The traditional Australian evening meal is often followed by a serving of sweets or dessert. This can take many forms including tropical fruits such as passion fruit or mangos, custards, creamed rice, puddings, fruit and pudding pies, cheese cakes, Pavlova (a meringue like dessert), and pikelets (tiny pancakes) covered with Golden syrup (a cane sugar syrup). Weather and time of year have a big impact on choice of sweets. In winter the evening might be topped off with a hot cup of Milo.
