Non Baked Durian Cheesecake

Made this non baked durian cheesecake sometimes ago to clear off the last batch of durian flesh sitting in my freezer. This cheesecake is really yummy as it filled with strong durian fragrant. The texture is smooth and creamy! By adding nuts and choc crunch, it further enhance the texture and flavour too. I brought almost the whole cake to office as my family don't fancy cheesecake. My colleagues all love it and some of them even ask for second helping. I will definitely make this again!

Recipe adapted and modified from Bakericious:
Ingredients :
Biscuit Base
150g Digestive Biscuits (Crushed)
70g melted butter
Mix biscuit crumbs and melted butter together and press into an 8" loose bottom tin. Chill it till it hardened.

Durian Cream Cheese Filling:
350g Cream cheese
60g Caster sugar
350g Durian flesh (add in 1 tbsp of sugar and cooked over a saucepan till it heated through, set aside to cool)
350g Whipping cream (dairy)
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
1 tbsp Gelatin
3 tbsp Water
50g Chopped pistachio (toasted)
50g Valrhona chocolate crunch

Method :
1. Soaked gelatine with water for 5 mins, melt it over a pot of simmering hot water/microwave. Set aside.
2. Whip up the whipping cream & vanilla extract until thicken, transfer it to a bowl. Leave it in the fridge till ready to use.
3. Using the same mixing bowl to beat the cream cheese and sugar on high speed till smooth, stir in the gelatine mixture.
4. Stir in cooked durian flesh and fold in whipped cream till well mix.
5. Pour the mixture into the biscuit base, sprinkle chopped pistachio and choc crunch all over. Chill or freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Thanks for trying out the recipe! Sorry to read about your experience but anyway is the thought that count! I'm very sure your dad appreciate your effort.  The next time if you are making non baked cheesecake you can try freezing it first if you need to bring it out.

Actually I wanted to leave a comment over at your blog but I don' t know why simply can't sign in.

 Hi Wen,
I tried this out for Father's Day.  It turned out great initially...nothing wrong with the recipe, it was my own mistake.  Check out the story if you have the time :)

Thanks for the advice :)

It's non baked so I think it tend to be a bit softer and mousse type. Usually I will freeze about half hour before serving.

Hi Wen,

Thank for sharing the recipe. Like the way you decorate the cake. I tried out this recipe yesterday and it turned out a bit soft and the texture of the cheesecake like ice cream. Is it normal? Please advise.
