Durian CheeseCake, Indulgence ~榴莲乳酪蛋糕,飘香

Are you a fan of Durian?? If you say YES, you must try this!
I knew some people don't like it and some LOVE it!! Either you are the one who LOVE it or the one who TOTALly HATE it!! Hahaha!! 
Anyway, my family is a big fan of Durian. This is a treat for them since i have a box of frozen durian in the freeze. 'Shh!! i always have a box of durian standby in the freezer...lol"

This durian cheesecake is easy to whip up. It is a heavy type of cheesecake. It is rich, smooth and i like the addition of coconut milk in it. Coconut milk pair so well with durian. Do you like durian dodol? The taste is something like that but with rich thick and smooth texture from cream cheese and durian puree.

Durian Cheesecake

Just a simple shake of cocoa powder will give a pretty deco too.

Biscuit base add texture and flavor to the cake too.
This durian cheesecake yields a good portions of 12 pieces.

Durian is very mysterious! ....

What is so mysterious about it then?? first opening it is already very hard..with a cleaver..:0
Then we don't know whether it is a white or a yellow flesh..lol
It is yellow..yeah!! The durian puree used in this cake, are from 2 whole durian.
Durian, durian, durian, would you like to have a piece?  ; )

    Aside, how long can we keep the cake? Is it okay to bake 3-4 days before the day I want it to be consumed or not advisable?

    Also, is it ok that I used the cold refrigerated whipping cream instead of UHT?
