Satisfy your cravings for the King of Fruits with these delicious creations

There's no denying Singaporeans' love for durians, and it's the King of Fruits for a reason: whether you eat the fruit or enjoy it as a dessert, you won't be able to resist its complex flavours—rich, sweet and bittersweet at the same time.

These two new flavours were created to honour Anna Pavlova, a world-famous Russian ballerina who performed at the hotel in the 1920s. The former comprises elegant meringue spikes and a luscious core of durian meringue, while the latter has been infused with aromatic coffee notes to elevate the decadent filling. These new flavours are part of the repertoire created to celebrate Durian Fiesta from March 14 to July 26. Available at Coffee Lounge and L’Espresso.

“Durian is the King of Fruits and is well-loved and widely accepted by locals,” admits pastry chef Herve Potus, so he created this luscious cake to suit their cravings. Using French vanilla sponge as the base, each layer is generously slathered with homemade and decadent durian mousse. Complementing the creaminess of the filling, the cake is coated with coconut flakes to lend each mouthful a nutty bite.

3/6 Durian Pengat Verrine

Part of Edge’s dessert showcase, served on rotation, this variety has been a popular favourite for a long time. The chefs use the pulp of the D24 fruit, which is then mixed with pandan leaves as well as gula melaka, sugar and cream. This makes for an addictive dessert that’s silky smooth and bittersweet.

A spinoff of the Peranakan classic dessert, kueh salat, the culinary team uses the buttery flesh of the Mao Shan Wang or Wang Zong Wang durian (instead of kaya) to create the creamy custard. Set atop the traditional base of glutinous rice with a blue hue, thanks to the butterfly pea flower.

Always a classic is chef Chung Deming’s version of crème brulee—a perfect marriage of east-meets-west. The velvety custard is combined with the punchy flavours of the durian, and the caramelised sugar gives it a sweet finish.

6/6 Durian Cake

The pastry chef is such a big fan of durian that he created this cake, which became an instant hit. The signature comprises fluffy sponge cake as the base, which is then lathered with generous layers of durian mousse. The latter is aromatic and has that distinctive taste that’s rich but not too cloying. This is definitely a decadent treat.
