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.

Rolled pork belly stuffed with Calvados prunes


The union of pork, apple brandy and prunes is a particularly happy one. Serve this dish with roasted potatoes, potato chips, potato gratin or pretty much anything else potatoey.

You'll need

125 ml Calvados 150 gm pitted prunes 1.6 kg piece of boneless pork belly   Bread stuffing 80 ml (1/3 cup) olive oil 1 onion, thinly sliced 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped 1 tbsp sherry vinegar 130 gm fresh, fine breadcrumbs from soft white bread 2 tbsp thinly sliced sage leaves

Method

  • 01
  • For bread stuffing, heat oil in a frying pan over low-medium heat, add onion and garlic and sauté until golden (5-6 minutes), then add vinegar and simmer until evaporated (10-20 seconds). Stir through breadcrumbs and sage, season to taste and set aside to cool to room temperature.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, bring Calvados to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add prunes, remove from heat and set aside to cool to room temperature.
  • 03
  • Score pork skin with a knife, place skin-side down on a work surface, with longest side facing you, season to taste, spread with an even layer of stuffing and place prunes in a line along centre. Roll to enclose, tie with kitchen string at 5cm intervals and place in a roasting pan. Rub skin with sea salt, refrigerate to draw out excess moisture (1 hour).
  • 04
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 250C. Pat excess moisture from pork and roast for 15 minutes, reduce heat to 180C and cook until golden brown and tender (1¼ hours). Slice and serve immediately.
