Easy Lamington Recipe for the kids

If you are looking for a fun Australia Day activity with the kids then you can't go past making lamingtons!

Easy Lamington Recipe for the kids

  • 1 store-bought square cornered sponge cake

  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder

  • 2 cups icing sugar

  • boiling water

  • 50g butter, melted

  • dessicated coconut, to coat

Cut a store bought square cornered sponge cake into 6-7cm squares.
Sift together the icing sugar and cocoa. Mix with the boiling water and melted butter.

Using 2 forks to hold the sponge squares, dip in the chocolate icing and roll in desiccated coconut. Allow to set on a wire rack.

Makes approx 10 lamingtons.

You can make your own sponge cake and decorate in the same way. Store bought sponge cakes are quick easy and tend to have a consistent texture making them easy to cut and decorate!
