Ingredients

  • Cadbury Caramilk Flake - 1
  • Milk - 175 ml
  • Caster sugar - 1/4 cup
  • Salt - 1 pinch
  • Flour - 480 g
  • Eggs - 2
  • Yeast - 7 g
  • Unsalted butter - 130 g
  • Canola oil - 2 L
  • Philadelphia cream cheese - 250 g
  • Icing sugar - 1/2 cup
  • Vanilla essence - 2 tsp
  • Cream - 1 cup
  • Cadbury chocolate melts - 180 g
  • Glucose syrup - 1 Tbsp

Method

  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook, combine all the dough ingredients, except for the butter and mix for 10 -15 minutes until smooth.

  2. Add the butter in chunks and mix for a further 3 minutes until combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl.

  3. Transfer the dough to a clean, well oiled bowl, cover with clingfilm and allow to prove for 1 hour or until doubled in size.

  4. Divide the dough into 18 even size pieces and roll, using a circular motion, to create a ball shape. (To make doughnuts with holes, use a small cutter or your finger to poke a hole in the centre of the doughnuts).

  5. Place the doughnuts on well oiled sheets of baking paper, cover with a clean tea towel and let them rise for 1-2 hours or until doubled in size.

  6. Fry the doughnuts in batches in a deep wide pan at 170C, turning frequently until light golden brown, about 3 minutes.

  7. Remove from oil and drain.

  8. When cool, fill or ice and decorate with the chocolate glaze and add Caramilk Flake!

  9. For the filling, whisk Cream Cheese in a stand mixer with icing sugar and vanilla until smooth. Add cream and continue to whisk until thick. Place in a piping bag and pipe into doughnuts.

  10. For the chocolate glaze, place the ingredients in a medium bowl in the microwave for 20 second intervals on 100%, until melted and smooth. Finish with the edible decorations and crumbled Flake Caramilk.
