6 typical Australian sweet dishes

If there's one thing we Aussies love, it's sweet treats. Whenever we get the chance to celebrate, there are treats to try. Discover these traditional Australian recipes to celebrate national days or add an aussie touch to your festivities.

Pavlova

This dessert is historically disputed between Australia and New Zealand. This fruit tart has a baked French meringue base that serves as the bowl for the contents, which are basically whipping cream. Once the meringue and filling are made, we take red fruits or other seasonal fruits to put on top and decorate the pavlova. The idea is to make a rustic tart with peaks of meringue, ideal for a refreshing afternoon.

Lamingtons

How could you pass up this classic Australian snack. With ingredients you can find in any Australian supermarket, these little squares of sponge cake are perfect for a birthday party or an afternoon in the park. The cake is made with flour, eggs, butter, sugar, milk and other ingredients. But the characteristic feature is the chocolate coating with grated coconut that captivates every palate.

Anzac cookies

These biscuits serve as a tribute to commemorate the lives of those who fought in the great joint military operation between Australia and New Zealand during the First World War. These oat and coconut cookies are a delightful treat to accompany this patriotic day. The recipe also includes golden syrup and butter.

Banana damper

Who doesn't love banana preparations? This traditional Australian sweet dish can be your next ally in getting to work and looking good with your colleagues. Flour, brown sugar, butter, bananas and nuts. With these simple elements that you can find in every supermarket you have an Australian sweet dish in your hand.

Tim Tam barks

Is there a more iconic sweet in Australia? To take Tim Tam bars to the next level you can break them into a zip lock bag, melt chocolate in a saucepan and mix the two ingredients together. Then spread the contents on a metal board, a few hours in the fridge and you have a delicious dessert in your possession - don't eat it all in one sitting!

Neenish tarts

These little treats are very popular in Australia and New Zealand. The base is made of a shortbread biscuit and sugar. Inside it has a strawberry jam and cream. Finally, a two-tone icing on top to make them beautifully ready to eat. All the ingredients are very affordable and you can find them in any supermarket.
