Seven ways to do dumplings

Dumplings may be bite-sized, but they pack a flavourful punch. Here are seven mouth-watering recipes, from Korean mandu to classic Chinese-style steamed dumplings.

Recipes with zucchini

Melbourne's best late-night bars

As the shutters come down in other Australian capitals, Melbourne's vibrant nightlife is just hitting it's stride. Michael Harden burns the midnight oil at the city's best late-night bars and diners.

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."

Chocolate rolled sponge with chestnut cream


Roulades are delicate and often crack when rolled. Don't despair - they taste great regardless.

You'll need

4 eggs 110 gm (½ cup) caster sugar 65 gm cornflour 35 gm (¼ cup) Dutch-process cocoa, plus extra for dusting 1 tbsp plain flour 1 tsp cream of tartar ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda 50 gm unsalted butter, melted and cooled 250 ml thickened cream 280 gm (1 cup) sweetened chestnut purée (see note)

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Whisk eggs and sugar in an electric mixer until thick and pale (5-6 minutes). Sift over cornflour, cocoa, flour, cream of tartar and bicarb soda, fold in with spatula. Fold in butter, spoon into a baking paper-lined 30cm x 42cm swiss roll tin, smoothing top. Bake in centre of oven until cake springs back when lightly pressed (10-12 minutes). Turn onto a tea towel lined with baking paper. Peel paper from sponge and, with short side facing you, roll in tea towel to form a log. Stand until just cool (8-10 minutes).
  • 02
  • Whisk cream until soft peaks form, refrigerate until required. Unroll sponge, spread over purée, then cream. Reroll, dust with cocoa and serve immediately.

Note Chestnut purée is available in jars or cans from select delicatessens.
