Nothing says summer like mangoes. Go beyond the criss-cross cuts - bake a mango-filled meringue loaf with lime mascarpone, start off the day with a sweet coconut quinoa pudding with sticky mango, or toss it through a spicy warm weather Thai salad.

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."

Corndogs


You'll need

8 small frankfurts For brushing: olive oil 125 gm plain flour, plus extra for dusting 150 gm instant polenta 3 tsp baking powder ¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda 1 tsp cayenne pepper ½ tsp smoked paprika Finely grated rind of 1 lemon 1 egg 250 ml buttermilk For deep-frying: vegetable oil To serve: American-style mustard, tomato sauce and mayonnaise (optional)

Method

  • 01
  • Heat a char-grill pan (or barbecue) over medium-high heat. Brush frankfurts lightly with olive oil and char-grill, turning occasionally, until browned (2-3 minutes).
  • 02
  • Combine dry ingredients and lemon rind in a bowl with 2 tsp sea salt. Gradually whisk in eggs and buttermilk until smooth, then transfer to a tall jug.
  • 03
  • Preheat vegetable oil in a deep saucepan to 180C. Skewer frankfurts on long wooden skewers, dust in flour, then, working with one at a time, dip into batter and deep-fry, holding end of skewer and ensuring whole corndog is submerged in oil, until batter puffs and turns golden (3-4 minutes; be careful, hot oil will spit). Drain on absorbent paper and serve hot with mustard, tomato sauce and mayonnaise.
