Lamingtons

Comment on this recipe

My husband and I spent three weeks in Australia in the summer of 1999. Lamingtons are a traditional cake served all over - a delightful treat!

Ingredients

CAKE:
3 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup self-rising flour
1/3 cup butter
3 tablespoons hot milk
Chocolate Icing:
1 pound (16 ounces) powdered sugar
2 ounces cocoa
1/3 cup butter
1/2 cup warmed milk
3 cups desiccated coconut, finely ground

Instructions

For the cake, preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat eggs until thick. Gradually add all the sugar and beat until dissolved. Fold in flour. Dissolve butter in hot milk and mix in. Spoon into a 7x11-inch pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Chill and cut into 16 pieces. Let sit out overnight covered with a cloth. For the icing, sift powdered sugar and cocoa. Melt butter in milk and pour into icing mix, stir well. Stand bowl in hot water while coating cake. Place coconut in a plastic bag. With fork or tongs, dip one portion of the cake into chocolate icing, shake gently and carefully place in plastic bag. Shake bag to coat cake and let stand on a wire rack to cool.
