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."

Churros with dulce de leche


We'll take a cheeky churro any time, but served with moreish dulce de leche these golden doughnut-like treats make a fun finish to a Latin-flavoured meal.

You'll need

325gm plain flour 30 gm caster sugar, plus extra for dusting 60 ml (1/4 cup) olive oil Vegetable oil, for deep-frying Dulce de leche (see note) to serve

Method

  • 01
  • Combine flour, sugar and a pinch of salt in an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment.
  • 02
  • Bring oil and 450ml water to the boil in a saucepan over high heat, then, with the motor running on low speed, gradually add to flour until all incorporated. Increase speed to high and beat until a very smooth dough forms (2-3 minutes). Transfer dough to a piping bag fitted with a 1.5cm star nozzle and push down to remove any air bubbles in the bag. Refrigerate to rest for 30 minutes.
  • 03
  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or deep saucepan to 180C. Working in batches of 3-4, pipe lengths of mixture (about 15cm-20cm) into hot oil, cutting off dough with scissors (be careful, hot oil will spit). Deep-fry, turning occasionally, until golden (3-5 minutes), then remove and drain on paper towels. Toss in caster sugar, shaking off excess, and serve hot with dulce de leche for dipping.

Additional Notes

Dulce de leche is available form Latin American and Spanish shops, or make your own cheat's version. Simmer a can of condensed milk in a large saucepan covered with a weighted lid over low heat for 3 1/2 hours. Do not uncover or touch it while it cooks. Cool completely in the water before opening (1-2 hours; do not open can until it's completely cold).
