Our go-to recipe for Lamingtons, these delicious treats are perfect to serve on Australia Day or for a school bake sale.
Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease an 18 cm x 24 cm baking tin.1
Add all ingredients for the cake to a large bowl and beat until smooth.2
Pour the mixture into the prepared baking tin and bake for about 30-35 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.3
Leave the cake in the tin for about 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool, with the bottom of the cake facing up. This will help to flatten the top of the cake as it cools.4
Using a bread knife, cut the sponge into 6cm squares.5
Sift together the icing sugar and cocoa. Add boiling water and melted butter and mix until smooth.6
Using 2 forks to hold the sponge squares, dip in the chocolate then roll in desiccated coconut. Serve.7
