The vanilla slice is an Australian bakery classic that continues to hold its own. Sure, it’s a big hit at bake sales and kid’s parties, but it won’t take much convincing to get you baking a vanilla slice recipe on any given weekend, either.

Also known as a custard slice, the Aussie riff on millefeuille consists of thick custard layers sandwiched between crisp layers of puff pastry. Put simply, it is pastry perfection.

Here are our four very best vanilla slice recipes for when you want a hit of nostalgia. From a classic version sprinkled with icing sugar to a citrus-spiked yuzu vanilla slice and our ever-popular passionfruit and vanilla slab, these sweet-treat recipes will see you through.
