Lamington Recipes are on our top list. We hear you, right mums, today is one of your favourite occasions to bake. Well, I guess Lamington has a reputation to bring out patriotism and of course your baking prowess to show the world what a great nation we have.

But to settle your excitement, first, let’s have a quick tour down the memory lane of why it’s called Lamington.

What’s a Lamington anyway?

It’s that squared or rectangular shaped sponge cake coated with chocolate and sprinkled with coconut. The Lamington is a yummy cakey treat that Australia is known for.

Most people say that it was named after Lord Lamington, who served as Governor of Queensland from 1896 to 1901 or his wife Lady Lamington. In one instance, Lamington’s chef  French-born Armand Galland, was called on short notice to prepare a feast for the guests during the busy period in 1901.

The Melbourne newspaper The Age said , Galland used some left-over French vanilla sponge cake, drenched it in chocolate and rolled in coconut. Coconut then was unpopular in European cuisine but Galland got this idea from his wife from Tahiti where coconut was a common ingredient. Lady Lamington’s guests were so delighted with its unique taste that most of them asked for the recipe. Now, we are fortunate to behold and taste this 1900 Lamington recipe until today.

So to celebrate all things Aussie, we are sharing 17 Amazing Lamington Recipes!
