Lamingtons - May 2015 Daring Bakers Challenge


For the May challenge Marcellina from Marcellina in Cucina dared us to make Lamingtons. An Australian delicacy that is as tasty as it is elegant.

I really encourange you to try this sweet little thing.  A cube of vanilla sponge cake dipped in chocolate icing then coated with desiccated coconut - yummy.

If you are like me, you will go through 3 stages:
1. you will think that this is really easy to bake;
2. then you will discover that it actually is not as it is a little bit messy; and
3. then you will taste them and will realize that it was worthy.

For a longer time, I had wanted to try some recipe by Stephanie Jaworski from the Joy of Baking and as soon as I learnt she actually has a recipe for the lamingtons I knew I was going to use her recipe. Added value is that Mrs Jaworski has also made a video of hee method so if you will be confused how to bake these you can check it out.
