Anzac biscuit desserts

These four desserts have one thing in common – Anzac biscuits.

Six sexy panna cottas

We say si to these six takes on the Italian classic. From coffee and caramel to red wine and figs, panna cotta proves to be a versatile dessert to suit all palettes.

Persian red lentil soup with tahini, beetroot and fried mint

Lentil soup may not sound like the sexiest of dishes, but rest assured, it's a heart-warmer. We've added warming spices and served the soup with a dollop of garlicky tahini. Thin slivers of shaved raw beetroot add earthiness and texture - the beetroot is also excellent simply grated and served piled on top. The poached egg is optional, but highly recommended.

Passionfruit soufflés with vanilla Anglaise


You'll need

To grease moulds: softened butter 120 gm caster sugar, plus extra for dusting 300 gm eggwhite (about 9), at room temperature   Passionfruit base 65 gm caster sugar 30 gm cornflour 250 ml strained passionfruit juice (from about 25 passionfruit) Seeds from ¼ vanilla bean   Vanilla crème anglaise 160 ml each milk and pouring cream 2 vanilla beans, split and seeds scraped 4 egg yolks 50 gm caster sugar

Method

  • 01
  • For passionfruit base, combine sugar and cornflour in a bowl. Pour in passionfruit juice and whisk in well so there are no lumps. Stir in vanilla seeds and transfer to a small saucepan. Bring to the boil over medium heat, whisking regularly to prevent sticking, then reduce heat to low and simmer, whisking continuously, until thick (2-3 minutes). Transfer to a bowl, cover directly with plastic wrap and cool to room temperature.
  • 02
  • For vanilla crème Anglaise, place milk, cream and vanilla beans and seeds in a saucepan over medium heat and bring to a simmer. Meanwhile, whisk egg yolks and sugar in a large bowl until combined, then carefully add hot milk mixture, whisking continuously. Return to the pan and stir continuously over low heat until mixture coats the back of the spoon (3-4 minutes). Strain through a sieve into a bowl placed over ice and cool, stirring occasionally, then refrigerate.
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 200C. Lightly and evenly brush six 250ml ramekins (either copper or ceramic) with butter and dust with sugar, shaking off excess. Place passionfruit base in a large bowl and whisk until smooth. Whisk eggwhites in an electric mixer on fast setting until they start foaming (30 seconds), then, with the motor running, gradually add sugar and whisk just until firm peaks form (1 minute), then turn off machine immediately.
  • 04
  • Add a quarter of the eggwhite to the passionfruit base and whisk to combine, then gently fold in remaining eggwhite with a spatula and transfer to a piping bag with no nozzle. Immediately pipe mixture into prepared moulds (this helps prevent air pockets), smooth tops with a palette knife, then run your finger around the rim of the moulds to stop edges sticking as the soufflés rise. Place on an oven tray and bake until risen and golden on top (8-9 minutes).
  • 05
  • Make a hole in the top of each soufflé with your spoon to pour in the Anglaise at the table and serve immediately.
