We could have celebrated Australia Day with Aussie tattoos, Aussie flag capes, VB stubbies and cricket on the beach… but we decided baking home made lamingtons would be a much more… well us!
We cheated a little using store bought sponge cake but redeemed ourselves with our home made strawberry jam!
A special thank you to Donna Hay on Twitter for the awesome suggestion!
♥ 3 cups (480g) icing (confectioner’s) sugar
♥ ¾ cup (75g) cocoa powder
♥ ⅓ cup (80ml) boiling water
♥ 75g butter, melted
♥ dessicated coconut, to coat
Cut sponge cake into 6cm squares. Sift together the icing sugar and cocoa. Mix with the boiling water and melted butter. Using 2 forks to hold the sponge squares, dip in the chocolate icing and roll in desiccated coconut. Allow to set on a wire rack. Makes 9.
