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.

Best feta recipes

Feta's tang livens up all sorts of dishes, from beef shin rigatoni or blistered kale ribs to Greek-style roast lamb neck.

Recipes with zucchini

Whether served raw with olive oil, grated with fresh herbs, or pan-fried in a pancake - zucchini is a must-have ingredient when it comes to spring cooking.

Pickett's Deli & Rotisserie, Melbourne

Here’s Pickett’s inside running on the menu at Melbourne's new European-style eatery and wine bar Pickett's Deli & Rotisserie.

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.

Cinnamon pancakes with whipped maple butter and candied walnuts


If you love a sweet-meets-savoury combo, these pancakes are great with crisp fried bacon.

You'll need

120 gm unsalted butter, slightly softened and coarsely chopped 450 ml milk 50 gm raw caster sugar 3 eggs, separated Large pinch of cinnamon 380 gm self-raising flour Pinch of cream of tartar For dusting: icing sugar, sieved   Candied walnuts 100 gm walnuts 220 gm (1 cup) caster sugar   Whipped maple butter 200 gm softened butter 175 gm (½ cup) maple syrup, plus extra to serve Large pinch of cinnamon

Method

  • 01
  • For candied walnuts, preheat oven to 180C. Roast walnuts on an oven tray until golden (3-5 minutes). Meanwhile, bring sugar and 80ml water to the simmer in a small saucepan over medium heat, stir until sugar dissolves and brush down sides of pan with a wet pastry brush to remove any sugar particles. Increase heat to high and cook until caramel (5-10 minutes). Add walnuts, stir to coat, transfer to an oiled tray and set aside to cool (10-15 minutes).
  • 02
  • For whipped maple butter, beat butter in an electric mixer until light and fluffy, gradually add maple syrup, beating well after each addition, then stir through cinnamon. Place spoonfuls onto a tray lined with baking paper and refrigerate until semi-firm (15-25 minutes).
  • 03
  • Melt half the unsalted butter in a small saucepan over high heat, then cook until just golden (2-3 minutes). Cool slightly.
  • 04
  • Meanwhile, reduce oven to 160C. Whisk milk, sugar, yolks, cinnamon and a large pinch of salt in a large bowl to combine. Whisk in melted butter, then sieve over flour and fold in until just combined.
  • 05
  • Whisk eggwhites with cream of tartar in a separate large bowl until firm peaks form, then fold into flour mixture.
  • 06
  • Melt 1 tsp butter in a 12cm-diameter non-stick frying pan over low heat, add a ladleful of batter and cook until bubbles appear and pancake begins to puff (2-3 minutes). Turn and cook until pancake is cooked through and light golden (2-3 minutes), transfer to an oven tray lined with baking paper and keep warm in oven. Wipe pan clean and repeat process until butter and batter are used. Serve warm topped with maple butter, candied walnuts and a dusting of icing sugar, with extra maple syrup.
