Caramilk is an Aussie icon, so of course it had to be included in this mashup of Australian desserts.


Start by making the sponge. Cream together the butter and sugar, then add the eggs one at a time, beating until everything is light and fluffy.

Add the vanilla and milk, and gently beat that in. Sift together the flour and baking powder, then fold that into the wet mixture along with the salt

Preheat the oven to 160 C fan. Line a 20 x 30 pan with greaseproof paper, then pour in the batter. Smooth out the top, then pop into the oven for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.

Allow to cool for 5 minutes before removing from the pan, place on a wire rack, and leave to cool completely - around 1 to 2 hours

Meanwhile, make the ganache. Warm the cream in a pan over medium heat, bringing it to a simmer not a boil.

Finely chop the Caramilk, and place into a bowl. Pour over the warm cream, cover with a plate, then leave to sit for 2-3 minutes.

Remove the plate, stir, and everything should be smooth and luscious. Finish with a little pinch of salt.

Allow the ganache to cool for at least 30 minutes. Cut the cake into squares, then freeze the squares for 1 hour to avoid crumbs in the ganache.

Spread a thin layer of melted caramilk over two squares, then roll the squares, one at a time, in hundreds and thousands so they’re completely covered. Once both squares are covered, pipe a thick layer of ganache in between them. Repeat with the remaining squares, and enjoy!
