Flour and Stone Recipes

Baker extraordinaire Nadine Ingram of Sydney's Flour and Stone cooks up a sweet storm for Easter, including the much loved bakery's greatest hit.

Savoury tarts

Will your next baking project be a flaky puff pastry with pumpkin, goat's curd and thyme, or a classic bacon and Stilton tart? As autumn settles in, we're ticking these off one by one.

Fast autumn dinners

Autumn weather signals the arrival of soups, broths, roasts and more hearty meals.

Roasted cauliflower salad with yoghurt dressing and almonds

The cauliflower is roasted until it starts to caramelise, which adds extra depth of flavour to this winning salad. Serve it warm or at room temperature.

1980s recipes

Australia saw some bold moves in the ’80s, and we’re not just talking hairstyles. Greater cultural references started peppering the menus of our restaurants, and home-grown ingredients won a new appreciation. The dining scene was coming of age and a new band of pioneers led the charge.

Melbournes finest meet Worlds Best

Leading chefs descend on Melbourne in April for The World’s 50 Best Restaurants. We asked local hospitality folk who they’d abduct for the day and where they’d take them to show off their city. There may be coffee, there may be culture, but in the end it’s cocktails.

Roti canai

Here, we've made the dough in a food processor, but it's really quick and simple to do by hand as well. If the dough seems a little too wet just add a little more flour.

Milk flan with dulce de leche and whipped cream


"The dulce de leche flan Ben and Elvis from Porteño made at their Popteño pop-up earlier this year was really cute. May I have the recipe so I can recreate it?"

You'll need

300 gm caster sugar 5 eggs 350 ml milk 350 ml pouring cream 800 gm sweetened condensed milk To serve: thickened cream, whipped

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 120C. Cook sugar in a frying pan over high heat, swirling pan occasionally, until dark caramel (7-9 minutes) then, working quickly, pour caramel into six 2-cup baking dishes and leave to cool and set (15-20 minutes).
  • 02
  • Whisk eggs, milk, cream and 200gm condensed milk in a bowl to combine. Pour mixture into the moulds and place in a roasting pan, fill with hot water to come halfway up the sides of the moulds and bake until flans are set (40-50 minutes; they should have a slight wobble in the centre). Refrigerate flans until cooled and set (4 hours).
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, for dulce de leche, preheat oven to 220C. Pour remaining condensed milk into a 1.5-litre baking dish, cover with foil and place in a large roasting pan. Fill pan with water to halfway up the sides of moulds, then bake until milk is dark golden, topping up water as necessary (1½-1¾ hours). Remove from roasting pan and whisk dulce de leche until smooth. Fill a piping bag fitted with a 5mm nozzle and set aside until needed. Dulce de leche will keep refrigerated in an airtight container for up to a week.
  • 04
  • Run a knife around the edges of each flan and turn out onto serving plates, pipe dulce de leche on top and serve with whipped cream.
