Durian Cake

This recipe is courtesy of a friend of mine. Her version of durian cake looks much more appetizing than mine. This recipe is super easy so don't worry if you are just a beginner. I actually finished baking this in one hour. You may skip the filling and topping just like I did. The cake itself taste delicious enough. I plan to use the same recipe but substitute with chocolate chips instead of durian. Just by imagining it already makes me salivating.
