Apple and cinnamon hot cross buns

The mix of candied apple and dried apple combined with a sticky cinnamon glaze provides a new twist on an old favourite. These buns are equally good served warm on the day of baking, or several days later, toasted, with lashings of butter.

Momofuku's steamed buns

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.

Sugared raspberry jellies


You'll need

500 gm (about 5 punnets) raspberries 120 gm white sugar, plus extra for dusting ¼ cup corn syrup (see note) 50 gm powdered gelatine

Method

  • 01
  • Place raspberries in a saucepan over medium-high heat and cook gently until juices are released (about 5 minutes), transfer to a sieve placed over a bowl and stand for 30 minutes or until juices are drained to yield 200ml (do not press, discard solids).
  • 02
  • Combine raspberry juice, sugar and corn syrup in a saucepan over medium heat and stir until sugar dissolves. Meanwhile, combine gelatine and ½ cup cold water in a bowl, stir to combine and stand until gelatine is soft. Add to raspberry mixture, stir until gelatine dissolves, then remove from heat.
  • 03
  • Rinse a 7.5cm x 22cm loaf pan with cold water (don’t dry, this helps jelly turn out). Pour raspberry mixture into pan and stand for 6 hours or overnight at room temperature.
  • 04
  • Lay a piece of baking paper on a work surface and scatter over a layer of sugar. Run the tip of a wet knife around sides of jelly and carefully turn out onto sugar. Cut into 14 squares and toss to coat fully in sugar. Serve immediately.
Note Corn syrup is available from health food stores and select delicatessens.
