Vanilla flavored sponge cake cut into cubes, dipped in a rich chocolate sauce and rolled in desiccated coconut. Keep the cake cubes soaked in chocolate sauce a little longer to make it moist on the inside.

Ingredients of Lamingtons

  • For The Sponge Cake:
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup maida
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup butter + 1 tsp, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • For The Chocolate Sauce:
  • 4-5 Tbsp milk
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 25-30 chocolate cubes (I bought bars of readily available milk chocolate)
  • To Coat:
  • Coconut powder or you can grate fresh coconut

How to Make Lamingtons

  • 1.Pre heat the oven at 200 degrees. Grease the cake mould with 1 tsp butter. Sprinkle a little flour on the tin base to avoid the cake from sticking on the sides.
  • 2.Sift the flour and baking powder together and keep aside.
  • 3.In a bowl break 3 eggs and keep beating till the eggs are frothy. Its crucial to whip the eggs nicely for the cake's sponginess. (I used an electric mixer.)
  • 4.Add the powdered sugar and mix.
  • 5.Add 1/2 cup softened butter and vanilla essence. Mix.
  • 6.Add the sifted flour and baking powder. Mix.
  • 7.Pour the batter into the greased tin and bake at 180 degrees until done.
  • 8.You can check by inserting a toothpick into the cake, if its done or not. If the toothpick comes out dry, it means the cake is done.
  • 9.When baked, get the cake out of the tin carefully. Let it cool for 10-15 minutes and cut the cake into symmetrical cubes.
  • 10.Dip in the chocolate sauce. Roll in grated coconut. Serve.
  • For The Chocolate Sauce:
  • 1.Melt the chocolate with the butter in the microwave (20-30 seconds on Medium) or a double boiler (bottom pan with water; chocolate and butter on the upper pan).
  • 2.Once melted, add milk to make the sauce. Mix them together with a spoon.
