Updated: Jun 4

Australia boasts many culinary specialties, with baked goods being a standout. At Miami Bakehouse, we pride ourselves on baking the best of Aussie classic sweet treats in Mandurah. Whether it’s the indulgent Vanilla Slice, the celebratory Lamington, the iconic Custard Tart, or a refreshing Lemon Slice, our treats are crafted by hand and with love. Each bite is a celebration of Australia's baking heritage that helped define our Land Down Under!

Vanilla Slice

Ah, the Classic Australian Vanilla Slice—a dessert that reigns supreme among the nation’s sweet treats and stands as a testament to Australia's baking prowess. Imagine biting into a slice where layers of crisp, golden puff pastry cradle a rich, velvety vanilla custard. This is not just any dessert; it’s a harmonious blend of textures and flavours that have been perfected by our expert sweet treat bakers at Miami Bakehouse.

Each bite offers a delicate balance of sweetness and creaminess, with the subtle vanilla flavour whispering of nostalgia and comfort. It’s more than just a dessert; it’s an experience that has woven itself into the fabric of Australian culture. Passed down through generations, the Vanilla Slice is a timeless indulgence that captures the rich flavours defining the land Down Under.


Step into the world of delectable Australian delights and discover the Classic Australian Lamington. This isn’t just any ordinary cake; it’s a symbol of comfort and celebration, especially with the special touch we add at Miami Bakehouse with our signature chocolate sponge Lamingtons.

Imagine sinking your teeth into a rich chocolate sponge coated in velvety chocolate icing and generously showered with desiccated coconut. The soft, chocolatey goodness unfolds a delicate balance of sweetness and cocoa, leaving an impression that lingers like a fond memory. Each batch is handmade with love and tradition by our specialty baking team, ensuring that every bite is a celebration of craftsmanship and joy.

The Lamington is widely believed to have been created by accident in the late 19th or early 20th century. The most popular story is that a chef working for Lord Lamington, the Governor of Queensland from 1896 to 1901, was faced with unexpected guests. In a hurry, the chef dipped some leftover sponge cake in chocolate and rolled it in desiccated coconut to make it less messy and more presentable. This quick improvisation turned out to be a culinary success, and the dessert was named in honour of Lord Lamington.

Custard Tart

The Australian Custard Tart is a delightful twist on the classic custard tart, evolving into a beloved icon in Aussie bakeries and households. While its origins can be traced back to European recipes, the Australian version stands out with its unique characteristics.

Our Custard Tart at Miami Bakehouse features a buttery shortcrust pastry base that perfectly complements the creamy custard filling. Rich and velvety, the custard is infused with a hint of vanilla for a subtle sweetness, topped with a sprinkle of nutmeg or cinnamon to add an extra layer of flavour complexity. Every tart is crafted with the finest ingredients and attention to detail, inviting you to savour each delicious moment and embodying the warmth and hospitality of Australian culture.

Lemon Slice

Looking for a treat that’s not too sweet? Our Lemon Slice is the perfect balance of tangy and sweet, combining the zesty freshness of lemon with the comforting crunch of Milk Arrowroot biscuits. This no-bake delight offers a burst of citrusy flavour in every bite.

The crushed Milk Arrowroot biscuits create a satisfying crunch that contrasts beautifully with the smooth, tangy lemon filling. The velvety lemon and coconut blend results in a luscious texture that sets to perfection as it chills. It’s a refreshing treat that dances on the taste buds and satisfies any sweet, citrusy craving.

Next time you're craving a taste of Australia, remember that every bite of our handcrafted delights is a celebration of tradition, quality, and the warm, welcoming spirit of Aussie baking. Come visit us at Miami Bakehouse and let us share these cherished flavours with you—because there's nothing quite like a sweet journey through Australia's best!
