Durian Bavarios Cake

happy 25th birthday to you!

baked a durian bavarios cake for him, pretty challenging and tedious! some hiccups here and there, the deco wasn't very pretty...but still satisfied with the end product :)

i adapted the recipe from aunty yochana. made some changes here and there. the original recipe is available here. as always the recipe is a keeper :)

i used 3 slices of sponge for this one so that i can stuff more of the durian mousse inside!

happy happy birthday!

Vanilla Sponge cake:

1) For vanilla sponge cake, whisk all the ingredients together except the cornoil until thick and fluffy. Add in cornoil and mix till well blended. Pour mixture into 3 - 9" square trays. You can also pour it into 2 trays for a thicker sponge. Bake for 15 to 20 mins. at 175 deg C till cooked.
2) For durian mousse: Boil milk with sugar till sugar dissolves. Whisk eggs and salt lightly and pour in the hot milk mixture. Add in durian flesh and mix till smooth. Off the heat and let it cool completely.
3) Mix gelatine powder with water and let it sit for 5 mins. Microwave for 20 secs. then add into the durian mixture.
4) Whisk whip cream till fluffy. Fold into the durian mixture. Divide mixture into 2 portions.
5) Spread 1 portion of durian mousse onto 1 slice of sponge cake. Then spread the durian mousse again and then top up with the second slice of sponge cake and cover with the last layer of sponge. Chill in the fridge till set.
6) Decorate cake as desired. Enjoy!
