Chocolate Cream Filling

Chocolate Cream Filling

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon milk


With an electric mixer, combine all ingredients on low, then beat on medium speed for 4-5 minutes until thick and fluffy.  To fill the doughnuts, poke the narrow end of a chopstick into one end of the doughnut, about 2/3 of the way through.  Swirl it around a little to create a space inside for the cream.  Pipe cream into the doughnut.

If glazing doughnuts also, first fill with the cream, then dip in glaze.

Yields enough to fill about 2 dozen doughnuts, depending on how much you use in each  (I only made a dozen doughnuts and had leftover filling).
