The Australian Fluffernutter sammich

Thanks for visiting. Please check out the rest of Yummy Lummy. I’d love it if you shared this site with your friends.

I have never heard of a Fluffernutter sandwich until I read about it on Little Monster Girl. Creator of Little Monster Girl, Jennifer explained what a Fluffernutter is. I’ve never seen marshmallow fluff in Australia but we do have peanut paste. I teased Jennifer a little about how I would make my own version and then I discovered on Wikipedia I really have no original thoughts. Anyway, I’m labelling this the Australian Fluffernutter sammich although I did suggest I would call it The Jennifer.

Sammich because this is an awesome sandwich and not the other (sexual) meaning of sammich. I’ll let you look that up on Urban Dictionary.

So without marshmallow fluff I used whole marshmallows and melted them under a grill. I also wanted to make this a fancy fluffernutter so I used raisin toast for some extra sweetness. I always like to have Nutella with my peanut paste (or jam or marmalade) so I added some Nutella. If I was going to toast this by pan frying it then for an Elvis Presley vibe I decided to add a banana. How awesome is this sammich???

So it always helps to have everything ready. Here are two slices of raisin toast on some baking paper. You can see I’m using Nutella, peanut paste, and Coles marshmallows.

I arranged the marshmallows in a pretty pattern and spread some peanut paste on the other slice of raisin toast. This then went under the grill and you can see a pattern of marshmallows and peanut paste on raisin toast.

I then added some sliced banana and Nutella

The finished product was pretty slippery. I had trouble cutting it and keeping the slices of raisin toast together.

So what was my verdict? OMG this is a great sammich. The marshmallow, peanut paste, Nutella and banana all go so well together. Frying it all in a case of raisin toast just makes raisin toast better.

So what do you think? Would you make an Australian fluffernutter sammich?

  1. I have never heard of this fluffernutter sammich. Just reading this post, I must try it, or at least your version. It looks so good, such a great treat. This is not something I would have for breakfast. In fact, it could be a lunch or late night snack for me 😀

  2. Looks incredibly sweet, like a candy dessert. We have marshmallow fluff in jars and tubs. I haven’t eaten it in decades. I’m tempted to try it now, though, inspired by your post.

  3. I remember Fluffernutter from my childhood. It was a big thing back in the 1960s/70s when I was growing up. Here is the commercial jingle from back then. To be honest I did not like that product then and of course I cannot eat anything that sweet or gooey now.

  4. I have definitely never heard of this before Gary and I recall your daughters live in Brisbane and think you must have lived there or somewhere in Queensland? – as you call peanut butter ‘peanut paste’ which is exactly what my Queensland friend does.

    1. Yes Sue, it’s very much a Queensland thing but it was also common in SA and WA which had similar legislation that meant only real butter could be called butter. This is no longer the case but I still say peanut paste.
