Anzac biscuit desserts

These four desserts have one thing in common – Anzac biscuits.

Six sexy panna cottas

We say si to these six takes on the Italian classic. From coffee and caramel to red wine and figs, panna cotta proves to be a versatile dessert to suit all palettes.

Persian red lentil soup with tahini, beetroot and fried mint

Lentil soup may not sound like the sexiest of dishes, but rest assured, it's a heart-warmer. We've added warming spices and served the soup with a dollop of garlicky tahini. Thin slivers of shaved raw beetroot add earthiness and texture - the beetroot is also excellent simply grated and served piled on top. The poached egg is optional, but highly recommended.

Sugared apple galette


You'll need

100 gm dried muscatels 100 ml brandy 7 gm (1 sachet) dried yeast 30 gm caster sugar 80 ml (1/3 cup) lukewarm milk 330 gm plain flour 2 lemons, finely grated rind only 1 egg and 1 egg yolk, lightly beaten together, at room temperature 120 gm butter, softened For dusting: pure icing sugar   Sugar apple top 80 gm crème fraîche 60 gm butter, stored in the freezer for ½ hour 80 gm caster sugar 1 lemon, finely grated rind only 2 Granny Smith apples, very thinly sliced

Method

  • 01
  • For brioche base, add muscatels and brandy to a small saucepan and simmer over medium heat until brandy is absorbed (4-5 minutes). Set aside and cool.
  • 02
  • Combine yeast, a pinch of the caster sugar and warm milk in a bowl, stir to dissolve yeast, then set aside in a warm place until foamy (2-3 minutes). Meanwhile, combine flour, lemon rind and remaining sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook and mix to combine. With mixer on low speed, add yeast mixture, egg mixture and muscatels and mix to combine. Add butter a little at a time and beat until smooth and glossy (4-5 minutes). Transfer to a buttered bowl, turn to coat and cover with plastic wrap. Stand in a warm place until double in size (1½-2 hours).
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 200C. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll out to a 30cm-diameter circle. Line a buttered 27cm-diameter fluted tart pan with the dough, rolling edges in and pleating as you go, and prick within border with a fork.
  • 04
  • For sugar apple top, spread crème fraîche over brioche dough within border. Coarsely grate butter and scatter two thirds over crème fraîche. Combine sugar and lemon rind in a small bowl, scatter two thirds of the sugar mixture over butter. Layer apple over sugar mixture, overlapping slices, then scatter with remaining butter and sugar mixture. Bake until golden (15-20 minutes), dust edges with icing sugar and serve immediately.
