This is a light butter cake with scent of durian, the King of Fruit.
Durian Butter Cake
120g durian flesh (I used 150g)
60ml/4 tbsp milk (I used 5 tbsp)
40g plain flour (I used bread flour)
250g butter (I used salted)
220g sugar (I used 170g)
5 large eggs (approx. 300g without shell)
200g plain flour (I used cake flour)
50g custard powder (I used 30g + 20g corn flour)
½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
1) Blend durian flesh with milk till smooth. Add the flour in (A) and mix
2) Cream (B) till light and fluffy.
3) Add (C), one at a time, mix well before each addition.
4) Add durian mixture and mix till evenly blended.
5) Fold in (D) in 3 -4 addition, mix well before addition (I used the
lowest speed of my mixer and the last addition I used a plastic
spatula to fold in).
6) Pour batter in a greased and lined 8” square pan or 10” tube pan and
bake in preheated oven at 180C for about 40-45 mins (I baked at 180C
15 mins, 175C 15 mins and 165C 12 mins).

Hi Alice, your cake look very moist. Love the plate, nice design.ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful week ahead,regards.
The plate is a steal I bought from Taiwan at NT19 only !
I can smell the fragrance of durian just by looking at your cake.ReplyDelete
My house was full of durian smell when the cake was baking :)
hi Angel, wah how i wish i could make this butter cake, i love durian but my throat can never tolerate itReplyDelete
perhaps i'll just replace it with banana or pumpkin LOL
btw, u used bread flour instead of plain flour
did it make the texture better?
The bread flour makes the cake less crumbly and slightly firmer in my opinion. When baking with fruits use bread flour to cost the fruits give better result I think.
i think durian lovers will love whether it's chiffon, hokkaido etc..this durican cake must have tasted good.. rich and velvety..ReplyDelete
U are right!
i have the same question as alice, did bread flour make any different to the cake?ReplyDelete
Please read my reply to Alice. I think it makes little different.
Angel, 我今年还没吃到榴莲呢。。。 就先吃你的榴莲蛋糕吧 :DReplyDelete
Oh wow! I know I will love this cake very much. But too bad my Mum gets dizzy when she smells durian. Hah! Hah!ReplyDelete
Make this for urself and make ur mum another cake solve the problem .
