Preparation -- 10 minutes

Make sure the puff pastry sheets or defrosted and if you use small square sheets, you can create one big sheet by sticking them together with a bit of water.

Make a rectangle with 2 squares high and 4 squares wide. CRUMBLE the cheese if needed and combine with 3 eggs, sugar, vanilla sugar and extract until it's a smooth mixture.

PRE-HEAT the oven to 180 degrees celsius or 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line the spring form's bottom with parchment paper.

Finishing up the vanilla cake with Romanian cheese -- 40 minutes

DIVIDE the cheese mixture over the puff pastry sheet, it should be a thin layer. FOLD the bottom gently upward to the center and then also fold the top to the middle.

Let the pastry overlap slightly so the roll will be closed. The ends will still be open at this point.

TRANSFER the package onto the prepared round parchment paper and place the pastry in a circle so the ends will touch each other, leaving a hole in the middle.

CLOSE the package by sticking the ends together with a bit of water. Use a fork to poke holes in the top of the puff pastry.
