Delicious Lamingtons

Lamingtons are little sponge cakes coated in chocolate and grated coconut. A traditional Australian treat that appeals to most.

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups Castor sugar
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 3 cups sifted flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups dessicated coconut (for the coating)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 cups icing sugar
  • ⅓ cup cocoa powder (good quality)
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • ½ cup hot milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C
  2. Whisk the sugar and eggs in a mixer until light and fluffy (I used my KitchenAid on level 5 for 3-4 minutes)
  3. Add the oil and vanilla essence and mix again.
  4. Add the flour and baking powder to the mixture alternatively with the milk.
  5. Pour the mixture into a rectangular, greased baking tin for 25-30 minutes at 180°
  6. Allow to cool and then cut off any crusts. Now, cut the sponge into small squares, about 4cm x 4cm (the traditional size for a lamington).
  7. Make the icing/coating and roll each square in the chocolate coating until all sides are covered. Be generous here and coat the sponges well!
  8. Now roll each lamington in coconut. Enjoy!
