Melbourne is a really vibrant city with a lot to do and see. If you choose this Marvellous town for your trip or study, you’ll surely find yourself having a sweet tooth on occasion, so here’s a list of Australian Desserts to give you some hints. Are you staying in a hotel room? Or you chose a private rental in Melbourne? Both will do the work for satisfying your sweet craving.
From a hotel room to a private rental in Melbourne, everyone wants something sweet once in a while (or very often)
Aussies have a serious relationship with food. The commitment is particularly visible in Melbourne, from the busy streets with cafès and restaurants, to all the goods found in big or small groceries stores or bakeries. Your trip to Melbourne, the foodie capital of Australia, will tempt you with amazing sweets and desserts. If you opt for private rentals in Melbourne instead of a hotel room, the relationship you’ll be able to achieve with your host will be rewarding. You’ll also have the freedom to eat some sweet, sweet food whenever you want.
Here’s some tempting guidance about what you’ll find to satisfy your need for sugar. We at Homestay Harmony would love to eat all of it and beyond. Hence, we choose a few of our favourite Australian desserts for you to try.
We have talked about lamingtons and fairy bread here, so take a look to gain some more inspirations for your foodie tour.
Here we have our favourite Australian desserts:
We can’t start talking about Australian desserts without naming the delicious pavlova, also because it’s practically the Australian national dessert. This mouthwatering dish is made with layers of gooey meringue inside and crispy outside, whipped cream and various kinds of fruit. It was named for the 20s Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova and well… It’s just perfect.
This favourite Australian stable has made its appearance around 1970 and has been adopted by different bakeries around the country. In Melbourne, you can find plenty that serves this sweet treat. The yummy slice has a biscuits base, with a layer of buttery caramel and a thick external layer of chocolate. Chocolate and caramel, what’s not to love?
Here is our suggestion: if you chose a private rental in Melbourne, stack the freezer with these little treats for your whole stay! Having your own place will help you cope with the addiction this ice cream induces, with its toffee-vanilla taste. Golden Gaytime is also covered in chocolate and then dipped in tiny cookie bits. You can find some limited editions, such as fairy floss, from time to time.
Take 2 slices of flaky pastry coated in icing sugar, fill it abundantly (we repeat, abundantly) with vanilla custard, and serve it. This Australian staple is served everywhere, you can explore Melbourne’s bakery scene to find your favourite recipe. Vanilla is typical, but not the only flavour you can find so allow yourself to get creative.
The Cherry Ripe bar
Cherry, coconut, and chocolate. The Cherry Ripe bar is the oldest Australian chocolate bar, and it’s well-beloved for a reason. Try it out and let us know if you can imagine what it is.
Coconut, again. Just like Lamington, Aussies love coconut because it’s delicious. This sweet treat is made with a biscuit base, jam, icing, and coconut.
