Nothing says Australia like Lamingtons. They’re a firm favourite with just about every Aussie, so here is our own recipe on how to make these yummy chocolatey spongy icons!

Lamingtons | Stay at Home


  1. Make a double batch of the Sand Cake recipe in a rectangular tin (or purchase a pre-made slab from your local supermarket).

  2. When the Sand Cake comes out of the oven and has cooled, place in fridge for half and hour to firm up.

  3. Using a very sharp knife, cut the cake into 5cm squares.

  4. To make the chocolate sauce, mix together the icing sugar and cocoa powder.

  5. Melt the butter in the microwave and pour into the cocoa mixture.

  6. Add the tablespoon of boiling water and whisk until smooth and cooled.

  7. Place in a round bottomed container.

  8. Place a square of cake on a fork and dip in the chocolate mixture and then roll in the desiccated coconut.

  9. Place the coated squares on a wire rack to dry.

Recipe Hints and Tips:

  • Lamingtons are suitable for freezing for up to two months.
  • Seal them well in an airtight container or wrap in plastic wrap.
  • Serve lamingtons on their own with whipped cream, or slice in half and add jam and cream for a richer more decadent morning tea idea.
