Many of us will have endured the ‘eyes bigger than our belly’ experience, although we honestly don’t think that is possible on this occasion.
In what can only be described as heavenly, doughnut giants Crosstown have crafted two mouth-watering creations in honour of Anzac Day, a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand on April 25 to commemorate those who served their country.
Now, the bakery is proud to give us Brits a taste of history alongside Aussie and Kiwi life with their Tim Tam and Lamnut delicacies.
The Tim Tam is an Australian sweet treat, likened to the UK’s classic Penguin, that boasts a decadent chocolate biscuit with a choco cream sandwich filling in the centre.
In doughnut form, your tastebuds will get a kick from chocolate sourdough filled with a choco custard made from Tim Tams, topped with a Tim Tam ganache and crushed Tim Tam pieces.
That’s a Tim Tam holy trinity! And we’re salivating just thinking about it.
Meanwhile, the Lamnut takes inspiration from the lamington cake, which is made from sponge cake coated in an outer layer of chocolate sauce and rolled in desiccated coconut.
The Crosstown revamp also features a delicious layer of raspberry jam through the middle.
As well as honouring heritage from Down Under, you are guaranteed to enjoy top quality taste as the bakery vows to deliver on handcrafted, fresh produce.
Their staff roll all of the dough by hand, make all of the jams, compotes, fillings, glazes and toppings in-house, fresh every day, while using the finest ingredients to gift honest flavour.
Having initially launched as a market stall back in 2014 at London’s notorious Leather Lane, Crosstown now have multiple locations across the city with one in Cambridge too.
Speaking about their upcoming taste of Oz, co-founder Adam Wills said he is excited to reintroduce the limited-edition doughnuts which proved a hit last year.
Adam said: “Antipodean culture is in Crosstown’s DNA. We’ve shipped in a mountain of ingredients for these fan-favourite doughnuts, ready to give our fellow Aussies and Kiwis a taste of home during the Anzac Day commemorations.
“But, with limited supplies, people should place a pre-order early to secure their delivery.”

Be quick though, the Anzac Day flavours are available from April 19-25 only.
