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 confit ocean trout, preheat oven to 100C. Heat oil to 80C in a saucepan over high heat. Arrange trout fillets, thyme, garlic and fennel seeds in a baking dish to fit trout very snugly, then add hot oil to just cover. Bake until cooked medium-rare (15-20 minutes). Set aside in oil.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for quick hummus, process chickpeas, garlic, tahini and lemon juice in a food processor until finely chopped, gradually add oil and process until smooth and combined. Season to taste, spoon onto plates and set aside.
  • 03
  • Combine remaining ingredients (except flatbread) in a bowl and toss to combine. Remove ocean trout from oil (discard oil), remove skin and coarsely flake over salad. Serve warm with flatbread.
Note Baby shiso is available from select greengrocers.
