A Loving Durian Pancake


I was surprised and delighted when Anthony gave me a box full of warm freshly made durian pancakes lovingly created by his mum. As he passed me the bag, I could immediately catch the whiff of the sweet warm fruit as it permeated through the air. I knew this was going to be delicious.


While these durian pancakes may look humble, each piece has been made delicately by Aunty.  The layer of batter is even throughout with a fine blend of fresh durian within. And they were also carefully cooked, ensuring a deep warm brown colour on the outside.


A simple tea time delicacy, which has now become my third breakfast for the day. Yummy. And yes I have the recipe for it at the bottom of the article. Courtesy of Anthony’s mum =)


A Special Durian Pancake

  • 365ml milk
  • 2-3 eggs
  • 85g sugar
  • 150-200g self raising flour
  • Fresh durian meat. About 10 seeds worth.
  1. Mix well together the milk, eggs and sugar.
  2. Blend the durian flesh until fine, removing any lumps in the process.
  3. Add in the self raising flour to the mix of milk, eggs and sugar. Stir well to form a smooth batter.
  4. Spoon in 2 tablespoons worth of blended durian meat into the batter, mixing it thoroughly. Leave to set for 1/2 hour
  5. Heat non stick pan.
  6. Scoop 1.5 tablespoon of batter onto pan and form a circle shape with the spoon.
  7. Once the underside is golden brown, remove from heat.
  8. Scoop in about 2 teaspoons of blended durian meat onto the pancake. Fold the pancake in half to seal the meat within.
  9. Repeat steps 6-8 to make about 20 pancakes.
  10. Serve with English Tea!

Thank You Anthony’s mummy! I enjoyed the loving durian pancakes =)
