All you need to do is bake the mixture for 15 minutes at 170 degrees Celsius and then drizzle melted chocolate and coconut on top. 

‘Everyone says Australia doesn’t have a cultural dish,’ Vanessa wrote alongside her video. 

‘This is my Aussie family recipe.’

Since the video was posted, more than 400,000 people have watched it, with many saying they have never heard of such a delicacy.

‘I’ve never seen this in my life and I’m Australian,’ one woman posted.

‘Me as an Australian, what the f**k is that?’ another commenter added.

Many said they think of the dish as a New Zealand dish or something regional.

Others disagreed with calling it Australia’s national dish, saying that Bunnings sausage sandwiches and Anzac biscuits are what the country is known for.

Australian cultural dish is fairy bread as far as I’m concerned,’ one person wrote.
