    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

Today is the last day of Chanukah when we will light all 8 candles on our chanukiah.
We hope everyone (whether you celebrate this festival or not❤️) enjoyed potato latkes, doughnuts and lots of oily deliciousness. We love this 8 day license to eat fried food!

This is a festival celebrating the survival of the Jewish people since the destruction of the first temple over 2100 years ago in Jerusalem. Our candles are shining bright for all to see. Chag sameach to all xxx

It's gotta be doughnut time at your place, it certainly is at ours!
​We've given you the recipe and you just need to get cooking.
​Hot Jam Doughnuts.
​P. 182 Now for Something Sweet.
​Please note there is a small error in the ingredients list. For the water, the ml is correct but the cups are not. It should be 310 ml (1 ¼ cups/10 ½ fl oz).

​These are just so quick-ish (for yeast!) and easy to make. You need 90 mins for the first rise and about 30 mins for the second. The dough takes 2 mins to make, 5 mins to shape and 10 mins to fry! And they are just so bloody delicious!
