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.

Method

  • 01
  • For chermoula flathead, process ingredients (except fish) in a food processor until a fine paste forms. Place fillets in a non-reactive container, rub with chermoula paste and refrigerate to marinate (1 hour).
  • 02
  • For pomegranate dressing, whisk ingredients in a bowl, season to taste and refrigerate until required.
  • 03
  • For tahini yoghurt, combine ingredients, season to taste and refrigerate until required.
  • 04
  • Place eggplant in a colander, scatter with salt and set aside to drain (1 hour). Brush salt from eggplant. Heat 2cm oil in a wide saucepan or frying pan over medium-high heat and fry eggplant until golden-brown (4-6 minutes). Drain on absorbent paper and set aside. Add parsley to pan and fry until crisp (1-2 minutes), then drain on absorbent paper and set aside. Add onion, stir occasionally until tender (5-7 minutes), add garlic and continue stirring (3-4 minutes). Add cumin and fry until fragrant. Remove from heat, stir in tomato and eggplant, add lemon juice to taste, season to taste and set aside.
  • 05
  • Heat 40ml oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Brush excess chermoula off fish and fry, turning once, until just cooked (3-5 minutes). Squeeze lemon over to taste and season to taste. Top eggplant with fish and fried parsley, drizzle with pomegranate dressing and serve with tahini yoghurt.
