I hope all of my fellow Australians are enjoying the long weekend and celebrating Australia Day the best way we know how – with food!
I’ve rounded up my favourite Australian-inspired desserts to share with you for some patriotic baking inspiration today. Enjoy!
Tim Tams are possible our nation’s favourite biscuits, and they make a delicious and easy base and topping for this cheesecake.
Whether it’s technically an Australian or New Zealand creation, we love pavlovas, especially ones with Nutella!
Buzzfeed described this recipe as “It doesn’t get much more Australian – or delicious.” and I have to agree!
♥ Chocolate Joys – A Chocolate Crackle/Honey Joys hybrid
This recipe takes two of my favourite Aussie childhood sweet treats and reinvents into a tasty hybrid treat with an adult twist.
These ANZAC biscuits were traditionally baked by anxious wives and mothers during World War I and sent to the Australian soldiers in the trenches, and are now a staple in any Aussie baker’s repertoire.
A green and gold pavlova! Pure patriotism! Plus it tastes great too.
And last but certainly not least, is my Lamington Cake with Milo icing. You beauty.
What are you baking for Australia Day?
