NATIONAL CREAM-FILLED DONUT DAY - September 14

NATIONAL CREAM FILLED DONUT DAY – September 14

NATIONAL CREAM-FILLED DONUT DAY

National Cream-Filled Donut Day on September 14th recognizes one of our favorite foods. 

Cream-filled donuts come in so many varieties. If you aren’t a fan of fillings in your pastries, consider trying some of the latest flavors. Not only have bakeries become creative with their fillings, but they’ve also branched out with their toppings, too. 

Some of the top cream-filled donuts we love (in no particular order) are:

  • Boston Cream
  • Bavarian Cream
  • Chocolate Cream
  • Lemon Cream
  • Custard
  • Caramel Cream
  • Strawberry Cream
  • Vanilla Cream
  • Peanut Buttercream
  • Holland Cream
  • Fluffernutter Cream
  • Orange Vanilla Cream
  • Nutella Cream
  • Marshmallow Cream
  • Maple Cream
  • Espresso Cream
  • Coconut Cream

Now, if this list doesn’t make you run out and fill an order for at least a dozen, keep reading. And, there’s not a sprinkle to be found.

Add bacon crumbles to the maple cream. If you order an espresso cream, ask for a hazelnut drizzle. Of course, if you’re in an autumn frame of mind, sprinkle it with pumpkin spice and sugar. Orange vanilla cream makes an excellent dessert when topped with vanilla ice cream. Serve the caramel cream with coffee and cozy up with a good book. When it comes to marshmallow cream, the obvious toppings are chocolate and graham cracker crumbs.
