Several times ago I found a cake named Lamington, a dessert of Australian origin. I think it’s really easy to make. It’s simply a sponge cake coated with chocolate icing and desiccated coconut. So finally I tried to make it yesterday, and this is my result. 😛 Actually I feel the icing is too sweet for me (maybe because I’m more familiar with Japanese cake recipes which are never too sweet). No wonder, it contains much sugar. I think it’s better to replace some of the sugar with melted chocolate, but I don’t know if it still could be called as Lamington or not, haha.. By the way yesterday I used dark cocoa powder instead of cocoa powder. It’s my first time using dark cocoa powder, and it came really dark, almost black, haha.
You can find the recipe here.
