I was reading this Guardian article the other day: Smashed avo, anyone? Five Australian creations taking the world by storm. It lists 5 classic Australian foods (and a beverage) that you now see on menus overseas. These include: Avo on toast, corn fritters, flat white, sticky date pudding and laminations. After reading this I was inspired to make corn fritters as I haven’t made them in ages. 

Perfect at any time of the day, for breakfast, lunch, dinner or even a great snack. Corn Fritters are moorish and can be made very healthy. My version includes besan (chickpea) flour, ground flaxseeds and rocket and is dairy, gluten and egg free.
