Durian Crepe Cake Recipe

After durian butter cake, I have tried with another new type of cake, durian crepe cake. I ate my first mille crepe during my stay in Japan. From there, I get to know mille crepe, a very delicious and special cake. Last year, I ordered one peanut butter mille crepe for Camus on his birthday, and it tasted heavenly. I wanted to make my own crepe too but due to time concern, I have no chance to make one. This time, since it is durian season, I make a durian crepe. Besides frozen cheese cake, this is another type of cake where you can make it without oven. The way of making the crepe is the same as making pan cake. You just need to fried the crepe piece by piece, prepare the filling and stack the crepe together with the filling until you get a perfect cake.

Besides, it is also one of Tokyo's major tourist attractions due to the busy atmosphere of scooters, trucks, sellers and buyers rushing around.

 

Bento Set | Kyoto Station, Japan

According to Camus, experience of eating a bento set in train while traveling from one place to another place is a must in Japan. In order to not make our trip a regretted one, we bought a bento set in Kyoto Station when we were headed to Arashiyama in Kyoto, Japan.  

 

Dinner at いろはかるた Izakaya 居酒屋| Kyoto Japan

Izakaya居酒屋is a place where Japanese gather together for eating, drinking, smoking and talking. To be more precise, it is a place for them to drink, drink, drink and drink non-stop. Since it is a place for drinking, many Izakaya provide drinking buffer (飲み放題 "nomihoudai") package. If you are to order a set package, many of them come with appetizer, main dishes, salad, dessert and some side dishes. The drinks are buffet type and you can choose from soft drink, wine, cocktail, sake and others. Most of them are alcohol. I have visited to many of the Izakaya during the stay in Japan. Most of the times were attended farewell or welcoming party with Japanese colleague. I have no chance to take good photo during dining with them.

Kaya_11"kaya" is a jam made with coconut milk (santan), sugar and eggs. Pandan leaves are added during cooking process to bring more fragrance to the jam.

I have this homemade kaya recipe from my mother while she made kaya jam last Sunday. The ingredients used are very simple but I was impressed with her patient during the cooking process. It was really time consuming to make the delicious kaya. You need to stir the mixture continuously during the cooking process in order to get the smooth texture kaya.

If this time consuming version does not suit you, go for this version, which only required less than 30 minutes to get your kaya jam ready.

Let's go into the ingredients and cooking method now.


Ingredients:
10 eggs
900g sugar
1kg coconut milk
pandan leaves (wash)

The whole process took about 4 hours. Patient and hardwork are needed to make it successful. I believed most of the people will rather buy it outside. Tongue out But, I did appreciate the time and effort that mom spent to make the delicious kaya jam for her family. Thank you mom Kiss ! It was soooooo delicious and "sweet". Wink

Hi Phyllis, thanks for dropping by. According to mom, it is necessary to ladle the mixture into a bag first if you want your kaya to have a smooth texture.

Hi, I am so excited to have found this recipe! Thank you for posting it! I remember my aunties making this and have wanted to make it myself.

I noticed that in one of the photos, the jam seemed to be ladled into a bag? Can you tell me if that is necessary to do?

Thank you

Hi

I would like to know when you double boiled the kaya, in step 8,

1) do you cover the pot with the kaya and also the double boiled pot?
2) how long do you double boiled it?
3) do you open it regularly to stir it?

Looking forwad to your answers.

TQ.
