  1. Let’s go for the filling: we take 6 donuts, chop them using the chopper again and reserve them. Here we can make it more or less fine depending on whether we want to notice the texture of the donuts when eating the cake. We did not completely do to surprise with small pieces inside the filling.
  2. We put a medium or large casserole on the fire. While we are mixing with some rods we add the cream, the milk, the 125 grams of white sugar, the two envelopes of powdered curd and the cheese to spread.

  4. When the mixture is uniform, add the 6 chopped donuts. We keep mixing until it starts to boil
  5. Just at the moment when the first bubbles begin to appear, remove the pan from the heat and pour the mixture on the base that covers the bottom of the mold.
  6. So there are no air bubbles and settles well. Slightly raise the mold and gently tap it a couple of times on the counter. Be careful that you make it completely flat.
  7. If there are higher parts of the filling in the center, we go over the entire surface with the outside of a spoon to smooth it out.
  8. We cover the mold with transparent film and put it in the refrigerator for a minimum of 3-4 hours. If you prefer, you can let it sit overnight as we have.

Coverage and final presentation of the donut cake

  1. To make the coverage, we break the digestive type cookies and cut the remaining saloon into medium pieces.
  2. We put everything in the glass of the grinder together with the brown sugar, the teaspoon of cinnamon and the melted butter (about 30 seconds are enough in the microwave).
  3. Chop until it becomes a uniform paste.
  4. Take the mold out of the fridge, carefully spread the coverage over the filling. We make sure to cover the entire surface to the edge.
