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.

You'll need

250 ml sparkling white wine 220 gm (1 cup) caster sugar 1 vanilla bean, split, seeds scraped 4 ripe yellow peaches, stones removed, quartered To serve: toasted flaked almonds and raspberries   Raspberry granita 110 gm (½ cup) caster sugar 250 gm raspberries (about 2 punnets) 250 ml sparkling white wine   Almond milk ice-cream 500 ml (2 cups) almond milk (see note) 1 tbsp amaretto 5 egg yolks 100 gm caster sugar

Method

  • 01
  • For raspberry granita, stir sugar and 125ml water in a saucepan over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves, bring to the boil, simmer for 2 minutes, add raspberries and remove from heat. Process in a blender until smooth, strain through a fine sieve into a large shallow tray (discard seeds), add wine, stir to combine and freeze, scraping with a fork occasionally to form ice crystals (3-4 hours). Makes about 500ml.
  • 02
  • For almond milk ice-cream, bring milk and amaretto just to the boil in a saucepan over medium heat. Meanwhile, whisk yolks and sugar in a bowl until thick and pale. Pour in milk mixture, whisk to combine, return mixture to pan and stir over low-medium heat until mixture thinly coats the back of a spoon (5-6 minutes). Transfer to a bowl, set aside to cool, refrigerate to chill, then freeze in an ice-cream machine until required. Makes about 500ml.
  • 03
  • Stir wine, sugar and vanilla bean and seeds in a saucepan over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Bring to the simmer, add peaches, reduce heat to low and poach until just tender (5-10 minutes). Cool to room temperature, then refrigerate until chilled. Serve with scoops of almond milk ice-cream, raspberry granita, flaked almonds and extra raspberries.
Note Almond milk is available from supermarkets and health-food shops.
