The Boston cream (pie) doughnut or donut is a round, solid, yeast-risen doughnut with chocolate frosting and a pudding filling, a miniature donut version of the Boston cream pie.[1][2]

History[edit]

The Boston cream doughnut was designated the official doughnut of Massachusetts in 2003[3] after the Boston cream pie itself was chosen as the state dessert in 1996.

The hard work and persistence of Somerville resident Emma Krane and her classmates finally paid off on New Year's Day of 2003 when at the time active Governor Jane Swift signed an act designating the Boston Cream Donut as the official donut of Massachusetts into law.

Portland, Oregon has re-appropriated the doughnut as the "Portland Cream", the official doughnut of Portland.
