Thanks to the hazy weather for the passed few weeks (better now), I was trapped at home and was very very bored. :(
I thought since I have nothing to do, why not do some experimentations in the kitchen? Nope, I'm not planning to blow up the kitchen.
I was actually eyeing the durian that daddy bought. I removed the seeds and blended the durian flesh to get a smooth durian purée which I couldn't resist scooping a few right into my mouth.
Then I thought, why not a flourless durian cake? To be honest, at that point of time I have no idea whether this would work out, if it doesn't all my precious durian would goes to waste!!! T.T
So with some baking knowledges and imaginary, using the simplest ingredients..
Presenting a successful flourless durian cake!
200 g durian purée
2 tbsp sugar
1. Preheat oven to 180C.
2. Using a cake mixer, whisk eggs and sugar till light and creamy.
3. Add in the durian purée and whisk till well combined.
4. Pour the durian batter into a line pan (I used an aluminium baking tray) and bake at 180C for 30 mins or when the skewer comes out clean.
As simple as the recipe sounds, I've never expected a successful attempt (thus the use of disposable baking tray)
Wondering how the cake tasted like? 2 words, soft and moist. I was overjoyed that the smell of durian totally masked the burned smell (caused by the haze) in the air. The smell of heaven for sure. <3
Close up to this super moist flourless durian cake.
The family even 'complained' that I left them a piece each only. Oops! Wells, I have to taste-try one piece right? Also, as the baker I get to have additional pieces isn't it? Hee.. In conclusion, get me more durian next time.
