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."

Smoked trout, cucumber and coconut salad with dosai


There are many varieties of dosa, and most require the batter to ferment overnight. We've adapted a godhuma dosa recipe because these require no fermentation, making them ideal for speedy dinners. For a super-fast meal, you could buy ready-made dosai or roti from select Asian grocers.

You'll need

400 gm smoked trout, coarsely flaked, bones removed 2 Lebanese cucumbers, halved, coarsely chopped 2 cups (loosely packed) coriander 25 gm shredded coconut ½ Spanish onion, thinly sliced 2 kaffir lime leaves, thinly sliced, plus extra to serve Juice of 1½ limes 1 tbsp vegetable oil To serve: cos leaves (optional)   Green chilli dosai 160 gm (1 cup) wholemeal flour 50 gm (¼ cup) rice flour 15 gm (3cm piece) ginger, finely grated 1 long green chilli, finely chopped 1 tsp cumin seeds

Method

  • 01
  • For green chilli dosai, combine flours, ginger, chilli and cumin seeds in a large bowl, then whisk in 430ml water, season to taste, whisk to combine and set aside.
  • 02
  • Combine trout, cucumber, coriander, coconut, onion, kaffir lime leaves and lime juice in a large bowl and set aside.
  • 03
  • Heat ½ tsp oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Add 2 tbsp dosa batter, swirl to coat base thinly, cook until golden (1 minute), then turn and cook until crisp (1 minute).
