The chiffon is nicely baked. How is the cake taste? I've got the book, but a bit scared to bake this, cause afraid the taste of durian will change after bake.
I would like to wish you and your family a Happy Merry Christmas & Happy New Year :)

DG , the cake is taste nice however because I used frozen Durian,it isn't enough taste maybe next time I will use fresh Durian.
The cake is too moist for me, maybe I have to reduce the amount of the oil or coconut milk for next time, anyway the cake taste good. Merry Christmas and A Happy New year to you too :)
