If I said to you, I have a dessert recipe from Bavaria or Vienna, or one from Boston, which one sounds like it may be richer to you? There is a distinct difference between Bavarian Cream and plain custard. The donut shops can call it anything they want to. It doesn't mean it is true. A true Bavarian Crème has alcohol in it. A plain custard doesn't. Which would you feed to your three month old baby? What you find in the donuts is made from a powdered product that the donut shop buys in 50 pound bags. On the outside of the bag the words are very clear. "Powdered Custard Cream Product." It can be mixed with milk or water. I am afraid if you are looking for a true Bavarian Crème doughnut, you will have to go to a very upscale doughnut shop in an expensive shopping mall. Or in the tea room at a Ritz Hotel.
