I made this cake just to use the forgotten jaffa cookies that were too dry be eaten. You know how fast wafers or cookies lose their freshness if left open for several days. But, don't worry, we can always recycle food :) If you need a standard sponge biscuit, I will also write the ingredients for the sponge cake in the end, so it is your choice what to put as a biscuit. The recipe is for a smaller cake, and if you make a bigger one, double the filling.

Cream ingredients:

  • 500 ml of milk (2 cups)
  • 6 tablespoons flour
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 3 tablespoons cocoa cream Nutella or other (for the dark filling)

  • 200 g crushed walnuts
  • 6-7 tablespoons of boiling milk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar        (mix this for the light filling)


  • 100 g of dark chocolate
  • 150 ml of milk
  • 50 g butter
  • 1 teaspoon starch

Base 1:

  • 200 g crushed biscuits
  • 50 g melted butter
  • juice of half a squeezed orange

Base 2:

  • about 15 jaffa cookies


  1. The filling is prepared first.
    Mix the sugar and sifted flour, add them to the milk, add the vanilla, and heat this mixture in a saucepan, stirring constantly, as when making a pudding. Stir until the mixture thickens. Allow to cool.
  2. Then divide the filling into 2 parts. 
  3. In one part add 3 tablespoons of cocoa cream and mix with the mixer. 
  4. In the other part, add the nuts mixture. Whisk with the mixer. You will get one light and one dark filling, both DELICIOUS.
  5. Then in a round mold No.24, apply the first layer. Add the crushed biscuits previously mixed with orange juice and melted butter. Spread the mixture evenly, press with your hands. 
  6. Then apply one filling. 
  7. Arrange the jaffa cookies on top with the chocolate part facing down, sprinkle them with a little milk to soften and then apply the other filling on top.
  8. Prepare the glaze. Dissolve the starch in the cold milk, add the chocolate and butter and heat the mixture well, stirring until all the ingredients are combined and until the glaze thickens. If it is too thick, add some milk. Immediately apply the glaze on top of the cake and place it in the fridge to harden nicely.

    If you make a sponge cake, whisk 6 eggs with 6 tablespoons of sugar, add 6 tablespoons of crushed walnuts, 1 tbs baking powder, 200 ml of orange juice and 2 tablespoons of flour. Mix well and bake the mixture in the same mold or slightly larger. After baking and cooling, divide into 2 horizontal parts and apply filling. This sponge cake replaces 2 bases.
