Time for a Tea Party: We’ve got the Recipe!

Lemon Myrtle Teacakes for your tea party or teddy bear’s picnic! These muffins were inspired by our Guardian Chef’s visit to a Bush Tucker Garden in Sydney.

Aboriginal food, also known as Bush Food or Bush Tucker includes the herbs, fruits, bulbs, and meat consumed by the indigenous people of Australia. Lemon Myrtle has a fresh aroma of citrus, with a lingering menthol essence and a strong lemon flavour, which is not only sweet and refreshing but has high nutritional value too.

The children of Guardian Queen Street and Guardian Barangaroo are often involved in the preparation of their menu and enjoy working, cooking and chatting with the chef through the open window during their day at the centre.

This flavour is a regular favourite and we invite you to download the recipe below and cook these at home with your children too.
