In honour of ANZAC Day, an important national occasion for Australians as we recognise our service men and women, Sarah made up a batch of Lamingtons. We always associate Lamingtons with ANZAC Day as we used to accompany my Grandad to the ANZAC Service at the local RSL, and there was always Lamingtons served at the afternoon tea.
A lamington is a square of sponge cake that has been covered in chocolate icing and then rolled in coconut – an Aussie favourite!
|Served on my Nan’s Tea Set|
- 1 store-bought sponge cake or 1 basic sponge cake
- 3 cups (480g) icing (confectioner’s) sugar

Sarah made up her own sponge cake – it was so light and delicious.
I am proud to have had two amazing grandfathers who fought for Australian in WW1 and WW2.
