Most popular recipes summer 2017

Counting down from 20, here are this summer's most-loved recipes.

Curtis Stone's strawberry, elderflower and brioche summer puddings

"Think of this dessert as a deconstructed version of a summer pudding, with thinly sliced strawberries macerated in elderflower liqueur and layered between slices of brioche," says Stone. "A dollop of whipped cream on top is a cooling counterpoint to the floral flavours."

Jammy mandarin and cinnamon buns


You'll need

100 ml lukewarm milk, plus extra for brushing 55 gm (¼ cup) raw caster sugar, plus extra for dusting pan 1 7 gm sachet dry yeast 3 eggs, at room temperature 450 gm (3 cups) plain flour 50 gm very soft butter For dusting: demerara sugar   Mandarin jam 8 mandarins 2 each oranges and lemons 220 gm (1 cup) white sugar 60 ml (¼ cup) orange liqueur   Cinnamon glaze 150 gm pure icing sugar, sieved 30 ml mandarin juice 10 gm butter ¼ tsp ground cinnamon

Method

  • 01
  • For mandarin jam, peel and segment half the mandarins. Remove seeds and reserve. Juice remaining mandarins into a measuring jug and set aside. Peel and segment oranges and lemons over a bowl to catch juices, then squeeze any remaining juice from pulp, reserving seeds. Combine juices to yield 1 cup and pour into a large heavy-based saucepan with sugar. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally until sugar dissolves. Tie seeds in a small piece of muslin, add to pan with segments and simmer until syrupy (about 30 minutes). Remove seeds, stir in liqueur and cool to room temperature.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, combine milk, sugar and yeast in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook. Mix on low speed until yeast dissolves. Add eggs and ½ tsp sea salt and mix to combine. Add flour, mix to combine, then add butter and mix until incorporated. Increase mixer speed to medium and knead until dough is smooth and elastic (about 5 minutes). Transfer to a lightly oiled bowl, turn to coat, cover with plastic wrap and stand in a warm place until doubled in size (about 2 hours).
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Turn dough onto a floured surface, knock down, roll into a 20cm x 60cm rectangle. Working with the longest side facing you, spread with one-third of the jam, leaving a 3cm border. Roll to form a cylinder, cut into 12 even pieces and place cut-side down in a buttered and sugared 20cm x 30cm cake pan, allowing space for expansion. Cover with plastic wrap and stand in a warm place until doubled in size (30 minutes). Brush with milk, dust with sugar and bake until golden (30 minutes). Turn onto a wire rack and cool.
  • 04
  • Meanwhile, for cinnamon glaze, combine ingredients in a small saucepan and stir over medium heat until smooth (about 2 minutes). Remove from heat, drizzle over buns and serve with jam passed separately.
