Posted by Sweeter side of life at 14:53:00

Hey! This cake was done last week, i didn't have time to post about it neither do i have time to bake :(

The base tasted really good!! it was crunchy and not soggy at all. Pardon me for MIA for so long, even now as i am writing this, i am half awake. Yeap, here's the recipe

Makes a 23 cm cake, I used a 21 cm spring form pan


90g Butter, diced
100g Digestive biscuit
1 Tbs Brown sugar
30g Cocoa powder
50g Cornflakes(i used cheerios, unsweetened)
100g Oreo cookie without cream(i used this because i didn't have enough digestive)

Process everything except butter in the food processor until finely grounded
Melt butter in non stick pan
Turn off heat and mix in crushed cookies
Press mixture into bottom of pan and chill in fridge


125g milk
1 Tbs + 80g extra sugar
2 Tbs custard powder mixed with 2 tbs milk
2 Tbs gelatine dissolved in 120g water
500g Durian flesh,mashed
250g cream cheese, diced
300ml thickened cream (i used 200ml cream + 100ml non-fat plain yogurt)

Stir in sugar to milk in a pot till dissolved
Bring the mixture to a boil and over a small fire
Pour in custard mixture while stirring CONTINUOUSLY untill thickened and smooth.
Remove from heat and stir in gelatin, set aside
Beat cream cheese with extra sugar till smooth
Blend in cream and mix in durian flesh
Pour over crust in pan and cover with cling wrap
Chill in fridge for 6 hours or over night.

:D Yay i did it! They taste good when frozen too! Like durian ice cream :))
