A lamington is a dessert of Australian origin. It consists of squares of sponge cake coated first in a layer of traditionally chocolate icing, then in desiccated coconut. (source: Wikipedia)
Baking Friday is here again. Lamington is one of my family’s favourites, and it’s been quite awhile since the last time I made these babies. As I expected, once my kids found out what I was doing, they came and circling close to me like vultures to dead animals. While they were watching me dipped the cake in chocolate and rolled it in coconut, they begged. Incessantly. I had to ‘let go’ some of the smaller (not perfectly square) ones for them to eat, just to stop the nagging.
I couldn’t blame them, really, because nothing beats freshly baked Lamingtons.
