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.

Cullen skink with wholemeal oat rolls and kale and lemon pesto


This wonderfully named soup originates in Cullen on the Moray coast in the north-east of Scotland, although ours isn't entirely traditional. And while the wholemeal rolls, inspired by a Dan Lepard recipe, are a take on Irish soda bread, the two go hand in hand.

You'll need

600 gm smoked haddock, skin removed 1 fresh bay leaf 40 gm butter, coarsely chopped 2 onions, thinly sliced 2 leeks (white part only), thinly sliced 1 fennel bulb, thinly sliced 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced 150 ml dry white wine 450 gm floury potatoes (about 3), such as sebago, cut into 4cm dice 2 tbsp double cream Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg   Wholemeal oat rolls 250 gm (1 cup) plain flour 200 gm (1 cup) wholemeal flour 3 tsp baking powder 1 tbsp brown sugar 350 ml milk 190 gm Greek-style yoghurt To garnish: poppy seeds and rolled oats 30 gm melted butter, for brushing   Kale and lemon pesto 150 ml olive oil 50 gm curly kale, finely chopped ½ cup (loosely packed) flat-leaf parsley 1 garlic clove, finely chopped Finely grated rind and juice of 1 lemon

Method

  • 01
  • Bring haddock, bay leaf and 1.5 litres cold water to the simmer in a large saucepan over medium heat until fish is cooked through and flakes apart easily (10-15 minutes), then strain, reserving stock. Flake the haddock and set aside.
  • 02
  • Heat butter in a large saucepan over low heat, add onion, leek, fennel and garlic, and sauté, stirring occasionally, until tender (10 minutes). Add wine, bring to the simmer, then add 1.25 litres reserved stock, bring to the simmer, add potatoes and cook until tender (30-35 minutes). Coarsely crush half the potatoes with a masher or fork, add cream, nutmeg and haddock, stir to combine, season to taste and keep warm.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, for wholemeal oat rolls, preheat oven to 200C. Stir flours, baking powder, sugar and 2 tsp sea salt flakes in a bowl to combine and form a well in the centre. Whisk together milk and yoghurt in a separate bowl, add to flour mixture, then mix to form a wet dough. Turn out onto a floured surface, shape into 9 balls, place on a tray lined with baking paper, scatter with poppy seeds and oats, and bake until golden (15-20 minutes). Brush with butter, scatter with sea salt to taste and set aside.
  • 04
  • For kale pesto, process ingredients in a small food processor to combine. Serve alongside hot Cullen skink and wholemeal oat rolls.
