Happy New Year everyone! I’m guessing most of you are back at work after the festive season and wishing you were still on holiday. So here is a little distraction for you, or possibly some inspiration for your next holiday.
In preparation for Australia Day, I made an Aussie icon—the humble lamington. If you have never encountered a lamington before they consist of sponge cake, dipped in chocolate, then rolled in coconut. Upon searching for a recipe, I discovered that there are various methods, which left me wondering which version to make. Should I use ganache or icing? Should I spread jam in the middle of the lamington? Should I use dessicated or shredded coconut? The consensus amongst my friends was that you should only use jam if you are adding cream, so to kept it simple I went with icing, no jam and toasted shredded coconut (I think toasting the coconut was the best decision I made!). I didn’t use one recipe in particular but if you would like to make your own lamingtons the links below may be of some use, I particularly like the idea of mini lamingtons that can be eaten in one bite!
Happy Australia Day!
