Preparing the Kiri cheese cream

  1. In a medium bowl, add kiri cheese portions, honey, cinnamon, and mix with a spatula until all the ingredients are well incorporated and the texture is creamy. Set aside.

  2. In another medium bowl, add the rice flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, sugar, spices, and mix well using a spatula until well combined. Make a hole in the centre of the dry ingredients, add the egg mixture, and mix with a spatula until the batter mixture becomes lightly thick and smooth. Cover the bowl with a plastic wrap and set aside for 20 minutes.
  3. Heat a donut maker. Pour 1 tablespoon of batter into each donut hole and cook for 5 minutes until golden brown.
