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."

Fried whitebait with cumin salt and smoky mayonnaise


You'll need

1 tsp cumin seeds 1 lime, finely grated rind only 1 tbsp smoked sea salt, plus extra for seasoning (see note) For deep-frying: sunflower oil 300 gm small whitebait 75 gm (½ cup) plain flour To serve: lime wedges   Smoky mayonnaise 150 ml olive oil 50 ml extra-virgin olive oil 2 egg yolks ½ tsp Dijon mustard 1 tbsp lemon juice 1 small clove of garlic, finely chopped ½ tsp smoked paprika

Method

  • 01
  • Dry-roast cumin in a frying pan over high heat, stirring continuously, for 20 seconds or until fragrant. Transfer to a mortar, cool slightly, then, using a pestle, finely grind. Add rind, smoked sea salt and freshly ground white pepper and combine.
  • 02
  • For smoky mayonnaise, combine oils in a jug. Process remaining ingredients in a food processor until smooth, gradually add oil mixture, one drop at a time, then in a thin steady stream until smooth and emulsified. (If mixture becomes too thick, thin with a little hot water before adding more oil.) Season to taste with smoked sea salt and freshly ground white pepper. Makes about ¾ cup. Mayonnaise will keep refrigerated for 1 week.
  • 03
  • Preheat sunflower oil in a deep-fryer or large, deep saucepan to 180C. Combine whitebait and flour in a bowl, season to taste and toss to coat. Sift excess flour from whitebait with a coarse sieve. Fry in batches, for 5 minutes or until crisp and golden, drain on absorbent paper and season with cumin salt. Serve with mayonnaise, cumin salt and lime wedges to the side.
Note Smoked sea salt, such as Halen Môn, is available from Simon Johnson and select delicatessens.
