  • Combine chopped durian flesh and coconut milk in a bowl.

  • Mix flour, water, eggs, sugar, and salt together in another bowl; mix until well-blended. Add durian mixture and mix until combined. Pour batter into prepared cake pan.

  • Set a round rack in a steamer or large wok or deep skillet over high heat. Pour in water to about 1/2 inch below the rack; bring to a boil.

  • Place cake pan on rack and cover or tent with aluminum foil, sealing edges tightly. Steam, replenishing boiling water as needed, until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Carefully remove and let cool before cutting.

We had a leftover package of dehydrated durian from a trip to Bangkok so I used it to make this cake. My partner liked it; I wasn't crazy about it. The durian was hydrated with a cup of hot water that was later used in the recipe. A bundt pan was used instead of a rectangular one. Otherwise I stayed true to the recipe and despite it being a first attempt at a steamed cake it turned out okay. We could taste the durian despite it having been dehydrated and the flavored water probably helped. After a day or two the cake slices needed to be reheated in a bath of water in order to become a dumpling consistency and edible. I wouldn't make it again. Read More
