I did a trial run last week using Agnes Chang's recipe and the cake turned out to be perfect!!! The texture of the cake is fine and moist. No doubt the durian was tasteless but somehow the cake turned out rather fragrant. This durian cake recipe is really a winner!
All test bunnies loved the cake, well perhaps they are all durian lovers heh.
Tropical Durian Cake
200g caster sugar
180g durian flesh, added (I've used 250g)
4 tbsp milk
1/2 tsp durian essence, optional (omitted)
240g self-raising flour, sifted
1 tbsp custard powder, sifted (omitted)
1/4 tsp salt
1. Cream (A) till light. Add eggs one at a time, creaming well after each addition.
2. Fold in half of (B) and half of (C) mixture till well combined. Fold in remaining (B) and (C) mixture till well mixed.
3. Pour cake mixture into a lined and greased 20cm (8") round baking tin. Bake in pre-heated oven at 180C for about 45-50 mins until golden brown and cooked (I've used 2 loaf tins and only needed 40 mins to cook).
4. Remove cake, leave to cool, cut into pieces and serve as snack.
