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."

Chicken stir-fried with holy basil and chilli

Rice fritters with vanilla cream


You'll need

500 ml (2 cups) milk 250 gm vialone nano rice 30 gm unsalted butter, coarsely chopped 1 vanilla bean, split, seeds scraped Finely grated rind of 1 lemon 140 gm plain flour 100 gm caster sugar 2 eggs, lightly beaten ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda 25 ml dark rum For deep-frying: vegetable oil   Vanilla cream 2 eggs, separated 50 gm caster sugar 150 gm mascarpone Scraped seeds of ½ vanilla bean   Cinnamon sugar 150 gm caster sugar 1 tsp ground cinnamon

Method

  • 01
  • Bring milk, rice, butter, vanilla bean and seeds and lemon rind to the boil in a saucepan over medium heat, reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until rice is tender (20-25 minutes). Transfer to a bowl, cool to room temperature (30-45 minutes) and remove vanilla bean. Add flour, sugar, egg, bicarbonate of soda and rum, stir to combine and refrigerate until firm (4 hours).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for vanilla cream, whisk eggwhite in an electric mixer until soft peaks form (1-2 minutes). Gradually add sugar in a continuous stream until incorporated, then whisk to firm, glossy peaks (3-4 minutes) and set aside. Whisk yolks in a bowl until pale (3-4 minutes), fold in eggwhite mixture with mascarpone and vanilla seeds and refrigerate until required.
  • 03
  • For cinnamon sugar, combine ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
  • 04
  • Heat vegetable oil in a large saucepan over medium heat to 180C. Deep-fry tablespoons of mixture in batches, turning occasionally, until golden and cooked through (3-5 minutes; be careful as hot oil will spit). Drain on absorbent paper, roll in cinnamon sugar and serve hot with vanilla cream.
This recipe is from the April 2012 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.
