Baked my very first batch of cupcakes filled with home made Durian custard today, served it as dessert during lunch with friends, send it out to some friends that loves durian and last but not least enjoying it with my daughter for tea when she’s back from school, can’t get enough of it!
Regarded as “King of the Fruit” in South East Asia, Durian has distinctive odour that is very strong, pleasantly sweet fragrance to some people but others find the aroma overpowering and revolting. I tried durian for the first time when we live in Bangkok, Thailand several years back, it was served as pancake filling. There was no trace of the over powering odour and it has such a sweet and creamy taste that surprisingly nice and enjoyable. My daughter grow a liking for the unusual taste as well, she is truly Mini Me 🙂
Found some sweet fragrance durian in the farmers market here in Manila, I’ve made custard out of it then store it in a mason jar in the fridge overnight. Baked vanilla cupcakes earlier today, filled it up with the durian custard and frost it with cream cheese frosting, absolutely delicious.
