Lamington balls - Recipes from Cooking School
« on: December 14, 2015, 06:31:59 am »
I'm presuming these are the same ones as in the book as the recipe was a free one in an email from Alyce Alexandra.

One of the ingredients called for Coconut Paste.  Couldn't source that locally and on-line it would have been too much to send for with postage, so I used Google to see if I could find a recipe to make my own.  I found this one and used it to make the paste in the TM.  So easy and I now have quite a few cubes in my freezer for other things.  I weighed out 20g and found that filled my ice cube tray slots perfectly so have frozen in tbs amounts.

The little balls themselves do taste like lamingtons.  I got 20 out of my mix.  Lovely.  :D

That's interesting Julie especially the part that says you can replace garlic and onion with this paste.  My DD has a visitor occasionally who can't eat these ingredients so I think I should send this information to her to pass onto her friend.

The balls look great.

Another delicious nibble to have around at Christmas.

I have a friend that can't have garlic and onion. I was thinking the same as you judy. Balls are great Julie.
