First recipe posting here, hopefully others enjoy it. I was looking for a good Bavarian Creme Doughnut and I looked for a bit and couldn't find much. There were a couple of things that were simple that I mixed up and didn't care for. I decided to make this my first mix. I am aiming for biting into the center of the doughnut here. The ooey, gooey center bite that results in a super creamy feel.

Zeppola/YC/Joy: This is the doughnut base. Zeppola is one of my favorites here. I tried TPA - Frosted before this and it just didnt fit right. There was something off, or artificial with it. I've tested this as a doughnut base, and it gives me a "Fresh fried doughnut" feel; slightly yeasty as well. This is my base I use for many doughnuts now.

Bavarian Cream/French Vanilla Creme/SC/Meringue/VC: This is my Bavarian Cream. The custard/meringue combo gives me a slightly thicker cream. I tried without those, and it felt too "watered" down.

The chocolate glaze: DCC. This is use lightly, as I just wanted it as a thin glaze.

I was asked how the vape experience was, and this was my reply: Its got a strong fried doughnut taste on the inhale and beginning of the exhale. Then its followed by the Bavarian cream/semi creamy flavor, with a very slight chocolate at the end of the exhale. It's a pretty thick and dense vape. Very flavorful. A couple of people have commented on the fact that the French Vanilla is so high, but it is not as strong after the steep; gets toned down by the other flavors in the mix. The doughnut taste lingers on the tongue, with a little bit of the cream as well.

If you want a little more balance, more even texture/doughnut to cream feel, you can drop the Bav Cream down to about 1% or so and drop the french vanilla cream down to about 1.5%. This adds more of a texture and balance to the mix.

Omitted the FA Joy as I do not have that and substituted TPA sweetner for the FW sweetner. This is definitely a winner. Nice balance of flavors. Thank you for the recipe SlashaLO. It is excellent. I may up the Bavarian Cream to 3% and add 1% FA Vienna Cream in this to get a little more of the creamy center. Also, might up the sweetner to 0.75% since I am using the TPA sweetner and at 0.25% it doesn't seem to be doing much. Will let you know how it turns out. Thank you again and happy vaping everyone! CV Edit 4-26-2021 - After some steeping time the chocolate is beginning to mellow out a little and the creams are coming thru a little better. Just keeps getting more delicious. Wonderful recipe and SPOT ON Bavarian Cream Donut!

Tried it after just a week. Amazing. That perfect amount of chocolate at the end of the exhale keeps me want to take another and another and..... puff. Very well put together cream doughnut. Can't wait to see how it evolves. Made a 60 but will make a bigger batch so i can reach there. Thank you.

Great overall balance of the cream, chocolate, and donut glaze (zeppola) - an easily ADV-able mix. Forgot I had one steeping, found and tried it after two months. Amazing vape, now I'm afraid of running out and always keep at least a 60mL on hand.

Steeped for the recommended 14 days. At first all i could taste was the zeppola but been vaping it on and off for 3 days and i guess i have gotten used to the zeppola and can taste the creamy goodness as well. Really reminds me of a bav cream donut. Solid recipe

This is really good. Steeped for 2 weeks it turns into gold. Cream isn't too overpowering and a nice donut is present with just a hint of chocolate. Well done!
