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."

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.

Anchovy and silverbeet on toast


You'll need

50 ml extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for brushing 21 anchovy fillets 5 garlic cloves, thinly sliced 600 gm silverbeet, leaves and stems thinly sliced, reserved separately 130 ml white wine 100 gm cherry tomatoes (about 8) 1 ficelle (see note), thinly sliced diagonally

Method

  • 01
  • Heat oil in a deep frying pan over medium heat, add 5 anchovies and stir occasionally until anchovy disintegrates (1 minute). Add garlic, stir until tender (2-3 minutes). Increase heat to high, add silverbeet stems, stir to coat, then add wine, bring to the simmer, cover and stir occasionally until liquid is reduced to a glaze (2-3 minutes). Add silverbeet leaves and tomato, toss to coat, cover and steam until leaves wilt (4-5 minutes). Season to taste and keep warm.
  • 02
  • Preheat a char-grill pan over high heat. Brush bread with oil, season to taste and grill, turning once, until golden (1-2 minutes). Top with silverbeet mixture and remaining anchovies, season to taste with pepper and serve warm.
Note Ficelle, a narrow sourdough baguette, is available from select bakeries.

This recipe is from the July 2011 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

“Any type of Ortiz anchovy is very good quality, but if you can’t find Ortiz, you can use any other anchovy in olive oil. The ones packed in salt are too strong. Anchovies and tomatoes are a perfect match, but silverbeet is in season right now.”
