- Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Butter two 9-by-13-inch baking pans; line bottoms with parchment; butter parchment. Dust with flour; tap out excess; set pans aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add vanilla and eggs, one at a time; beat until incorporated.
- Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt; add to egg mixture in three additions, alternating with the milk and beginning and ending with the flour mixture.
- Divide batter between prepared pans. Place in oven; bake until a cake tester inserted into middles comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Cool slightly on wire racks; remove from pans. Turn out cakes onto racks; cool completely.
- Spread one of the cooled cakes with the jam; place other cake on top. Using a serrated knife, trim edges of sandwiched cakes; cut into 24 two-inch squares.
- Place the coconut in a medium bowl; set aside. Place the bowl of chocolate icing over a saucepan filled with 2 inches of gently simmering water. Place a jam-filled cake squarein the bowl of chocolate icing; using forks to turn the square, coat all sides.
- Allow excess icing to drip off; transfer square to bowl of coconut (left bottom). Using clean forks to turn square, coat it with coconut. Transfer coated square to wire rack to stand until coating has set, about 15 minutes. Continue until all squares have been coated.
Lamingtons are little sponge cakes coated in chocolate and grated coconut. A traditional Australian treat that appeals to most. Any firm type of plain cake can be used: butter cake, pound cake, Madeira cake or genoise sponge. Note: desiccated coconut is a slightly dried shredded coconut--not sweetened.

- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease and flour an 8x12-inch pan.
- Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
- Beat 1/2 cup butter and 3/4 cup sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy. The mixture should be noticeably lighter in color. Add the room-temperature eggs one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into the butter mixture before adding the next. Beat in the vanilla with the last egg. Pour in the flour mixture alternately with the milk, mixing until just incorporated.
- Pour batter into the prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean, 30 to 40 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely. Wrap with plastic wrap and store overnight at room temperature to give the cake a chance to firm up before slicing.
- To make the icing: In a large bowl, combine confectioners' sugar and cocoa. Add the melted butter and warm milk and mix well to create a fluid, but not too runny, icing.
- Cut the cake into 24 squares. Place parchment paper or waxed paper on a work surface, and set a wire rack on the paper. Pour the shredded coconut into a shallow bowl. Using a fork, dip each square into the icing, coating all sides, then roll it in the coconut. Place onto rack to dry. Continue until all lamingtons are coated.

Recipe video above. There is no cake more Australian than the Lamington! The sponge in this recipe is buttery and moist, generously coated in chocolate and coconut. Sandwiching with jam and cream is optional - takes it over the top, but it's great without. KEY TIP: Freeze the sponge before coating - read Note 2.

- Preheat oven to 180C/350F (or fan forced 160C/320F).
- Sift flour and baking powder together.
- Grease a 20 cm x 30 cm / 8" x 12" cake pan. Line with baking paper (parchment paper), leaving an overhang on all sides (to make it easy to remove).
- Beat butter, sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer on medium high speed until light and fluffy - about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.
- Add eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition so the batter is smooth, not curdled.
- Add half the flour and gently fold to combine, then stir in half the milk. Repeat with remaining flour and milk.
- Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 25 minutes until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
- Stand for 5 minutes then use the overhang baking paper to lift the cake out onto a wire rack and cool completely.
- Cut cake into 15 squares (5 x 3), or 18 rectangles. Freeze for 1 to 1.5 hours. (Note 2)
- Combine the Icing ingredients in a heat proof bowl and mix until smooth. Should be a syrup consistency, but not watery. (Note 2)
- Place coconut in a shallow bowl or pan with a largish surface area (Note 3).
- Place a piece of cake in the icing and roll to coat using 2 forks. Transfer it into the coconut and quickly roll to coat all over in coconut. Transfer to tray.
- Repeat with remaining sponges.
- Stand for 1 to 2 hours, or until set. Then serve with tea and coffee!
- Beat cream and sugar until firm peaks form.
- Cut coated Lamington in half horizontally. Spread with jam then pipe or dollop on cream. Top with lid, keep refrigerated.

- Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Butter and line a 20 x 30cm rectangle tin.
- Beat the butter and sugar in a free-standing mixer until pale and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time and beat well. Beat through the flour, milk and salt until fully combined, then spoon into the tin. Bake in the oven for 25 mins or until golden and firm to the touch. Set aside to cool completely.
- Slice the sponge horizontally to create two halves. Trim the edges to make perfect corners. Cut the sponge into 18 squares. Lightly whip the cream with the icing sugar until it reaches soft peaks. Spread a little of the jam on half of the sponge squares then pipe or spread over a little of the cream. Sandwich each one with a second square of sponge then set aside in the fridge to chill.
- To make the icing, whisk together the melted butter and milk in a bowl. Sieve the cocoa powder and icing sugar together in a seperate bowl. Gradually add the cocoa and sugar to the butter and milk mixture, whisking continuously to ensure there are no lumps. If it gets lumpy, whizz with a hand blender until smooth.
- Divide the coconut between three shallow bowls (this keeps it from getting coated in too much chocolate whilst you're dipping).
- Dip each lamington in the icing until completely covered. Roll in the coconut and set on a wire rack. Repeat with the remaining sponges. Chill for a minimum of 1 hr.

The secret to a great Lamington is to let the cake sit overnight. This Australian cake is cut into cubes, covered in chocolate, and coated with coconut.

- To make the cake: At least one day before serving, center a rack in the oven and preheat it to 350°F. Butter a 9-inch square cake pan and dust with ﬂour, or use baker's spray. Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper. Have a sifter or strainer at hand.
- If your eggs are still cool to the touch, put them in a bowl of hot water for 5 minutes-warmed eggs beat more voluminously than cold eggs and you want volume.
- Whisk the ﬂour, baking powder and salt together. Put the melted butter in a small bowl.
- Working in the bowl of a stand mixer ﬁtted with a whisk attachment, or in a large bowl with a hand mixer, beat the sugar and eggs together on medium-high speed until they triple in volume, about 4 minutes; when you lift the whisk, the batter should form a ribbon as it falls into the bowl. If you're using a stand mixer, remove the bowl. Grab a big ﬂexible spatula, sift or strain one third of the ﬂour mixture over the eggs and sugar and gently fold it in. Repeat twice more, until all of the ﬂour is in. No matter how gentle you are, the batter will deﬂate-it's the nature of the cake.
- Stir two or three spoonfuls of the batter into the melted butter and then gradually fold the butter mixture into the batter in the bowl. As you fold, check the bottom of the bowl-the butter has a tendency to lurk there: Find it and fold it in. Scrape the batter into the pan and jiggle the pan to level it.
- Bake for 26 to 29 minutes, or until the cake is golden, is starting to come away from the sides of the pan and springs back when gently prodded; a tester inserted into the center of the cake will come out clean. Transfer the pan to a rack and wait for 5 minutes, then run a table knife around the edges of the pan to loosen the cake. Unmold the cake onto the rack, carefully peel away the paper and let cool to room temperature. Lightly cover the cake-you can put a kitchen towel over it-and leave it out overnight. (The cake can be wrapped in plastic and kept at room temperature for up to 2 days.)
- To cut the cake and get ready to finish it: Unwrap the cake if necessary and place it right side up on a cutting board. The top will have crowned in baking, so use a long serrated knife and a gentle sawing motion to level the cake. Cut the cake into 16 squares, each about 2¼ inches on a side. Place the cubes on a rack set over a piece of parchment or a baking sheet-the sauce will drip-and prepare your dipping and coating station: Put some of the coconut in a shallow bowl-work with a little at a time, so that if you get chocolate sauce in it (almost inevitable), you've got backup. Have four table forks at hand-two for dipping and two for turning the chocolate-coated cake cubes in the coconut.
- To make the sauce: Bring the butter and water to a boil-I do this in the microwave. Sift or strain the confectioners' sugar and cocoa together into a bowl-a deep narrow one is best. Pour the boiling water-butter mixture into the bowl and stir with a ﬂexible spatula to blend.
- To dip and coat the cake: One by one, drop the cubes of cake into the sauce, turning each one around with two forks until it's coated on all sides. Lift up the cube, letting any excess sauce drip back into the bowl, and return the cube to the rack. After you've dipped two or three cubes, one by one, coat each of the dipped cubes with coconut, using two clean forks to turn the cubes around in the coconut. Continue working in batches until all of the cubes are dipped and coated. If the sauce thickens as you work, thin it with drops of very hot tap or boiling water.
- Leave the Lamingtons on the rack to set for an hour or so before serving.
- You can wrap the Lamingtons well and keep them at room temperature for 3 days or so. Yes, they'll be drier, but they'll still be so good.
