When it comes to the king of fruits, it’s either you love it or you hate it. And to the ones who love it, there are several dessert options that take the pungent, creamy fruit to the next level.
As a soft serve, piped into a pastry, infused into local desserts or even into a cake, and so much more, durian’s application is basically boundless. If you’re as mad about durian desserts as we are, you’ll be thrilled to know that there is much more than just your average durian puff. Here is our guide on 16 durian desserts in Singapore.
Nestled among the many shophouses that pave the streets of Kampong Glam, Rich & Good Cake Shop stands as something of a confectionery institution in Singapore. They specialise in a variety of Swiss rolls that come in several flavours from chocolate, mango, green tea to blueberry and even durian.

When it comes to the King of Fruits, there is no sitting on the fence—you either love it or hate it. And fortunately for those who belong to the former group, durian desserts are aplenty in Singapore; durian puffs, durian crepes, durian cakes and even durian lapis—you name it, we have it.
If you are a true durian fan, you would enjoy the fruit in any form it takes. The durian pengat, however, is another league of its own entirely.
