The Boston cream doughnut (sometimes written with "creme" or "kreme") is a round, solid, yeast-risen doughnut with chocolate frosting and a creamy vanilla-flavored custard filling: a miniature version of the Boston cream pie.[1][2]


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.
