Paul Carmichael's great cake

"Great cake, also known in Barbados as black cake or rum cake, is a variation of British Christmas cake that's smashed with rum and falernum syrup," says Momofuku Seiobo chef Paul Carmichael. "This festive cake varies from household to household but they all have two things in common: tons of dried fruit and rum. It's a cake that should be started at least a month out so the fruit can marinate in the booze. Start this recipe up to five weeks ahead to macerate the fruit and baste the cake."

Fried chicken with creamed corn and coleslaw


You'll need

1 chicken (about 1.2kg), jointed into 8 pieces 300 ml fish sauce For deep-frying: vegetable oil   Creamed corn 40 gm butter 1 onion, finely diced 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped 6 corn cobs, kernels removed 350 ml pouring cream   Garlic mayonnaise 1 egg yolk 1 tbsp Dijon mustard 2 tbsp cider vinegar ½ garlic clove, finely chopped 100 ml each extra-virgin olive oil and vegetable oil 2 tbsp lemon juice   Spiced flour 35 gm (¼ cup) plain flour 2½ tbsp sweet paprika 2 tbsp sea salt flakes 1½ tbsp onion powder 1 tbsp each ground cumin and freshly ground black pepper 2 tsp each ground coriander and ground cayenne pepper

Method

  • 01
  • For creamed corn, heat butter in a saucepan over medium heat, add onion and garlic and sauté until tender (5-6 minutes). Add corn and sauté until slightly sticky and bright yellow (3-4 minutes). Add cream, bring to the simmer, season to taste and simmer until corn is tender (15-20 minutes). Blend with a hand-held blender to a coarse consistency. Season to taste and keep warm.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for garlic mayonnaise, process yolk, mustard, cider vinegar and garlic in a food processor to combine. With motor running, add oils in a thin steady stream until thick and incorporated. Add lemon juice to taste and process to combine (mayonnaise should be a dressing consistency; add more lemon juice or a little warm water to thin if necessary). Season to taste and refrigerate until required.
  • 03
  • Poach chicken pieces in a large saucepan of simmering water until almost cooked through (7-8 minutes), drain well and transfer to a large bowl. Add fish sauce and set aside to marinate (5 minutes).
  • 04
  • Meanwhile, for spiced flour, combine ingredients in a large bowl and set aside.
  • 05
  • Preheat oil in a deep saucepan or deep-fryer to 180C. Drain fish sauce from chicken and dust chicken in spiced flour, shaking off excess. Deep-fry in batches, turning occasionally, until golden and cooked through (6-8 minutes; be careful as hot oil will spit). Drain on absorbent paper and season to taste.
  • 06
  • For coleslaw, combine ingredients in a large bowl with garlic mayonnaise, toss to combine, season to taste, and serve with hot fried chicken and creamed corn.
This recipe is from the December 2011 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.
