I made these cupcakes back in February and it took me this much time to post the recipe. Recipe is from ‘the big book of Cupcakes cookbook. The pictures were too tempting and the thought of having one of my favorite donut flavors in a cupcake was very exciting. 

The creamy ‘Boston Cream’ part of the cupcake is made vanilla instant pudding mix, which makes it quick and easy to make. I made my basic Vegan vanilla cupcakes recipe and then filled them with the custard and topped them with chocolate icing. These cupcakes were a big hit with both kids and adults.
