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."

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.

Method

  • 01
  • Process carrot, celery, onion, leek and garlic in a food processor until finely chopped. Heat butter and 25ml olive oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat until foaming, add vegetable mixture and stir occasionally until very soft and sweet (8-10 minutes). Finely chop 2 prosciutto slices, add to pan and sauté until crisp (1-2 minutes), remove from heat, add half the thyme, season to taste and cool completely.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for red wine lentils, heat oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat, add onion, carrot, celery and garlic and stir occasionally until tender (8-10 minutes). Add tomato, stock, lentils and wine, simmer until lentils are just tender (12-15 minutes), then add radicchio and cook until just wilted (2-3 minutes). Season to taste, stir through parsley and keep warm.
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Combine red wine vinegar, lemon rind and juice, remaining olive oil and remaining thyme in a bowl, season to taste and set aside.
  • 04
  • Rinse quail inside and out under cold running water, then pat dry with absorbent paper. Season to taste, then stuff each cavity with vegetable mixture, truss legs with kitchen twine and wrap each in a prosciutto slice. Place in a small roasting pan, drizzle with thyme mixture and roast until golden and just cooked through (12-15 minutes), cover with foil and rest for 5 minutes then serve with pan juices and red wine lentils.
