How to Make Whole Wheat Lamingtons

  • For the sponge cake:
  • 1.Preheat the oven to 180 degrees, while you gear to whip up the batter for the sponge cake.
  • 2.Sieve the dry ingredients - flour, baking soda and baking powder together into a clean dry bowl.
  • 3.Add the powdered sugar and the eggs and whisk in till frothy.
  • 4.Now add the butter and the vanilla extract and whisk in again.
  • 5.Into this add the flour mixture and whip until thick and gooey.
  • 6.Immediately pour into a grease pan and bake it in a preheated oven for about 30 minutes. Cool completely before cutting them into squares.
  • 7.Place a wire rack over an aluminum foil and place the cubes of cake over the wire rack. Let them cool completely, before you pour the chocolate coating.
  • For the chocolate coating:
  • 1.Sieve the powdered sugar and cocoa together and keep aside in a bowl.
  • 2.Melt the butter in a pan and turn off the heat. Into this add the milk and whisk in.
  • 3.Now pour liquid mixture into the dried mix slowly, whisking in constantly to prevent the formation of lumps. The chocolate batter should have a smooth satiny feel to it.
  • 4.Now with the help of a toothpick, pierce each cube and dip it in the chocolate liquid, until it gets covered completely. This should be done very gently or you might break the soft cake cube.
  • 5.Place them over the wire rack, to drip the excess of the chocolate coating and also to dry completely.
  • 6.Once dry, roll them gently over desiccated coconut and serve.
