Durian Mousse Cake

I've got an 'unofficial' cake order from my aunt, for her best friend. Once again, i used a different sponge cake recipe, and the durian fillings is also different from the earlier durian cake i made. The 'spirit' of my baking blog is to try as many recipes as possible. Usually once i found a perfect recipe, i'll keep trying to do it over and over again, though i may not post it in my blog. The other problem, which i think is difficult to overcome, is to try out recipes that you may not even like it. Like any other things in life, if you do not have the passion for it, you won't do well. So far, i've not gone into that cos there are too many recipes i like and i've yet to try out.

This time round, i use Traditional Sponge Cake recipe from Passionbaker, and Durian Mousse recipe from Aunty Yochana (again!). The latter has endless and fabulous recipes for anyone who is interested in baking and making nice goodies.

Ingredients/ Methods:-

Traditional Sponge Cake
5 eggs
150g sugar (i reduced it to 120g)
120g cake flour
80g melted butter

1. Whip eggs and gradually add into sugar, until light and fluffy.
2. Fold in cake flour and mix till well blended.
3. Stir in butter and mix until well incorporated.
4. Pour into a 8' round mould.
5. Bake at 180 deg C for 30 mins.
6. Remove cake from mould immediately when baked.

Durian Mousse
400g durian flesh
100g fresh milk
30g gelatine powder
8 tbsp water
500g non-diary whip cream

1. Cook durian flesh and milk in a pot.
2. Dissolve gelatine powder with water, and add into durian mixture.
3. Cool the durian mixture before folding it into the whipped cream.

Cut the sponge cake into 3 layers, and spread the durian mousse on each layer. Decorate as desired.
