"Durian (aka King of Fruits) is one of my favorite fruits and can be bought at most Asian supermarkets. This exotic fruit is very aromatic and one must have an acquired taste for it, but it adds a nice touch to cheesecake. I incorporated durian into my usual cheesecake recipe and it came out delicious!" — wongster

The durian flavour comes out well! Although my Malaysian wife and her family were quite repelled at the idea of durian in a cheesecake, I thought it tasted not bad at all. Durian is definitely an acquired taste and this is a good way to try it. Mine also didn't turn out quite as yellow as the picture submitted with the recipe.
