I have to be honest, I’ve been so uninspired to write. I made these Baileys Boston cream doughnuts last weekend and I had planned to post it last week but it’s taken me a whole week to get started in writing this post. It’s not that I’m not excited to share the recipe with you because these doughnuts were absolutely delicious. Doesn’t get much better than fluffy doughnuts filled with a custard filling spiked with Baileys Irish Cream and then dipped into a dark chocolate glaze. But with Tristan and I getting married this month I have a lot of things that need to get done and my mind has been preoccupied. Anyway, it’s better late than never, right?
Baileys Irish Cream is definitely the star of the show and I put it in both the custard filling and the chocolate glaze. I substituted Baileys for heavy cream in the custard and the result was brilliant. Although I made my custard while my dough was kneading in the bread machine, you can make it the night before and keep it chilled in the fridge.
Once the doughnuts have been fried and cooled, fill ’em up with that boozy Baileys Boston cream and dip ’em into the boozy chocolate glaze.
These Baileys Boston cream doughnuts are fluffy and full of sweet, boozy, creamy custard that pairs so well with the dark chocolate glaze. They’re the perfect thing to celebrate an adult St. Patrick’s Day with!
Will you be making something in celebrating St. Patty’s Day?
