We decided to bake some yummy lamingtons to have after our homemade chippies. They were just beautiful enjoyed under the patio with a nice cup of tea. I thought i'd share the recipe with you so you too could enjoy them.
First your will need to make a simple cake recipe. I used this buttercake one:
125g Butter, Softened
1 Teas Vanilla Extract
3/4 Cup Caster Sugar
1 1/2 Cups Self-raising flour
1/2 Cup Milk
2 Cups Icing Sugar Mix
1/3 Cup Cocoa Powder
1/4 Cup Milk
1/2 Cup Boiling Water
2 Cups Coconut
Preheat oven to moderate. Grease and line pan. (I used a rectangle tray with sides of about 2cms.
Beat butter, extract and sugar in small bowl with electric mixer until light and fluffy.
Beat in eggs one at a time, until combined.
Stir in sifted flour and milk slowly to combine.
Pour into prepared tray and bake in moderate oven until cake is cooked.
Once cooked turn onto a wired rack to cool.
Once cooled trimmed the edges of the cake and cut into 15 pieces.
Spread the coconut over a plate.
To make icing sift icing sugar and cocoa into a bowl. Add the milk and water and stir until smooth. Using a fork dip the cake pieces in the icing and then roll in the coconut to coat. Set on a wired rack with a tray underneath and leave to set of approx 2 hours.
