If you’re craving a doughnut with more than just a hollow centre, an Italian-style Bombolone is just what you need! These fluffy yeasted doughnuts are puffed up with two different luscious pastry creams. To top it all off, a sprinkle of sugar for some bomb Bombolini! Feel free to skip the sugar coating for a less sweet and healthier version. 

The lime pastry cream has a tangy and refreshing flavour that provides fantastic balance with the flavour of the Bomboloni, while the Hojicha pastry cream gives a nice, earthy and roasted flavour.

With ~14x bombolonis and two different pastry creams in this kit, you are going to be a hit at any gatherings!

Every one of our recipes was created to use medium-sized eggs, as that is easily found in the supermarket. To make sure your eggs are the right-sized, get eggs that weigh 55g with shell. To determine that, follow the steps below when buying your next carton:

  • Check the label for the total weight of all the eggs.
  • Take that number and divide it by the total number of eggs in the carton
  • The answer should be ~55g.


Carton of 10 eggs > Total weight = 550g > 550/10 = 55g
