Very unusual combination! Maybe can do a Durian Mille Crepe. Just saw it from Sonia's. Drooling! :)

Hi Jean & Jasmine, I always buy durian from a regular supplier at Toa Payoh Central Blk 183 #01-306. They do delivery too. The stall has a branch at Geylang Lor 36 too. Stall name is Fruit Top 1, HP:98894906 (Ah Yi). Those durian that I used in my cakes are deseeded sold in 2 kg per pack at S$20. Quality very good and fresh.

Wen said...

Hi Fong, thanks for stopping by! I love all the dishes over at your blog, all looks so yummy!

Wen said...

Hi Ellena, look forward to see your bake. BTW do not reduce the sugar in this recipe as it's not very sweet at all.

Wen said...

Hi Cathy, haha... I'm not a durian lover but my family is. I like to use it in dessert instead of eating it fresh.

Wen said...

Hi SSB, I saw that too. I bet a durian version will be as good too.

busygran said...

Very nice durian chiffon. I would throw in some durian fudge and it would be out of this world for me!

Honey Bee Sweets said...

Oh wow, what a special flavor! Indeed worth a try. Thanks for sharing this. ;)

Wen said...

Thanks Judy! Thanks for the idea too!

hanushi said...

This is wonderfully baked, Wen!! Durian chiffon with pandan certainly get me interested... :)

Passionate About Baking said...

I like the height of your cake. It stands tall and nice! How does this taste like? More pandan or more durian?
Hey, your durian flesh sounds really reasonable! Thanks for the contact. I'll quote you when I go to the supplier! Heehee...

Wen said...

Hi Bee & hanushi, thanks! The cake taste more durian than Pandan.

Wen said...

Hi Judy, the cake taste more durian than pandan! You must quote my aunt name - Ms Chua. Usually she is the one who call to order.

DG said...

Very unusual combination, did the cake taste like durian, but smell like pandan ?... hahaha ... I just curious, cause what I know that everytime I saw people (in Indonesia) carrying durian thru the airport check-in (for domestic flight), they will put lots of pandan leaves surronding the durian box, to get rid of the smell.

Wen, your cake as usual always perfectly baked. I have never bake durian cake before, just wondering do the taste still remain, or similar to no bake durian cake. Thanks in advance.

Angie's Recipes said...

How soft and spongy!

Wen said...

Hi Doris, for this chiffon the durian taste is quite noticable with mild pandan fragrant because I only added 1/2 tsp paste. If you want more durian flavour just omit the pandan paste.

Wen said...

Angie, thanks!

edith said...

NOw can I come over for a piece? Big fan of durian!

Joyce @ Chunky Cooky said...

Interesting to combine durian with pandan ! should be very nice... both are my favourites ! But durians now are few and expensive, not like last time !

Happy Homebaker said...

Lovely chiffon cake! Thanks for sharing the recipe, will love to make this durian cake for my son :)

MaryMoh said...

With durian? I will eat the whole cake :D

Anncoo said...

Your durian chiffon looks so soft and spongy. Is it too late to have slice?

Jo said...

Oooh durian chiffon, I definitely cannot resist. I wish my chiffon could rise as high as yours .. but alas!

Wen said...

Edith, sure!

Joyce, I think now durian is in season. You may want to buy some to keep.

HHB, thanks! Hope your son will like it.

Mary, this cake is quite light & not too sweet so it's alright to eat the whole cake...lol!

Ann & Jo, thanks for the compliments!

Wen said...

Thanks Doris! You are so sweet!

Wen said...

Hi cakewhiz, thanks for stopping by! Your cakes all so pretty!

wensdelight said...

Mine was about $10 per kg usually in 2 kg pack. The quality was pretty good. Usually when my family ordered durian then I will order a pack of the flesh so I'm not sure will they deliver for just that. Maybe you have to call and check.

Candeelim said...

Hi wen, is the quality of the durian flesh that u used as good as those used by Richard in his class? He bought from 717 cost $20 per kg. Does the durian flesh supplier deliver for 2kg durian flesh order? Thank

Can
