We would love to wish all of our Australian readers a very Happy Australia Day! Hope you have a relaxing day celebrating with family and friends.
To help celebrate Australia Day in true Aussie style, Sarah has baked us a delicious Lamington Cake. It consists of two layers of sponge cake, sandwiched together with vanilla buttercream, and then covered in a chocolate icing with dessicated coconut. A fun twist on the Aussie classic.
Make up a basic Sponge Cake and bake it in two square tins. You can find the recipe Sarah used over here at Donna Hay. Allow the cake to cool and then sandwich together with Vanilla Buttercream, and coat in chocolate icing.
- 2 cups (360g) icing (confectioner’s) sugar
- 2/3 cup (50g) cocoa powder
- 3 tablespoons (60ml) boiling water
- 50g butter, melted
- Shredded coconut, to coat
