Durian Swiss Roll

Remember I bought a container of Durian Puree from the local Consolidated food? Yeah... I still have lots of it and I'm trying to finish them up by searching for recipes that uses durian puree. Over the weekend I went over to Johore Bahru for my brother's marriage registration ceremony and he bought durians for me to eat. Wow! I never knew there were so many types of durian. We ate 2 types of durian - the 'Musang' & 'Apple'. In Sabah, the durian season is not out yet so I will probably have to wait until August/ September to use durian flesh for baking and add some of the store bought durian (if I still have them.)

Since its still the month of July, I'm making this durian swiss roll for the Aspiring Bakers. Actually the swiss roll cracked but it cannot be seen as it was underneath..(^o^). Because I used durian puree for the filling, it was not thick and flow out when cut. Taste wise, its still good...

60ml Milk
