free place for 1-2 hours or until it has doubled in size.

4. Shape and Cut:

  • Once the dough has risen, punch it down and roll it out on a floured surface to about 1/2-inch thickness.
  • Use a round cutter to cut out doughnut shapes and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Cover them with a kitchen towel and let them rise for another 30 minutes.

5. Heat the Oil:

  • In a deep, heavy-bottomed pot, heat about 2 inches of vegetable oil to 350°F (175°C). Use a candy thermometer to monitor the temperature.

6. Fry the Doughnuts:

  • Carefully place the doughnuts into the hot oil using a slotted spoon. Fry for about 1-2 minutes on each side or until they turn golden brown. Remove them from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined tray to drain any excess oil.

7. Prepare the Filling:

  • In a mixing bowl, whip the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form. Transfer the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a long, narrow tip.

8. Fill the Doughnuts:

  • Once the doughnuts have cooled slightly, use a small knife to create a small slit on the side of each doughnut. Insert the piping tip and fill each doughnut with the cream.

9. Make the Glaze:

  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until you achieve a smooth glaze. Add food coloring if desired.

10. Glaze the Doughnuts: – Dip each cream-filled doughnut into the glaze, allowing any excess to drip off. Place them on a wire rack to set.

11. Enjoy! – Serve your homemade cream doughnuts fresh and enjoy the deliciousness you’ve created!

These cream-filled doughnuts are a delightful treat that’s perfect for breakfast or as a sweet snack. You can get creative with different glaze colors and decorations to make them even more appealing. Enjoy your homemade cream doughnuts, and don’t forget to share them with loved ones!
