Durian is definitely the king of fruits and the favourite among Singaporeans. It is made into many variations of dessert. This is a cake recipe that is highly raved and requested by my friends and family for birthdays! Mousse can be made in advance and kept in fridge for later use. You can also make it into a durian pengyat version!
