Durian Muffin

( recipe from Oriental Cuisine )

Ingredients A: 

160 cake flour/plain flour (sifted)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
90 gm butter
40gm margarine
100 gm castor sugar

Ingredients B:

1 egg (lightly beaten)
50ml evaporated milk
50ml  water
1tsp vanilla essence


250gm durian meat + 1/2 tbsp sugar

1. Preheat oven to 180C
2. Place all ingredients A into food processor, pulse it until it forms breadcrumbs
3. Pour in all the ingredients (B) and stir till just mixed. Do not worry if there are lumps as too much beating will casue the muffin to be hard.
4. Spoon a tablespoon of mixture into muffin cases or paper cups, top up with a tsp of durian filling and then top up with another tablespoon of batter.
5. Bake for 20-25 mins.

Note: I did not use margarine, 1 replaced it with melted butter. Results: Yummy! By the way, i'm not sure if my muffin cases are big, it only yields 5 muffins..not able to use up all the filling.
