The Queen’s Birthday long weekend in Australia coincides with the start of winter. That means it’s the perfect time to dig out those warming and comforting British Dessert recipes.
Here are 12 of the best traditional British Desserts from the Cooking with Nana Ling collection and around the web.
1. Treacle Tart
A British classic that can be served warm or cold. Harry Potter’s favourite!
2. Brandy Snaps
Another golden classic (with a little brandy to warm up dessert time).
Popular in the north of England, these scone-like treats are cooked in a hot griddle pan.
4. Mince Pies
Some Cornish Shortbread with your cup of tea? Yes, please!
Golden syrup, oats, ginger and other warming ingredients make this the ultimate comfort dessert.
9. Jubilee Cake
London bakers prepare these for celebratory occasions. You can make it for whatever reason you like!
10. Canary Pudding
A traditional English steamed pudding that’ll brighten the dreariest winter days.
Is there anything more British than a cup of Earl Grey Tea? Perhaps these Earl Grey Cookies!
There’s always room for another piece of shortbread, and always space for another shortbread recipe.
