Mango recipes

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."

Cheddar and kale pull-aparts


We love these rolls eaten while still warm simply with plenty of salted butter. They'd also be excellent served alongside an autumnal soup - creamy potato or cauliflower would make a good match.

You'll need

500 gm strong white flour 250 gm wholemeal flour 1 tbsp coarsely chopped thyme 1 tsp dried yeast 250 gm sour cream 80 gm coarsely grated vintage cheddar   Kale filling 30 gm butter, diced 1 tbsp olive oil 1 leek, finely chopped 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped 3 cups finely chopped kale 1 tbsp finely chopped thyme 1 tsp dried red chilli flakes Finely grated rind of 1 lemon

Method

  • 01
  • Combine flours, thyme, yeast and 3 tsp salt in an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook and mix to combine. Whisk 100gm sour cream and 350ml lukewarm water in a bowl to combine, then, with mixer on medium speed, gradually add to flour mixture and knead until smooth and elastic, and dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl (5-6 minutes). Transfer to a lightly oiled bowl, cover and set aside until doubled in size (1 hour).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for kale filling, melt butter and oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat, add leek and garlic and sauté until tender (4-5 minutes). Add kale, stir occasionally until wilted (2-3 minutes), then stir in thyme, chilli and lemon rind. Remove from heat, season to taste and set aside.
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 200C, and butter and line the base of a 20cm x 30cm baking tray with baking paper. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface, knock down, then roll out to a 30cm x 45cm rectangle, with the longest side facing you. Spread with remaining sour cream, scatter with cheese and kale filling, then season to taste. Roll into a cylinder, trim uneven ends, then cut into 12 even pieces. Place cut-side up in prepared tin, cover and stand until risen by half (10-15 minutes). Bake, turning tray occasionally, until golden brown (30-40 minutes). Stand in tray for 10 minutes, then serve warm.
