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."

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.

Crab and avocado tortillas


Tortillas don't have to be perfectly round, but the thinner you make them, the better. Make sure you use a good-quality lard.

You'll need

1 tbsp cumin seeds 500 gm picked blue swimmer crabmeat 2 avocado, flesh coarsely chopped 2 cups (loosely packed) coriander To serve: lime wedges To serve: hot sauce, such as Tabasco   Wheat flour tortillas 225 gm (1½ cups) bread flour 60 gm lard

Method

  • 01
  • For wheat flour tortillas, preheat oven to 100C. Place flour in a large bowl, add lard and rub in with fingertips until mixture resembles breadcrumbs, then make a well in the centre. Combine 250ml water and 1 tsp sea salt, add to flour and mix until combined. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic (3-4 minutes). Wrap in plastic wrap and set aside to rest (30 minutes). Heat a flat griddle or large frying pan over low heat. Roll a tablespoonful of dough into a 15cm-diameter circle and grill, turning once, until just coloured (1-2 minutes each side). Repeat with remaining dough. Meanwhile, wrap cooked tortillas in foil and keep warm in oven. Makes about 20.
  • 02
  • Dry-roast cumin in a small saucepan until fragrant (1 minute), set aside. Fill tortillas with crabmeat, avocado and coriander, sprinkle with cumin, fold to enclose, serve immediately with lime wedges and hot sauce to the side.
