Durian Crepe...lalala

Durian season is back again!! D24, D101, D13, Musang King...so many types of durian. U can eat it straight away or you can make Durian Cheesecake, Durian Cream Puff, and the latest craze...Durian Crepe! Crepe is a type of very thin pancake made from flour. Crepes are made by pouring a thin liquid batter onto a hot frying pan or flat circular hot plate, often with a trace of butter on the pan's surface. The batter is spread evenly over the cooking surface of the pan or plate either by tilting the pan or by distributing the batter. Crepe originate from Brittany, a region in the northwest of France. Now, Malaysians are very innovative we can change a traditional French recipe into a Malaysian one! The fillings are up to your preferences but for Durian Crepe you fill the crepe with whipped cream and durian. Yummmaayyyy!!!

There are so many Durian Crepe maker mushrooming all over the place. You just have to know your maker in your area. The price varies for a set (either 4 pieces or 6 pieces) you can get for RM10. But believe me, one set is not enough for the whole family! I went for classes to master this recipe, someone told me that it is easy to make but let me tell you if you want the thin crepe and fillings that melt in your mouth it is NOT an easy task! You need to use 5 types of flour just to get the right taste of the crepe. And the right tools and skill to cook it.

For those of you who are not into Durian, you can actually make Mango Crepe, Oreo Crepe, Banana Chocolate Crepe or any other flavour that you like. For me, I catered to those staying in Shah Alam, especially the U10 area (nearby Bukit Jelutong & UITM Puncak Perdana) and other than Durian Crepe I also make Oreo and Banana Chocolate Crepe.

Here are some of the pictures of Durian Crepe for those of you who have not seen it before...(where have you been, duuuhhhh...)
