Durian Doughnut Recipe, How to Make Durian Doughnut
If you have the chance to go near a durian, an exotic fruit largely produced in South-east Asia, I bet you will never forget your experience. Either you repulse it, or you love it, though there are people who take the middle stand.
Alfred Russel Wallace, a British naturalist and explorer described durian well :
“It is neither acid nor sweet nor juicy; yet it wants neither of these qualities, for it is in itself perfect...the more you eat of it the less you feel inclined to stop. In fact, to eat durians is a new sensation worth a voyage to the East to experience."
If you have tried the durian doughnut in “The Big Apple” doughnut specialty shop, and loved it, and you are thinking of trying to make it yourself, here is the recipe:
Durian Doughnut Recipe
Ingredients for Durian Fillings
200g durian flesh
60g whipping cream
Pinch of salt
2 tbsp icing sugar (or confectioner’s sugar / powdered sugar)
Ingredients for Dough
400g high protein flour
80g plain flour
20g custard powder
60g castor sugar
¼ tsp salt
260 ml lukewarm water
2 tbsp fresh milk
1. Sift the high protein flour, plain flour, sugar, salt and yeast into a mixing bowl.
2. Lightly beat the 2 eggs.
3. Add the eggs, lukewarm water, butter and milk into the flour ingredient in the mixing bowl.
4. Using the electric mixer, beat the mixed ingredients over low speed until you get a soft and smooth dough.
5. Cover the bowl with a damp tea towel and leave it aside for 45 minutes, or until the dough has doubled in size.
6. While waiting for the dough to rise, mix all the filling ingredients together and stir well.
7. When the dough is ready, divide the dough into small, equal portions. The size of each portion should be able to fit into your cup cake baking tray. (However, if you do not have a cup cake baking tray, you can use the ordinary baking tray. In this case, the size of the dough is up to your estimation or preferences.)
8. For each portion of the dough, roll the dough flat, and scoop a teaspoon of durian filling onto the flattened dough and wrap the filling up neatly. Shape it into small balls and place it on a floured cup cake baking tray.
9. Cover with cling film, wrap and leave aside to proof until the dough doubled in size.
10. When the dough has doubled in size, preheat the oven at 180 degree Celsius.
11. Remove the cling film wrap on the dough, and to create the durian thorn effect, use a pair of sharp scissors, snip the surface to make thorn-like effect.
12. Bake the dough in the preheated oven at 180 degree Celsius for 15 minutes or until the doughnut turn golden brown. Remove the doughnut from the over and brush the surface with a little milk immediately.
13. Serve with tea or coffee.
What is the difference between Whipping Cream and Whipped Cream ?
Whipping cream is cream that is ready to be whipped. In another word, if you whip the whipping cream you buy from a shop, and whip it with an electric mixer, you get the whipped cream.
