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.

You'll need

50 gm ghee 20 fresh curry leaves, plus extra sprigs, to serve 5 cloves of garlic, sliced 10 (about 300gm) red shallots, finely chopped 2 tsp ground turmeric 1 stick of cinnamon, halved 5 cardamom pods, lightly bruised 50 gm (1/3 cup) Sri Lankan curry powder 1.5 litres fish stock 2 tsp fennel seeds, soaked in water for 10 minutes 1.2kg sweet potato, cut into 1cm pieces 2 375ml tins coconut cream 2½ tbsp vegetable oil 6 (about 200 gm each) snapper fillets, skin on and pin-boned To serve: Steamed basmati rice, plain yoghurt, chutney and pickles, optional

Method

  • 01
  • Heat ghee in a heavy-based saucepan and, when a light haze comes over the pot, add curry leaves, garlic and shallots, and stir over medium heat for 5 minutes until shallots are translucent. Add remaining dry ingredients and cook for 4 minutes, stirring continuously or until lightly toasted and fragrant. Add stock and drained fennel seeds and bring to the boil.
  • 02
  • Add sweet potato and simmer for 10 minutes or until just tender. Using a slotted spoon, transfer sweet potato to a tray. Bring curry base to the boil, add coconut cream and bring to the boil, then remove from heat. Season to taste with sea salt and ground black pepper.
  • 03
  • Heat oil in a large, heavy-based frying pan over high heat, add snapper fillets, skin-side down, pressing to ensure skin is touching pan evenly. Cook for 3-4 minutes, then turn and cook for another 3 minutes until just cooked through.
  • 04
  • To serve, add sweet potato to curry sauce and cook until heated through, spoon rice into shallow bowls and top with snapper and a sprig of curry leaves. Ladle curry sauce into individual small bowls and pass separately. Serve immediately with small bowls of yoghurt, chutney and pickles, if using.
