I bought this 2 Kg. tub of frozen Durian Meat (Premium quality) from Pastry Mart. Pte. Ltd. and it's simply delicious. My dh and staff thought I bought fresh Premium Quality durians from the Durian Stall and gave the Thumbs up for the Durian Cheesecake. THANKS "Sharon" for this.....*Wink*

You mind me asking which recipe did you use?

I can imagine the silky smooth feel of the cake and also the smell of durian from here :) just by looking at your pictures.

hi aunty YO!

thanks for the recipe... I simply love durian and cream cheese... will try this out!

by the way, can i get durian puree else where like PH or *where*... also, if i buy real durians and scrap off the meat, do you think this will work (as in keeping the cake for 1 - 2 days)? ...

Thanks in advance...

Laterz,
Jacqueline

yochana said...

hi jacqueline.


You can buy durians, scrap off the meat and then freeze it in the freezer and it can be kept for weeks or more.

shan said...

Hi Lucy,

Most 2 Kg block Cream Cheese is about $18 - $20 exclusive of GST.

Pastry Mart sells LACTOS CREAM CHEESE. $18.00 for 2 Kg. Block.

Fanny said...

Hello aunty, would u explain to me the meaning of steam bake? In my mind, steam bake is just like put your baking tray into another tray with water filling. is that correct?

yochana said...

Hi Fanny,

Place a tray of water into the oven then pour your cheesecake into the water and bake.

Wrap your cheesecake with aluminium foil to prevent water from seeping in.

Fanny said...

Ok...i got it. Thank you :)

Quinn said...

Can I replace coconut milk/evaporated milk with full cream milk? Also, is it alright for me to omit the topping layer?Will the filling layer be half cooked only?Don't have enough durian in hand. Thanks Aunty!

yochana said...

Hi Quinn,

Yes you can sub with fresh milk. for better taste and quality, try using Morinaga milk.
Yes you can omit the topping. Less durian is ok too. Make sure you bake to the timing that is required. A baked cheesecake normally wobbles in the center when you shake the tin (while still in the oven). Leave it inside with the oven switched off for half and hour then open the door ajar to cool it.

Wonderful recipe. My family and friends like it. However when durian mixed with cheese it is so rich and thick. Thanks

Hi,

I hv been putting myself off baking this cake as I really cant imagine cheese with durian. But I finally pluck the courage to try it out today without the topping tho. I must say, I am surprised that the taste turned out so yummy. My family and friends love it. I hv a big bite of the cake hahaha

A BIG thank you to you :)

Hv a great weekend, RC

yochana said...

Oh Gosh RC,

Yesterday finally baked this mouth watering cake. It turned out just perfect. I used mixtures of left over cho-chip cookies, cream cracker biscuit & cho merrie biscuit to make a thicker base. The cake tastes even better when chilled.
Tks Aunty Yochana.

Hi Aunty Yochana,

I'm thinking of adding more durian into the cake without changing the portion of the rest of the ingredients. Will it affect the cake? Thanks!
