Recipe Review - Lamingtons new EDC
« on: January 26, 2014, 09:28:15 am »
This is a great recipe. Sponge cake was easy to make and when cooked was nice and flat. I didn't trim the cake, seems wasteful, just cut into 12 pieces with a sharp knife when cool. Didn't bother freezing it and it didn't crumble much either. The icing makes a lot. I poured it into my 2 cup Pyrex jug and dunked the cakes into it with my fingers (I think it's tradition to get gooey and messy when making lamingtons). There was at least a cup of icing leftover. Looking for ideas on what to do with it? Love the taste of these lamingtons. Very easy and I will be making them again 5/5.

They look so good Kimmy.  I get myself in such a mess making lamingtons so consequently don't make them very often.  I think you need excess icing to be able to dunk the cake easily.  I wonder if you could somehow incorporate the leftovers into a chocolate custard.

They look lovely Kimmy. I cheat a bit and make cupcakes for lamingtons. No cutting involved that way. I use 2 forks to dunk it in the chocolate icing and 2 different forks to coat in coconut.

I made my normal cup cake recipe but I used Isi's icing for lamingtons. We loved it and I will use it from now on.
