Australian desserts in Brisbane: Which ones will you try?
Brisbane's desserts include plenty of Australian classics – one of which is the peach melba, named after Dame Nellie Melba, a famous opera singer. Featuring sweet peaches, vanilla ice-cream and raspberries, it is simple, refreshing and utterly moreish. Moving on, both Australia and New Zealand may have staked their claim on having created the pavlova, but one thing is for sure: it got its name from legendary Russian prima ballerina Anna Pavlova, and is a decadent serving of meringues, fresh fruit and cream. Keen for an on-the-go snack you can store at the bottom of your handbag? Then don't forget the humble Anzac biscuit, originally created by the wives of servicemen fighting overseas in the war. These crunchy wonders are packed with oats, coconut, syrup and butter, and they are absolutely addictive!
