125g self raising flour

100g plain flour

1 tsp baking powder

½ tsp salt

2 tbsp milk

Optional: ½ vanilla pod, seeds scraped

Cooking Method

Step 1

1. Preheat the oven to 180°c / fan 160°c / gas 4. Lightly grease a 2lb loaf tin and line with baking parchment.

Step 2

2. Using a fork, lightly mash the durian flesh in a bowl, or pull apart until slightly stringy and in small pieces.

Step 3

3. Using a stand mixer, cream together the butter and the sugar until smooth. Next add the eggs and mix on a low speed until full combined.

Step 4

4. Sift together the flours, baking powder and salt. Slowly add this to the butter mixture, mixing on a low-medium speed until fully combined. If using a vanilla pod, add the seeds to the mixture at this point. Add the milk and beat on a high speed for 1 minute until the batter is very smooth.

Step 5

5. Lastly, fold through the durian flesh. Spoon the mixture into the loaf tin and smooth the top so that there is a level surface.
