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.

Dill-cured rainbow trout with beetroot and potato cakes and fresh horseradish


"Dill-cured trout served with potato cakes and horseradish cream may be somewhat traditional to some and a luxury to others like me," Moran says. "With a tweak of grated beetroot and onion bleeding richer hues and oomph, may the luxury live on." Start this recipe a day ahead to cure the trout.

You'll need

1 cup (loosely packed) fresh dill Finely grated rind of 1 orange 1 garlic clove, coarsely chopped 1 tsp juniper berries 110 gm (½ cup) caster sugar 145 gm (½ cup) coarse salt 1 rainbow trout (around 1kg), filleted, skin on, pin boned To serve: crème fraîche, horseradish root and radish sprouts   Beetroot and potato cakes 1 kg Desiree potatoes (about 3 large), peeled, halved 1 beetroot, peeled, coarsely grated 1 onion, coarsely grated Handful thyme, finely chopped 250 gm duck fat or canola oil

Method

  • 01
  • Pound dill, rind, garlic and juniper berries with a mortar and pestle to a coarse paste, add sugar and salt, mix well to combine, then rub mixture generously all over both trout fillets. Place in a non-reactive container and refrigerate overnight to cure.
  • 02
  • Shake off cure mix and pat each fillet dry with paper towels, then remove skin and thinly slice trout with a sharp filleting knife.
  • 03
  • For beetroot and potato cakes, place potatoes in a saucepan with a generous pinch of salt, cover with cold water, and bring to the boil over medium heat. Drain immediately and when cool enough to handle, coarsely grate potatoes into a bowl. Add beetroot, onion and thyme, season to taste and mix well. Form mixture into 10 round, flat patties, roughly 75gm each, pressing firmly together and set aside on a tray.
  • 04
  • Heat duck fat or oil in a large frying pan and shallow-fry patties in batches, turning occasionally, until golden and crisp on each side (3-6 minutes). Drain on paper towels and serve immediately with slices of dill-cured trout and topped with a dollop of crème fraîche, finely grated horseradish and radish sprouts.
