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?
