Durian Puffs

I have some frozen durian pulps sitting in my freezer. It's about time to use them up. So here you go, durian puffs. My whole house smell of durian now. When eaten cold, this is a really yummy dessert. As the durian itself is already sweet, I did not add any sugar at all for this puffs.

For the choux pastry, please refer to my cream puff recipe here. For the durian fillings, this is my own trial and error recipe.

Durian Fillings

200 or 250 ml of non-diary whipping cream
equivalent amount of durian pulps
10 gm of gelatine powder
3 tbsp of hot water to dissolve gelatine powder

Whip up whipping cream to a soft peak.
Add in durian pulps and melted gelatine powder and mix well.
Put fillings in a piping bag and pipe it out into the baked choux pastry. If you like, you can just spoon the fillings into the pastry too.
Dust the top of the pastry with some snow powder and leave it in fridge to chill before serving.
(If you leave it in freezer, it will taste like eating durian puffs ice-cream.)

yummy! looks great! i've never actually tried durian before....I've heard they smell weird, but I'm willing to try anything! wish I knew how to get some in the US

Hugbear said...

Jestina, ya, homemade is always the best, can stuff more filling.

diddy, eating durian is an acquired taste. It's either you like it or you hate it. For many locals here in Singapore, we love it. My Filipina domestic helper doesn't hate it but doesn't like it either. LOL Her comment was, durian's taste and smell is too strong for her to handle.

Hi Diana, thanks for dropping by. No bakes from you since the holiday is here?

Dls said...

OMG! i been wanting to learn how to make durian puff and so glad you show it!!!! i hope to make some when i get hold of the durians... by the way,is it possible to use dairy whipping cream to the durian filling?

is gelantine leaf instead of powder able to do the trick as well?

i wonder where to get the non-dairy whipping cream other than phoon huat?

so sorry i got many questions! heheehe ..hope can hear from you sooN!

Hugbear said...

Hi Dls, it is possible to use diary whipping cream but I would suggest using non-diary as it will not be to overly rich. You can also use gelatine leaf but I am not sure how much you need to use though. You can get Pour n Whip from Cold Storage or Sun Lik if you need some non-diary whipping cream.

Amy said...

Thanks Lee, I finally tried your durian puff recipe today, it's simply DIVINE! It taste much healthier and yummier than store bought. Appreciate you sharing...

babygirl said...

hi.. this is my first time viewing your blog.. i love it lots!! especially the photos.. i gonna try the durian puffs soon! Anyway how long can i store the durian puffs? or do i need to consume within a day?

Hugbear said...

Hi Babygirl, keep the durian puffs in the freezer and it can be stored for up to two weeks. If it's in the normal fridge compartment, then try to consume it within 3 to 4 days.

Babygirl said...

Hi Hugbear.. I have tried to make your durian puffs as well as the mango pudding.. Its was great! My family loves it too. Really thanks for your recipe. Hmmm.. when i free i sure go try out more of your recipe.. They looks delicious! haha..

Erm.. gonna ask you about the sugar paste.. What is "WILTON" colour paste? Where can i get it? At Phoon Huat? Looking forward to your reply..

whao! your durian puffs look so good! btw, i have durain puree in the freezer is it the same as durian pulps?

Hugbear said...

The durian pulps is just durian flesh. I did not puree it as I want to be able to eat the whole chunk of durian flesh. So if you have durian puree and it is not too watery, you can use it too.

Hi, it is great to have found u blog today. Can i know whether i can o,it the gelatine when i make the durian pulps with whip cream?

Lileeng said...

I used your recipe over the weekend and the puffs came out GREAT! Family loved it and asked me to make more! Thanks for sharing the recipe. I also used 200ml non-diary whipped cream + 2 tbsp cocoa powder and whipped them to use as filling, as my girl doesn't like durian. Tasted very good too.

Dawn said...

I came across your blog and saw this recipe for Durian Cream Puff. I make them during weekend, they are really delicious. It taste even better if the puff is put in the freezer. Tks sharing the recipe

Hi, thanks for posting this recipe! I can't seem to find any gelatine powder in the supermarkets around my house. Can I substitute it with agar-agar powder instead?

Hugbear said...

Actually I am not too sure if you can use agar agar powder instead. It is easier to melt gelatine with some hot water then agar agar powder though. Most shops that sell bakery stuff should have gelatine powder.

Hi Lee Lee,
