If you've ever wanted to make your own version of those iconic treats then this recipe's got you covered. Filled with a creamy buttercream, these will have you completely forgetting the boxed kind for sure.
Beat "butter" in a large mixing bowl until creamed. Add vanilla and almond extract, salt, and powdered sugar one cup at a time. Add milk beat until light and fluffy. You may need to add more milk as needed for frosting consistency to be light and fluffy.
Fill a pastry bag, fitted with long narrow tip, with your filling. Use chopstick or skewer to poke 3 - 4 holes around the doughnuts then pipe filling sideways into doughnuts. Serve as soon as possible after piping.
If you need to make this ahead of time it's best to keep filling separately and just wait to fill right before serving.
