Durian Delights from The Durian Bakery Singapore!

Product Review
i

Calling all Durian lovers in Singapore! 

Love it or hate it, durians are pretty hard to ignore aren't they? The King of Fruits typically floods the markets of Singapore between June and September and this would be the best time to enjoy the fruit and all the goodies made with it. But if you haven't yet then don't fret....you still aren't too late!

From initially being skeptical of the fruit to developing a liking and profound respect for it, my relationship with durian has evolved over the years. I have many friends who are durian obsessed but on the other hand, I have a some who either cannot stomach it or are petrified to try! I believe that sampling durian should be on everyone's bucket list. This misunderstood fruit has a lot to offer and definitely deserves more than one chance. 

To save you the trouble of deliberating where to go to get your durian fix this year, Best In Singapore carefully curated a list and one among their recommendations is The Durian Bakery. This is an expert bakery that specializes in baking delicious, rich durian goods. The kind folks at The Durian Bakery sent me some of their products to sample and review. I received the goodies last week, stuffed my face with them, shared them with family and friends and am bringing the detailed review to you today. 

Their website is very easy to navigate. There are some amazing durian-based cakes and patisseries to choose from. 

I scheduled the delivery on a weekend afternoon. I received my order within the allotted time slot. I liked the simple yet elegant box that it came in and how well everything was packed. 



This bundle consisted of,
1x box of 12 D24 Durian Choux Puff
1x box of 6 D24 Snowy Mochi
1x pcs of Dark Choco MSW Mousse


The Durian Choux Puffs looked appetizing. They were light airy choux puff pastries generously filled with a luscious and decadent durian filling made using the thick and creamy D24. Both the pastry and the filling were top notch in terms of taste and texture. 



I love mochi and so I was eager to try these. The soft and squidgy Snowy Mochis had a delicate outer covering and a soft core again, generously filled with the goodness of the luscious D24. Yummy! 


The Dark Choco Musang King Mousse was the one that piqued my interest the most. It consisted of a delicate dome of dark chocolate dusted with gold encasing a fresh and silky musang king durian mousse and a durian core sitting on a base of hazelnut palette feuilletine. 

The natural bittersweet notes of the durian complemented the rich dark chocolate and the crunchy base nicely contrasted the texture of the smooth filling. Look at the cross-section and you can appreciate all the individual components. 




This cake had the 'wow' factor going for it! One of their specialities, this is a 6″ dark chocolate fudge drip cake (1 kg) infused with mao shan wang core. This intensely rich cake is made with their signature MSW SilkyGold Durian Puree which results in an incredibly creamy, delicious and satisfying durian experience. I was surprised how well chocolate and durian paired together. And I loved how the knife went smoothly through all the layers so I was able to cut clean slices where each layer could be appreciated. You can cut this cake into 8 slices and it is perfect for sharing. 

Highly recommended!




What I liked about all the products were their freshness, the melt-in-the-mouth quality of the durian puree that was used and the fact that you could tell that premium ingredients had been used. In addition to the goodies you see in this post, some of their other specialities include the Mao Shan Wang Durian Mille Crepe Cake, D24 Durian Swiss Roll, Mao Shan Wang Burnt Cheesecake and Black Forest Dark Cherry with Mao Shang Wang Core. 

If I had to recommend them to a durian lover or even someone looking to try durian for the first time, I would without a shred of hesitation!
