"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."
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.

Rolling the pasta dough
To roll 600gm of fresh egg pasta dough, cut the rested dough into six equal pieces. Flatten each piece with the ends of your fingers and the palm of your hand, then pass through a pasta machine, starting with the widest setting and then slowly reducing the width. Pass the pasta through each setting at least twice. After about the third setting, fold the pasta and pass it through the machine several more times. Folding helps to create a flat edge to the pasta, and as you fold and pass it through, make sure that the dough is as wide as the rollers. This is especially important when pasta sheets are to be used for baked or filled pasta. Throughout this process, dust the pasta sheets with a little extra flour.
For filled pasta, moist dough is better as it helps when bending and twisting filled pasta shapes. For flat pasta such as pappardelle, tagliatelle, linguine and spaghetti, it is important to dry the pasta sheets a little prior to cutting them, otherwise they will stick together while they are drying or cooking. The drying could take anywhere between five and 45 minutes, depending on the humidity level, air temperature and other weather conditions. Be careful not to allow the pasta to dry out too much as it will break when cut.
Filled pasta should be refrigerated, and cooked and eaten within a day or two. Store with abundant semolina to stop the pieces sticking together, with plastic wrap between the layers.
Fresh flat pasta is also best eaten soon after it is made. Remember, the longer it dries after cutting, the longer the cooking time. My suggestion is to dry it completely on wooden boards if you do not intend to cook it straight away. Dried pasta can be stored at ambient temperature for several weeks.
