I was in the mood for making a nice treat for the family today and here is the result: Lamingtons. Let me tell you this, do not get fooled by the simple look of Australias traditional cake. They can also be found in a pink version in New Zealand. They are SO good!. Perfect together with a nice cup of coffee, tea or a cold glass of milk Mmmmm.

I made my Lamingtons with a nice butter cake (baked and cooled the day before) and the traditional chocolate icing.

Toss them in desiccated coconut to cover.

Let the icing set. You can either serve Lamingtons plain or sandwich them with whipped cream and raspberry jam. Enjoy!

    At the bakery I work at, we make something silimar to this. We make a variety of flavored cake, cube them and toss them in powder sugar. We sell them with about 50 pieces in each container with whipped cream for dipping and we call it “Cake Nachos”!! They are out top seller!! 🙂

    Hi, just to let you know the pink lamingtons made with the jelly (jello) coating are also very popular in Australia too!

    P.S. Love the new site – yummy!

    I tried Lamingtons yesterday evening… I’ve covered the cake cubes with your chocolate ganache recipe (which is great)and they were irresistible!
