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."

Drop scones with lemon curd and clotted cream


You'll need

100 gm (⅔ cup) self-raising flour 50 gm spelt flour (see note) 1 tsp baking powder 45 gm caster sugar 140 ml milk 2 eggs 105 gm butter, melted To serve: clotted cream (see note)   Lemon curd 110 gm unsalted butter, coarsely chopped 125 ml (½ cup) lemon juice 5 egg yolks 100 gm caster sugar

Method

  • 01
  • For lemon curd, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat, add lemon juice and set aside. Whisk yolks and sugar in a large heatproof bowl to combine, then add hot lemon mixture, whisking continuously to combine. Place over a saucepan of simmering water and stir continuously until mixture thickens (7-8 minutes), then cool over ice. Transfer to a sterilised jar. Lemon curd will keep refrigerated for a week. Makes about 350ml.
  • 02
  • Sieve flours and baking powder into a large bowl, stir in sugar, then make a well in the centre. Whisk milk, eggs and 1 tsp melted butter in a separate bowl to combine, gradually add to flour mixture and mix until a smooth batter forms (the batter should just drop from the spoon; add more milk if necessary to thin). Set aside to rest for 15 minutes.
  • 03
  • Heat one-quarter of remaining butter in a large frying pan over medium heat until foaming, drop teaspoons of batter into pan and cook until bubbles form on the surface (1-2 minutes), then turn and cook until golden (1 minute). Repeat with remaining butter and batter, wiping out pan with absorbent paper between batches. Serve warm with lemon curd and clotted cream.
Note Spelt flour is available from the health-food section of most supermarkets. Clotted cream is available from most specialist cheese shops and select delicatessens and supermarkets.

This recipe is from the June 2012 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.
