Introducing the Reader Recipe Exchange

Banana Chocolate Cake

Welcome to “Reader Recipe Exchange,” a new monthly feature in the Jewish Light. We kicked this month’s off with a couple of staff heirloom recipes, now we’d like to hear from you.

Please share your favorite family recipes with us. When submitting, be sure to include all the ingredients and step-by-step directions. Remember to specify how long the recipe should be cooked and at what oven temperature. Recipes should be sent to [email protected] — be sure to write “recipe exchange” in the message field. Or send them to Recipe Exchange c/o St. Louis Jewish Light, Suite 3010, 6 Millstone Campus Drive, 63146. Feel free to upload (or send) a picture of the finished dish, and if you’d like, include yourself and your family with the dish or enjoying the food.

Please include your name, a daytime phone number, area where you live (Creve Coeur, St. Louis city, Chesterfield, etc.) and a story about the recipe in 100 words or less.
