He brought some to his friends and still left a lot. We ate then for two days and kept the remaining in the fridge. I wanted to bake this when I first saw the recipe but every time my dad bought durian, we will finish them at one go. Now is the time…haha, I have been waited this day for too long.
The cake turns out great, it is smooth like ice-cream but the cheese not strong enough too taste, maybe the durian flavour covers up the cheese. However, it is quite good. My dad didn’t eat cheesecake but he can accept this.
Unfortunately, when I make the topping, I forgot to add an egg into the mixture and straight spread the mixture on the cake. I need to spoon out the mixture carefully from top of the cake then do it again, haiz, stupid pineapple!!!
However, I did it at the end ^^
Here is the recipe, adapted from Y3K recipe book with minor changes
