10 Ways to Celebrate Australia Day


Australia Day

Are you searching for  a little Australia Day inspiration?.

You are?

Good because I have come up with a collection. They are of course knowing me, mostly desserts but I am very sure you will be inspired to get cooking this weekend.The Cherry Ripe Slice above is a given. It’s a much loved classic. I have been making this one for years. It’s baked and that is what makes it both caramel y around the edges and perfect for a picnic because it DOESN’T rely on a refrigerator to hold it together. Even Skater loves this one.

  1. Find the recipe here– Cherry Ripe Slice @My Kitchen Stories

Oh my goodness. I love this idea below, don’t you? They are pretty and by all accounts very delicious. A bowl of these on the table would make your day   

    2. No Bake Iced Vovo Balls  from Swah @Love Swah.  They just have to be the best new Australian idea this year

What about this one from Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella. Do you think you could handle a Frozen Chocolate Bomb?

3.   Here is the recipe for this giant Tim Tam Bomb. Wow it looks amazing!

OR this from Sara @ Belly Rumble’s

Cheeselova. The best of two worlds. Pavlova meets Cheesecake. She made it for Christmas but I think it is perfect for Australia Day.

Could you, would you, resist Baby Lamingtons ?. No of course not and they from me @ My Kitchen Stories. Oh what a great picnic food to make if you are going to an Australia Day ceremony. Perhaps becoming an Aussie.  You must take a plate of these and offer them around.

7. Baby Lamingtons with Raspberry Dipping Sauce

8. Oven Baked BBQ Pork Ribs

And I just had to include these golden looking Sausage rolls from Charlie @ Hotly Spiced.  If Charlie can make sausage rolls with homemade sauce amongst everything else she has to do, then we can too. They look like perfect party/ picnic food too!
