The Custard Chiffon Cake: An MMCC Icon

We thought that Mothers' Day was the perfect day to share this heartwarming video.

Monday Morning Cooking Club’s Mother’s Day 2018

To celebrate Mother’s Day, we can never resist sharing this unique video of Merelyn making her late mother Yolan’s glorious – and now legendary –  custard chiffon cake. After years of persuasion, Yolan gave it to Merelyn but sadly never got to see it published. Merelyn treasures this recipe like no other, and feels her mother is with her every time she makes it.

Have a look at this beautiful video where you will learn all the secrets of this magical ‘yellow cake’, and gain a special insight into a special relationship.

The recipe can be found on page 35 of our first book Monday Morning Cooking Club (2011).

    Hi Lisa,. What temperature do you bake the chiffon and for how long? Thanks.

    1. Lisa Goldberg

      180C (conventional temp) for 1 hour or until completely cooked through

    That looks so lovely. The pan looks like quite a large one. What size pan should I use please?

Many of you know I have been on the growing 'don't buy Tassie salmon' bandwagon since reading Richard Flanagan's book Toxic about a year ago. It was shocking to see the state of the industry, and even more shocking that we thought we were eating something that was really good for us. This just-released video has strengthened my resolve (which I have to admit was waning as I am not sure how much impact we have all had) to continue and to spread the word.

Please share this post, or any post supporting this stand, it is such an important message - especially for those of us who used to love eating Tassie salmon.

And sadly this also applies to all the smoked salmon from Tassie including @huonsalmon which we all used to love.

Click on the link in our profile for the original @neighbours_of_fish_farming video. 🙏🏻 @joostbakker for posting the video, that's where I first saw it.

I have been buying NZ king salmon @regalsalmonnz @orakingsalmon and @alpinesalmon (Mt Cook, NZ, can buy at @harrisfarmmarkets) and exploring many other fish options. Check out @goodfishproject for an excellent guide to what we should be buying here in Aus.

We also need to rally the big buyers in Aus - @colessupermarkets @woolworths_au to stop buying farmed Tassie salmon until the industry has been cleaned up.

(btw when we were in beautiful Tassie last year, not one restaurant we went to served salmon. Doesn't that say something?)
