For cake:
2 eggs;
5-6 tablespoons of milk;
2 tablespoons of cocoa;
5 tablespoons of healthy flour (rice, whole wheat, oatmeal, or any other);
vanilla extract;
1 teaspoon of baking powder;
3 tablespoons of cane sugar or another sweetener to taste.

For custard:
250 ml of milk;
2 tablespoons of cane sugar;
1 tablespoon of corn starch;
Also optionally nuts (30-50 g) are added.

Cooking method:

  1. We make the basis for the cake. Beat eggs with sugar, add milk, flour with baking powder, cocoa. Mix the dough well. It turns out thick.
  2. Put the dough in a mold or just on a parchment sheet. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes at a temperature of 180 degrees.
  3. Make custard. We mix milk, sugar, and starch – put on fire. Cook until thickened, not bringing to a boil.
  4. Cool the cake. Break into pieces, put in a blender bowl. Also, add nuts. Grind the contents into crumbs.
  5. Transfer the resulting mixture into a bowl, pour the custard. Mix the mass. It turns out to be thick and viscous, molds well. But it’s better to let it brew for 30 minutes.
  6. Form a cake of the desired shape and size.
  7. You can decorate it with the rest of the cream by making white peaks on a cake or pour with chocolate/glaze (2 tablespoons of sour cream, 2 tablespoons of cocoa, 20 g of butter, 2 tablespoons of sugar – cook until thickened).

The recipe is prepared without strict rules. It is always possible to replace one or another ingredient with a more acceptable one:

  1. It is not necessary to bake a cake under the cake. Use the remaining biscuit left over after making another cake or pie.
  2. Instead of corn starch, you can take 10 g of gelatin. In this case, heat the milk with gelatin to a warm state in the microwave. Then add sugar/sweetener. Stir until the gelatin dissolves. Pour the mass into the biscuit crumble, mix and put in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Only then, when the mixture becomes thicker, do we form “potatoes”.
  3. Cook without cocoa. The cake will turn white inside. From above, for authenticity, you can pour dessert with melted dark chocolate.
  4. If you want to make “potato” from store cookies, choose more useful varieties of it, such as oatmeal cookies.
  5. Instead of cow’s milk, use any vegetable: oat, chickpea, almond, etc. And also, in fasting and vegans, you can not use eggs in the recipe. Replacing them with a mixture of flaxseed with water (2 tablespoons of seeds, pour 50 ml of water – grind with a blender).
  6. You can decorate dessert in different ways, in accordance with the upcoming event. If you cook for the New Year, depict the face of the animal, a symbol of the coming year. For example a mouse, a cow. For children, a decoration in the form of a hedgehog, with numerous white peaks on top, is more suitable. And to make it convenient to eat, the cake can be placed on a stick, making it in the form of a popsicle.
