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.

Southern-style flat-iron with potato and corn hash and baby cos with buttermilk dressing


The flat-iron steak, so named for its shape, is oyster blade with the sinew removed.

You'll need

6 flat-iron steaks 2 baby cos lettuces To serve: hot sauce   Potato and corn hash 6 golden shallots, diced 2 tbsp dripping, lard or olive oil 4 royal blue potatoes (about 600gm), finely diced or coarsely grated 2 garlic cloves, crushed 2 corn cobs, kernels removed 125 ml (½ cup) chicken stock 1 tbsp finely chopped flat-leaf parsley   Buttermilk dressing 200 ml buttermilk 100 gm mayonnaise ½ white onion, finely chopped 1 garlic clove, crushed 1 bunch chives, finely chopped ¼ cup coarsely chopped flat leaf parsley ¼ cup coarsely chopped dill

Method

  • 01
  • For buttermilk dressing, combine ingredients, season to taste and refrigerate until required. (This dressing tastes better the next day, but just a good chilling of 2-3 hours will be enough.)
  • 02
  • For potato and corn hash, cook shallots in dripping in a saucepan over medium heat (you can do this on the barbecue) until golden, tender and starting to caramelise (10-15 minutes), then add potatoes and garlic and stir occasionally until potatoes are tender (10-15 minutes). Add corn and chicken stock and stir until stock has evaporated and corn is tender (2-3 minutes), then season to taste and set aside.
  • 03
  • Barbecue steaks over medium to medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until cooked to your liking (3-4 minutes each side for medium-rare). Set aside to rest (5 minutes).
  • 04
  • Tear cos into a bowl, drizzle with buttermilk dressing and serve with steak and potato hash.
