30∙04∙2021 》Durian Cheesecake 👀
━ ━ ━ ━ ━
A church auntie gifted me with some durian so I got to try it for the first time – the taste itself I love 🤩 But first thing you notice is the smell which is quite strong, so I’m glad we cut it open outside of the house 🥴

She gave me a few extra pieces and so I thought I’d try to make a cheesecake out of it – When I told some of my friends about the idea a lot of them told me durian isn’t supposed to be mixed with so many flavours ahahah, but I wanted to try it anyways.

Once the cheesecake was baked I made a lemon buttercream/frosting and toasted some lemom zest with coconut oil to sprinkle on the top 🍋

One thing I’ll say about the cheesecake was the smell once it was done – all I could smell was a similar scent to onions which worried me a lot 😂 The taste itself was very interesting; on first bite I wasn’t sure if it tasted good, BUT as you continue to eat it becomes better and better, can I say moreish?

I shared it out with some friends and though they were skeptical about it, I got some messages later saying how despite the smell it tasted so good for them as well – one friend who didnt eat durian even ended up eating 2 slices 💀 I’d say 8/10 people enjoyed the taste which was more than I expected, but soo glad it worked out 🤧

Don’t know how soon I’d be getting my hands on some more durian but this was a fun idea to try ✨
