Seven ways to do dumplings

Melbourne's best late-night bars

Nougat, salted peanut caramel and milk chocolate tart

What's not to love about a Snickers bar? All the elements are here, but if you don't feel like making your own nougat, you could always scatter some diced nougat in the base of the tart instead. The caramel is dark, verging on bitter, while a good whack of salt cuts through some of the sweetness - extra roasted salted peanuts on top can only be a good thing.

Apfel kuchen

"This is my mother's famous apple cake. The apples are macerated with sugar, cinnamon and lemon, and this lovely juice produces the icing," says Brigitte Hafner. The apples can be prepared the night before and kept in the fridge. This cake keeps well for four days and is at its best served the day after it's made."

Christmas pudding ice-cream


You'll need

12 egg yolks 75 gm (1/3 cup) brown sugar 75 gm (1/3 cup) white sugar 500 ml (2 cups) milk 500 ml (2 cups) pouring cream 1 vanilla bean, split and seeds scraped 1 orange and 1 lemon, finely grated rind only 3 cloves, cracked 1 tsp ground cinnamon ½ tsp freshly grated nutmeg 90 gm brown bread, broken into small pieces 1 tbsp butter, melted 1 tbsp pure icing sugar 2 tbsp finely chopped candied clementine (see note) 1 tbsp brandy 35 gm (¼ cup) toasted hazelnuts peeled and coarsely chopped 75 gm (½ cup) raisins 80 gm (½ cup) currants

Method

  • 01
  • Combine egg yolks and both sugars in a bowl and whisk until sugar dissolves. Combine milk, cream, vanilla bean and seeds and citrus rinds in a saucepan, bring to a simmer over medium heat, then pour over yolk mixture, whisking continuously to combine. Return to pan and cook, stirring continuously, over low heat for 8-10 minutes or until mixture coats the back of a spoon, then remove from heat and whisk in spices. Cool.
  • 02
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Place bread on a baking tray and cook for 3-4 minutes or until lightly golden, drizzle melted butter over and dust with icing sugar, then return to oven and cook for 3 minutes or until caramelised (take care not to burn bread). Cool.
  • 03
  • Strain custard through a fine sieve, add candied clementine, brandy, hazelnut, raisins, currants and brown bread and mix to combine. Freeze in an ice-cream machine, according to the manufacturer’s instructions, then freeze until required. Makes about 2 litres. Serve with peach and nectarine salad.
Note Candied clementine is available from David Jones Foodhalls and select delicatessens. If unavailable, substitute with other candied citrus.
