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.

Chocolate and marrons glacés soufflé with chocolate sauce


You'll need

  Soufflé 125 gm dark chocolate (64.5% cocoa solids), finely chopped 20 gm marrons glacés, drained from syrup and finely chopped (see note) 5 eggwhites 65 gm caster sugar, plus extra for moulds 3 egg yolks For dusting: Dutch-process cocoa For greasing: soft butter   Chocolate sauce 140 gm dark chocolate (64.5% cocoa solids), finely chopped 125 ml pouring cream 20 ml Cognac

Method

  • 01
  • For chocolate sauce, combine chocolate, cream and Cognac in a heatproof bowl and place over a saucepan of simmering water, stirring occasionally until smooth. Set aside and keep warm.
  • 02
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Melt chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, stirring occasionally until smooth, add marrons glacés and combine. Keep warm.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, whisk eggwhites until soft peaks form, add one-third of the sugar and whisk until glossy. Add remaining sugar, whisking continuously, until firm peaks form. Add egg yolks to chocolate mixture and mix to combine (mixture will stiffen slightly). Fold one-third of the eggwhite mixture through chocolate mixture to lighten, then fold through remaining eggwhite mixture. Divide among four buttered and sugared 200ml-capacity ovenproof ramekins, smoothing tops and running a finger around edges. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until risen and just cooked, dust with cocoa and serve immediately with chocolate sauce to pour over.

Note Marrons glacés are candied chestnuts preserved in heavy sugar syrup and are available from David Jones Foodhalls, Simon Johnson and select delicatessens.
