These soft pastries filled with durian and cream are pillowy and melt-in-your-mouth – a must-try for any durian fanatic. The recipe is pretty simple too, so even inexperienced cooks will be able to make these durian crepes easily!


  • 300g durian
  • 300g whipping cream
  • 50g tapioca flour
  • 15g custard powder
  • 1 tbsp icing sugar
  • 30g all-purpose flour
  • 150ml water
  • 65ml milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp oil

Separate the durian flesh from the seed and use a fork to mash the flesh into a thick paste. Set aside.


Add whipping cream to a bowl. Use a mixer to whip mixture till it stiffens . Set aside.


Add to a bowl tapioca flour, custard powder, icing sugar, all-purpose flour and mix well. Add water to the bowl and mix well, forming a pale yellow batter.


Add milk and egg to the batter, stirring well in between.


Strain the mixture through a metal sieve to remove any sediments.


Glaze a pan with oil and add a thin layer of batter to the pan. Gently remove the crepe once it solidifies.


It’s time to assemble your durian crepe. Add a spoonful each of whipped cream and durian paste to the centre of the crepe and fold in the corners to form a “pillow”, and you are done. Repeat the steps until you form all your durian crepes.
