This was my first and failed pumpkin magic cake. It was under baked and batter was not set. So you really have to monitor while baking.
I am glad that i tried with durian flavour, it tasted nice after chilled, like eating durian kuih, durian custard and durian sponge cake ^_^ I cut this cake after chilled for 3 hours, so the custard still not really set, so prefer to chill this cake for overnight.
Step by step on how to make this cake
Durian Magic Cake榴莲魔法蛋糕*for a 6” square pan or round pan , I used loaf pan 22cm top,19cm bottom, 7cm height3 egg yolks (large or A size)95 g castor sugar90g durian puree ( this is weight after strain the durian flesh, leaving behind the fibres)85g cake flour½ tbsp water ~5g370g fresh milk93g unsalted butter（melted)
3 egg white (large or A size)A pinch of saltMethod:.1. Firstly, preheated oven to 160 degrees。2. Place egg yolk and sugar in a mixing bowl, and use a balloon whisk and whisk until light and pale.3. Add melted butter and durian puree, stir to mix well. Then sift in cake flour, stir to combine well.4. Mix in water, then gradually add in fresh milk and use a balloon whisk to mix well until incorporated. At this time, the batter is watery.5. In another clean mixing bowl, beat egg white and salt until stiff peak formed.6. Gently fold in meringue into egg yolk batter into 3 batches, use balloon whisk to gently stir the meringue to mix with egg yolk batter, then use a silicone spatula to fold from bottom and mix well. Do not over mixed, and it is ok when you still seeing meringue bubbles on top. The batter still watery.7. Pour batter into a lined cake pan (do not use a removable bottom cake pan as the batter is watery, line paper on the side and bottom), bake in preheated oven at 160C for 35mins at middle rack (when you see top turned golden brown), then reduce to 150C for 15-20mins. Do not over bake this cake, the centre should be a little moving once you shake the cake pan. Every oven is difference, please monitor during baking when you try for the first time. I also tried with 6" round pan, bake at 160C for 45mins (when the top turned golden brown), then reduce to 150C for 15mins at middle rack.8. Cool the pan on a wire rack at room temperature, then chill for at least 3 hours, prefer overnight to let it set well. Lift the cake from cake pan by holding the baking paper. To have nice smooth cut, warm the knife with hot water and clean knife after each cut.
