Holland Creme - That Amazing White Stuff In Donuts

I remember going to the grocery store every Saturday morning when I was growing up, and my favorite place in the entire store was the donut case. All the glazed, powdered and filled baked goods drew me like a magnet.

My favorites, far and away, were the ones filled with that beautiful white, fluffy creme. At the time I didn't know it was called Holland Creme - I just knew it was the most amazing concoction ever.

Ever.

Here is my version of this sweet treat. You can make your own fried donuts and fill them, or like I did here, you can cut a crevice into store-bought donuts with a knife and fill them with creme in a piping bag. Either way, you're going to love it.

Ingredients:
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup shortening
1 cup butter
1 Tbsp vanilla
7 cups powdered sugar

1. Make a simple syrup by combining sugar and water in a sauce pan over medium heat until boiling, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely before continuing.

2. Transfer the syrup to the bowl of an electric mixer. Add vegetable oil, shortening, butter and vanilla, mixing on high until smooth.

3. Add the powdered sugar one cup at a time until the creme is smooth and fluffy.
