Whole Wheat Cream Filled Donuts

Start back up with a donut recipe?  You know it!  These are amazing.  Done and Done.  These would be perfect for a brunch or holiday breakfast - and I promise you won't miss real donuts!  Please let me know what you think when you make them! 
Recipe after the jump!

For the donuts:
1 can evaporated fat free milk
1 packet active dry yeast
2 tbsp of Brommel & Brown butter spread (or similar) - melted
16 Splenda packets
1/2 cup Egg Beaters
5 cups 100% Whole Wheat flour
1 tsp sea salt
ground nutmeg to taste

For filling:
1 tub fat free whipped topping
1 packet vanilla sugar free pudding

In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, warm milk to around 95 degrees, stirring constantly to avoid scalding. Set aside 1 cup of milk, and pour the other 1/3 cup into a large bowl and add the yeast. Stir in briefly, then let sit for five minutes. Meanwhile, mix the splenda and butter into the other cup of milk. Add to yeast mixture, then use a fork to stir in egg beaters, nutmeg, salt, and flour, just until the flour is fully mixed into the batter.

With a dough hook, knead the dough in the bowl until it begins to pull away from the sides and becomes smooth and glossy. Lightly flour a working surface or counter and knead briefly, then shape into a ball, transfer to a bowl sprayed with nonstick cooking spray and put in a warm place to rise until doubled (about an hour).

Punch down and use a lightly floured rolling pin to roll the dough out into a 1/2-inch thick sheet.  Cut the donuts with the tip of a pint glass. Should make around 16 donuts.  Cover with a damp cloth and allow to rise an additional 45 minutes. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the bottoms begin to turn golden

Take out of the oven and allow to cool.  While they cool - mix together and whipped topping and pudding packet.  Add milk as needed to thin it out.

When the donuts cool, use a frosting tip to push the filling into the middle of the donuts. 

Sprinkle with a bit of confectioners sugar and enjoy!
