Australian Lamington Cake. Tender Dessert with the Coconut Shavings


Lamington is an amazing Australian cake. The legend says that the recipe was invented by a cook who didn’t know what to cook for his unexpected guests. All he had in the fridge was dry chocolate chocolate - very good recipes with chocolate learn more...sponge cake. He cut it into pieces and covered with the layer of the coconut shaving. Sir Lamington didn`t like it. Still, the cook saved this recipe and improved it over time.

  1. Take a heavy-duty pan with the thick bottom and walls. Break 8 eggs and mix them with the sugar in a bowl. Add hot water into the heavy-duty pan and put the bowl with whipped eggs on the top of it.
  2. Take the pan off the fire and continue whipping this mass on the slow speed. It will take 10-12 minutes.
  3. Sift the flour through the sieve slowly. Divide it into 3 portions. Add each portion to the bowl slowly and carefully.
  4. Pour melted butter and mix all the ingredients, using a silicone spatula.
  5. Pour the dough into a square-shaped baking tray, previously covering the bottom of the tray with the baking paper.
  6. Cook your dessert in the oven preheated to 392 F for 20-25 minutes. Once baked, take the tray with the sponge cake out of the oven. Put it on the grid and leave it to cool down.
  7. Now you may get down to cooking the topping/dip. Slowly preheat the cream. Pour it into a bowl with dark chocolate. When the chocolate melts, mix everything one more time, until the liquid becomes smooth.
  8. Cut the sponge cake into pieces and start dipping them into the chocolate mass. Once covered in chocolate, roll each slice in the coconut shaving.

Put all the slices on a cake plate and leave them for an hour. Now you may either serve this tender Australian dessert or, if you can resist the temptation, put it into a container and leave for 3-4 days. Bon Appetit!
