The cult Aussie biscuit is available in doughnut form next week only.
Some say Tim Tams are Australia’s greatest export, and woe betide anyone who disagrees with that. (FYI for those not in the know: they’re like Penguin bars, although any self-respecting Aussie will likely tell you they’re better). If you’re never tried one, you’re about to get a gilt-edged opportunity to do so, as London doughnut legends Crosstown Doughnuts have brought back their Tim Tam doughnuts ahead of Anzac Day.
Anzac Day, which falls on April 25, commemorates and celebrates those who served Australia and New Zealand in wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations. Crosstown have previously unveiled the Tim Tam doughnuts for Australia Day, but since we were all in lockdown for that one, here’s our chance to eat delicious doughnuts in the springtime sun. The Tim Tam doughnut features a cocoa sourdough, filled with chocolate custard made from Tim Tams, and topped with Tim Tam milk chocolate ganache and chopped Tim Tam pieces. (I have now typed Tim Tam so much the words have lost all meaning).
Anyway, it’s not the only Aussie doughnut on the menu; you can also sink your teeth into the Lamnut, based on the classic lamington. It’s flavoured with homemade raspberry jam, dipped in dark chocolate, and rolled in desiccated coconut, and between the two of them they’re sure to split loyalties amongst Aussies and Kiwis. Unless you get both?
The doughnuts are available from April 19-25, and cost £4.50, £22 for a pack of six, or £38 for a pack of twelve. Pick them up from Crosstown’s London and Cambridge stores, or order online here.
