Durian season is upon us again and that means we now have every right to stuff our faces with Mao Shan Wangs and D24s.

From desserts to pastries, our thorny king of fruits has inspired endless creations to tantalise our fickle tastebuds. If the D24 durian puffs no longer tickle your fancy, we’ve got you covered. Here are 10 satisfying, creative, aromatic durian-inspired creations.

Let us first put it out there that we love lava cake. Who doesn’t love warm cake with warm custard oozing from within? This dessert was a winner from the get-go and once someone decided to put Mao Shan Wang into a lava cake, we knew we’d found a champ. Mao Shan Wang custard flowing out of a moist cake, with creamy Mao Shan Wang gelato on the side. It doesn’t get much better than this.
