Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Poppy seed chiffon

    • Astrid5555 on April 17, 2021

      My husband, who is not into poppy seeds at all, called this the best poppy seed cake he has ever eaten. Incredibly fluffy and light, very quick and easy to make, a keeper!

  • Coconut and passionfruit slab cake

    • lils74 on August 16, 2022

      This recipe can be found online here https://www.nigella.com/recipes/guests/monday-morning-cooking-clubs-coconut-and-passionfruit-slab-cake (note to self to try it out)

    • Lepa on August 16, 2022

      This cake is delicious. It's made of coconut and almond flour so it has a lovely, dense texture. The icing is great but was a bit too thick. I added a little bit of lemon juice to loosen it up.

    • ChelseaP on June 29, 2021

      A very delicious and moist cake! Keeps really well.

  • Orange almond bars

    • Lepa on December 01, 2021

      These were such a wonderful treat! The buttery short crust sandwiches a chewy almond/orange interior. The bars are not very sweet so the slick of icing makes them perfect. I had a hard time rolling out the layers and they were pretty sloppy but the recipe said not to worry about it and they did, in fact, work fine once baked. Everyone in my family just loved these.

  • Russian honey cake

    • lou_weez on May 02, 2021

      I made this 2 days prior to serving it after a celebration lunch and it was a huge hit!! Having tasted each element while assembling the cake, the flavours were good, but nothing too special. Once fully assembled and having been left for a couple of days, the flavours developed into a beautiful honey/toffee meets cream cheese bomb. The best!!!

  • Apple and jam oil cake

    • lou_weez on May 05, 2020

      A beautiful apple cake that I thought was better on the second day. Will make this again.

  • Spiced apple crumble

    • lou_weez on April 02, 2020

      I used pears instead of apples and halved the recipe. This was delicious.

  • Chocolate coconut milk cake

    • SpatulaClark on January 01, 2021

      This one was a mud cake style. Good next day, left at room temperature.

  • Carrot loaf cake

    • Lafro on May 18, 2022

      Very tasty and sweet. Although I found I used alot of bowls when making it. The glaze added an interesting texture as well. Might try to add some coconut next time.

'We are always dreaming of soft, airy, pale chiffon cake, thinking about chocolate-swirled, glossy yeasted babke, imagining flaky, chewy, jammy strudel, baking almond-studded, citrus-glazed Dutch buns, frying golden, syrup-drenched coiled fishuelas, biting into hot, sugared jam-filled doughnuts, eating crisp-shelled, marshmallowy vanilla-flecked meringues, feasting on sticky, steaming, sweet butterscotch pudding and sharing it all with abundance and love...'

The Monday Morning Cooking Club have been on a mission: to uncover, curate, honour and celebrate the very best, treasured, and most delicious sweet recipes from the Jewish community in Australia and from around the world. Alongside these precious recipes, they tell heartwarming and poignant stories of survival, loss, love, family and community.
