Mango and Lime Frozen Yoghurt

 

 

At last mango season has arrived and I for one couldn’t be happier. With temperatures soaring it seemed the perfect time to try my hand at making my first ever frozen yoghurt.

I can’t believe how simple this was to make, it is just a matter of putting the ingredients in a food processor then into an ice cream maker and it’s done.. no fuss required.

I can see many frozen yogurts in my future :)

Potato and Rosemary Bread

It may not have been my brightest idea to make bread on one of the hottest October days we have had in years, but the end result was certainly worth it. This potato and rosemary bread was the perfect addition to a casual afternoon picnic lunch.

Recipe

Adapted from All You Knead Is Bread by Jane Mason

Makes 2 medium loaves.

Ingredients

  • 500gms bakers flour
  • 5gm dry yeast
  • 250-300ml water
  • 10gm salt
  • 2-3 sprigs rosemary
  • 400gm potato, boiled and cut in to cubes.

Method

Place flour in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre and pour yeast into the well. Pour 50gm of the water into the well. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and rest for 15 minutes.

Add the remaining water, salt and rosemary and knead with a stand mixer for at least 5 minutes.

Remove dough from mixer and place in an oiled bowl and rest mixture for 15 minutes.

Place dough on a clean bench and fold in the cubed potatoes until well combined.

Place dough back in oiled bowl. Cover with oiled plastic wrap and rest for 1-2 hours or until the dough has doubled in size.

Place dough on a clean bench and divide in two even pieces.

Shape into round balls, be gentle don’t stretch and fold as you would with other dough as this one will be too soft.

Place on a tray lined with baking paper.

Dust dough with flour.

Cover with a dry tea towel and rest for one hour.

Pre-heat oven to 200°C.

Bake for 45 minutes or until the bottom sounds hollow when tapped.
