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."

Tarte Tatin with lavender honey ice-cream


You'll need

1 sheet frozen butter puff pastry, defrosted 90 gm unsalted butter, softened 165 gm (¾ cup) white sugar 4 Granny Smith apples, trimmed, cut widthways into ½cm-thick rounds 1½ tsp ground cinnamon 1 tbsp fresh lavender flowers (optional), to serve   Lavender honey ice-cream 225 ml milk 150 ml heavy cream (45% milk fat) ½ tsp each of vanilla and lavender essence (see note) 6 egg yolks 180 gm (½ cup) lavender honey

Method

  • 01
  • For lavender honey ice-cream, combine milk, cream and essences in a heavy-based saucepan, bring to a gentle simmer and remove from heat. Whisk egg yolks and honey until thick and creamy. Gradually pour in milk mixture, whisking continuously. Return mixture to saucepan and cook over a low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture coats the back of a wooden spoon thickly (8-10 minutes). Remove from heat and strain through a fine sieve, then cool completely. Chill in refrigerator, then freeze in an ice-cream machine according to manufacturer’s instructions.
  • 02
  • Roll pastry out on a lightly floured surface until 3mm-thick. Cut out a 26cm-diameter round from pastry using a plate turned upside down as a guide. Prick pastry with a fork, then transfer to a baking paper-lined oven tray and refrigerate until required.
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 250C. Spread butter thickly over base and sides of a 24cm-diameter frying pan. Scatter with sugar, then place over low heat and rotate to evenly melt sugar and coat pan. Cook until sugar is golden and caramelised (5-10 minutes). Remove from heat.
  • 04
  • Arrange apple slices in pan in concentric circles, scatter with cinnamon and cook over low heat, without stirring, until apples soften (10-12 minutes). Cover with pastry and bake until pastry is crisp and golden (15-20 minutes). Transfer pan to a wire rack to cool for 10 minutes. To serve, place a plate over the mould and carefully invert. Serve with lavender honey ice-cream scattered with lavender flowers if desired.
Note Lavender essence is available from The Essential Ingredient.
