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.

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."

Pea and cucumber rice salad


Rice salad may be old-school, but with plenty of herbs and a tangy lemon dressing, it becomes old-school cool. Cook the rice and toss it with the dressing the night before, and store the vegetable part separately to prevent it being discoloured by the dressing. Toss them together just before serving.

You'll need

350 gm brown rice 1 garlic clove, crushed Finely grated rind and juice of 2 lemons, or to taste 2 tbsp white wine vinegar 130 ml olive oil 200 gm frozen peas 2 Lebanese cucumbers, halved, seeds scooped out, thinly sliced 3 spring onions, thinly sliced ½ cup each coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley, mint and dill

Method

  • 01
  • Cook rice in a saucepan of boiling salted water until tender (25-30 minutes), then drain and rinse under cold running water, drain well and transfer to a large bowl.
  • 02
  • Combine garlic, and lemon rind and juice in a bowl and stand until garlic softens (1-2 minutes). Whisk in vinegar and oil, season generously to taste, then pour dressing over rice, stir to coat well, cover and refrigerate until required.
  • 03
  • Blanch peas until bright green (1-2 minutes), drain and refresh, then drain well. Combine in a container with cucumber, spring onion, parsley, mint and dill, cover and refrigerate until required.
  • 04
  • Just before serving, toss pea mixture through rice mixture, adjust seasoning and serve.
