1 - Line two baking trays with greaseproof paper
2 - Attach the 3.5L bowl to the machine
3 - Fit the splashguard and Whisk tool
4 - Add the yolks, sugar, cornflour into the mixer bowl
5 - Start the machine on speed 3, mix for 20 seconds
6 - Scrape the sides of the bowl.
7 - Start the machine on speed 3 increase to Max speed, mix for 2 minutes until pale.
8 - Start the machine on speed 3, gradually add the remaining milk, cream, vanilla whilst mixing for 30 seconds until combined.
9 - Transfer the mixture into a medium saucepan, place over a medium heat, stirring constantly until thickened.
10 - Strain the mixture through a sieve into a medium mixing bowl.
11 - Cover the surface of the pastry cream with cling film and refrigerate until completely cool.
12 - Attach the 5L bowl to the machine and fit the Spiral Dough Tool. (*may require Kbeater instead)
13 - Add the water, flour, salt, 15g butter into the Mixer bowl.
14 - Mix on speed 2 for 5 minutes.
15 - Remove the pastry from the Mixer bowl and wrap in plastic wrap.
16 - Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
17 - Line a worksurface with parchment paper.
18 - Add 150g butter to the parchment paper.
19 - Place another piece of parchment paper on top.
20 - Using a rolling pin, gently flatten the butter into a rectangular shape.
21 - Transfer the pastry from the fridge to a lightly floured worksurface.
22 - Roll out the pastry into a square shape.
23 - Place the butter into the centre of the pastry.
24 - Fold the edges of the pastry over to enclose the butter fully and tightly pinch the seams to seal.
25 - Roll out the pastry until about 3 – 5 mm thick.
26 - Fold the bottom edge just over the centre and fold the top down to cover the first fold.
27 - Turn the dough 45º and immediately repeat the rolling and folding action.
28 - Wrap in plastic wrap.
29 - Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
30 - Repeat the folding and chilling process twice more.
31 - Pre heat the oven to 200ºC.
32 - Transfer the pastry from the fridge to a lightly floured worksurface.
33 - Roll out the pastry into a long rectangle with a thickness of 2 mm.
34 - With a sharp knife, cut the dough into three equally sized pieces.
35 - Transfer the dough to the prepared baking trays and pierce the dough all over with a fork.
36 - Cover the dough with another sheet of greaseproof paper and place a baking pan on top- this weight will prevent the pastry puffing too much, helping to give uniform pastry layers for the finished mille-feuille.
37 - Bake the weighed-down dough, in batches if necessary, for about 25 minutes or until the dough is deep golden brown.
38 - The weights and the top layer of parchment paper pan can be removed for the last 5 minutes of baking or so to help crisp up the dough.
39 - Transfer the baked pastry layers onto cooling racks to cool completely.
40 - Remove the pastry cream from the fridge.
41 - Clean and retrieve the 5L bowl, fit the Whisk tool
42 - Add the cream into the mixer bowl

46 - Add the remaining icing sugar, passionfruit pulp into the mixer bowl
47 - Start the machine on speed 3, increase to speed 5 for 1 minute 20 seconds, or until firm peaks. (*thick enough to pipe and hold its shape)
48 - Transfer the mixture to a piping bag.
49 - Make a rectangular template measuring 2x4 inches.
50 - Use the template and a sharp knife to cut 5 equal rectangles of pastry from each pastry layer.
51 - To assemble each individual mille-feuille:
52 - Take 3 of the pastry rectangles.
53 - Add thinly sliced mango on top of 2 of the layers.
54 - Pipe the cream filling on top of all 3 layers.
