    Being in Australia, Passover usually falls in or around the Easter school holidays, which means camping for many Aussies. So I’m looking for ideas to use during passover while camping.There must be some one-pot, one-pan or wrapped-in-foil-and-put-on-the-fire recipe wonders kicking around? We are especially after brekkie ideas instead of pancakes, breads etc

    Jen Mc-F – First time i saw this website – but thought I’d reply: beware mostly of WHAT type of “flour” you use: it needs to be flour MADE FROM MATZO. Then use it in the recipes. Probably good not to make an “oven” (a vessel in which your “matzo-flour” is totally enclosed) so as not to raise the dough, but some are not so wary of this and do this. Many people don’t use their ovens at all on Pesach. I myself try not to eat anything “leavened (raised)”. My Father z”l made the world’s beset Matzo-brye! That was our breakfast! Pour boiling water over 2 matzos/person in a bowl, mix till all the matzos have absorbed water. Add 1 egg/person, 1tsp oil/person to the mix, maybe salt. Heat up the frying pan (I prefer butter). Turn over when brown. YUM. Pesach sameach from Chaya in Tel-Aviv

      Thanks Chaya for your advice and recipe! Lovely to hear from you, wishing you a pesach sameach from all of us in Sydney 🙂

    Yummy! I just made this for the first time, but used almonds as that’s what I had at home. Is it meant to have an egg taste or should I have used more nuts and chocolate?

    1. Lisa Goldberg

      Hi Shirley
      It is fine to substitute different nuts in this cake. Sometimes cakes with lots of eggs do taste eggy – it may be because the cake is slighty overcooked (so maybe try 10 minutes less next time) or perhaps then strong flavour of the walnuts is a better balance for the eggs than almonds with a less strong flavour. Hope this helps! Cheers,
      Lisa

Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement, is here and many in our Jewish community will be fasting from just before sunset this evening for 25 hours.⁠

Some of us (🙋‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️)have spent the last week obsessing about what meal we will eat to start the fast (not too salty to avoid thirst, low GI to hopefully allay those inevitable hunger pangs, do we go traditional or not...)⁠
And then there is a completely new conversation about what to eat to break the fast (cinnamon buns or babke, a full meal of brisket and potatoes, a lighter option with pasta and fish and then the inevitable comment 'I could just have a cup of tea and a piece of cake and go to bed' (which of course no-one seems to ever do)⁠

So many debates going on! ⁠

We hope whatever you choose is exactly what you need to make it an easy fast, and on the other side is exactly what you need so you don't finish the meal holding your belly and moaning😜 (we've all been there).⁠

We wish everyone chag sameach, g’mar chatima Tova, and may you have an easy fast!⁠

Love to all,⁠
Lisa, Jaks, Merelyn and Natty ⁠
