The ‘Life Changing’ Cinnamon Apple Pie

A perfect dairy-free dessert or afternoon tea cake.

This cinnamon and apple pie is an iconic Monday Morning Cooking Club recipe from the kitchen of Maxine Pacanowski in Sydney, Australia. It is in our first book, Monday Morning Cooking Club – the food, the stories, the sisterhood.

Since Chrissie Swan called it a ‘life changing apple pie’ on national television and Nigella Lawson wrote about it and baked her own version, it has been one of the most popular recipes in our collection. It is quick and easy to make, dairy free and just simply DELICIOUS.

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease and line the base and side of a 26 cm springform cake tin.
  2. Layer the apple slices in the prepared tin so they come about two-thirds of the way up the side. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the apples.
  3. Make a batter by beating the eggs and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the oil and vanilla and beat well, then stir in the flour. Spoon the batter on top of the cinnamon-covered apples and sprinkle with extra cinnamon sugar.
  4. Bake for 1 hour 20 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the cake. Cool in the tin. Serve warm with cream or ice cream.
  5. Note: To make cinnamon sugar to keep in your pantry, mix 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon with 1 cup caster (superfine) sugar

Today is the first day of Autumn! Where has the time gone?! This simple Tuna Tagine is perfect to celebrate the change in season. This recipe comes to us from Zoe and Adam, creator of @paperboykitchen in Melbourne’s CBD. View the full recipe below and via the link in our bio.

Ingredients
2 onions sliced
2 red capsicum (pepper) sliced
2 garlic cloves crushed
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp salt
1/2 bunch of flat leaf parsley chopped
4 waxy potatoes peeled and thinly sliced
1/2 lemon thinly sliced, pips removed
2 cups vegetable or chicken stock
4 tuna steaks
lemon juice and olive oil to serve
Servings 4 people

Instructions
Choose a tagine or casserole dish (at least 3 litres) with matching lid that can be taken from the stove directly to the dining table.

Fry the onions, peppers & garlic in the olive oil over medium heat until soft, about 15 minutes. Add the spices, salt and half the parsley and fry until fragrant, adding a little more oil if needed.

Divide the onion mix into three parts, leaving one part in the dish.

Divide the potato slices into three parts. Seasoning each layer as you go, place one third on top of the onion mix in the dish. Continue to layer potatoes and onion mix, finishing with potatoes. Top with the lemon slices and season.

Pour in enough stock to almost cover the vegetable layers; a few pieces can poke up above the liquid. Bring to the boil, reduce heat to a good simmer, then cover and cook on low heat for 40 minutes, or until the potatoes are soft.

Sprinkle the tuna steaks with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Lay over the tajine, replace the lid and let the tuna steam for 5-10 minutes, or until cooked through. If you prefer, sear the tuna in a hot pan and serve on top of the vegetables. Finish with a squeeze of lemon juice, sprinkle the remaining parsley and drizzle over some extra olive oil.

To mark the very last day of summer here in Australia (wah, we can't believe it!), we thought we’d share a beloved classic, the iconic pavlova 😉 The incorporation of sour cream into this pav adds welcome relief from all the sweetness. Figs are also currently in season here in Australia until mid-autumn so enjoy them while you can! We recently shared the full recipe of this gorgeous Fig and Caramel Sour Cream Pavlova (which appears in our latest book Now For Something Sweet) with NZ's
