Durian Mousse Cake

This is the second cake I made for our prenatal class gathering last week (the other one was a graduation cake). Not everyone liked durian so in order not to contaminate my friend’s fridge,  the cake container was wrapped in two big plastic bags when I brought this exotic treat over. Fresh durian is expensive in Toronto so my durian treats are mostly made with frozen durian. Let me know how yours go if you use fresh ones.

這是EC為產前班同學聚會準備的第二個蛋糕(另一個是畢業蛋糕),榴槤並非人人喜愛,所以為免沾污朋友家中雪櫃,EC為蛋糕盒裹上兩層膠袋避免氣體洩漏!多倫多的新鮮榴槤價值不菲,EC通常選用原個冰鮮榴槤泡製甜品,若你使用新鮮榴槤做此蛋糕,別忘記留言告訴EC效果如何哦!

Directions 做法

For the ake 蛋糕

Sift together the flour, baking powder (if using) and sugar into a mixing bowl. Mix well and make a well in the center. Add oil, milk, egg yolks, and vanilla bean paste to the well and whisk gently until combined. Set aside.
低筋麵粉、泡打粉(如用)及糖混合過篩放入鋼盆中,將粉往周圍撥成粉牆狀,將油、牛奶、蛋黃及雲尼拿醬放在粉牆中央攪拌成蛋黃糊備用。

In a clean, separate mixing bowl, whip egg whites with an electric mixer until foamy. Add cream of tartar (to stabilize the meringue) and continue beating until soft peaks. Then slowly add sugar in batches and continue beating until glossy and firm peaks. Scoop about one third of the meringue to the yolk mixture and mix well to lighten. Then pour this back to the remaining meringue. Fold gently and thoroughly until you see no streaks of white.
取另一清潔的鋼盆放入蛋白,用電動打蛋器將蛋白打至起泡,加入他他粉繼續打至泡泡變細密,分次加糖打至企身(蛋白霜成尖角不會下垂),將三分一蛋白霜混入蛋黃糊中充份拌勻,再將麵糊倒入餘下的蛋白霜中輕手以切拌方法(fold in)混合至麵糊成均一的顔色。

Pour batter into cake pan and smooth top with a spatula. Tap cake pan against the kitchen counter several times to get rid of any large air bubbles. Bake in a 325°F/160°C preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of cake comes out clean, about 20 to 25 minutes for my oven. Invert the cake pan and cool on a cooling rack. Once cooled, unmold cake then slice it into two 3/4-inch layers. Trim cake layers so that they are slightly smaller than the cake ring. Set aside.
將麵糊倒入模中,用刮刀抹平麵糊表面,將模往枱上輕敲幾下敲出較大的氣泡,放入325°F/160°C預熱焗爐焗至竹籤插入取出不沾麵糊,約20-25分鐘,取出倒扣放涼後甩模並切成兩片3/4吋厚片,把蛋糕片修剪成比慕絲圈少一點的圓形備用。

For the durian mousse 榴槤慕絲

Chill mixing bowl and the whisk attachment in the freezer for at least 10 minutes. Bloom the gelatin by sprinkling it over 40 g of the milk and set aside for 5 minutes. Warm mixture in the microwave or sit the bowl in hot water until gelatin is dissolved. Set aside.
將鋼盆及打蛋器配件放冰箱至少十分鐘,小碗中放魚膠粉和40克牛奶拌勻,靜置五分鐘後隔熱水坐溶或放微波爐叮溶備用。

With a food processor, process durian flesh, sugar and the remaining 60 g of milk until smooth and creamy. Scrape mixture into a bowl. Stir in gelatin mixture.
將榴槤肉、糖和餘下60克牛奶放入食物處理器中打至幼滑後倒在大碗中,加入魚膠水充分拌匀。

With an electric mixer, beat whipping cream in the chilled mixing bowl until soft peaks . Whisk one-third of the whipped cream into the durian mixture to lighten. Then fold in the remaining whipped cream with a spatula until combined.
淡忌廉放在預先雪凍的鋼盆中用電動打蛋器打發至軟身,將三份一淡忌廉與榴槤糊混合,再加餘下淡忌廉用膠刮輕手以切拌手法混合。

To Assemble

Wrap bottom of the cake ring with plastic wrap. Place a cake layer into the ring. Pour half of the durian mousse over the cake layer. Top with another cake layer then fill the ring with remaining mousse. Tap ring on the counter several times to remove any large air bubbles. Smooth top with an offset spatula. Refrigerate until mousse is set.
慕絲圈底部包上保鮮紙,放入一塊蛋糕片 ,將一半榴槤慕絲倒進圈中蛋糕片上,放上另一塊蛋糕片再倒進餘下慕絲,在枱上敲幾下將大氣泡震出,用抹刀抹平表面,冷藏至慕絲凝固。

Unmold cake by heating the ring with a hairdryer or wrapping it with a warm towel. Decorate cake with modeling chocolate roses or fresh fruits.
用風筒吹或用熱毛巾包裹慕絲圈便可脫模,放上造型朱古力玫瑰花或以新鮮生果裝飾蛋糕即成。
