Krishna's Lamington Muffins
« on: February 27, 2011, 03:27:01 am »
This is not my recipe, I got it from a Thermomix Australia poster on Facebook.  It's just too good not to share.  I give them 5/5 with the jam in the middle (I injeced mine using a 10ml syringe).

Here's Krishna's recipe-I made them to the recipe except I only had 3 eggs, but it didn't seem to matter.

Lamington Muffins

275g SR flour
300g 200 g caster sugar
100g coconut
1 teaspoons baking powder
250 g melted butter
4 eggs
185 mls milk

Blitz Flour, sugar, coconut & baking powder until mixed

Add butter, eggs, milk and whizz till smooth

Spoon into muffin trays in patty pans (makes approx 18)

175 degrees for 15 to 17 mins or until golden

Set aside for 5 minutes


Choc Glaze

100g icing sugar
2 tlbs dark cocoa
2 tlbs milk
2 tlbs how water
2 tlbs melted butter

Combine till smooth

Inject jam into muffins if you desire

Dip muffins into choc glaze and then dip into coconut (shredded coconut looks nice)

Allow to cool on wire rack

Rara 1 - Thanks Caroline for posting this recipe. I made these for mums morning tea and these went down a treat. Managed to keep a couple for the kids and they absolutely loved them. I used an ice-cream scoop and made 24.

Caroline J - I made these again but reduced the sugar to 200 g and they were still lovely .

dede - The kids had one each tonight and loved them. They are great to make as they are not half as messy as the traditional way. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

CP - reduced the sugar down to 200g as per CJ suggestion and they are very nice with the coconut in the cake. Made a slit and put about 1/2 tsp jam in (enough to close the slit down neatly). My DD made the icing and it turned out really runny - she swears she stuck to the recipe - but I found it too thin as it would just run off and you could see the cake. Anyone else experience this or do you think DD may have put more liquid in than she cares to admit?

VHJ - I found it was a runny consistency but assumed it was supposed to be like that (like for lamingtons ) so I dipped them in coconut which stuck beautifully. They disappeared of the rack almost as fast as I put them there. I have made a note on my recipe to double the quantity of glaze if I'm going to coat the whole little cake in coconut rather than just the top of the muffin.

CP - it was almost watery, so I think I will halve the water/milk and just add gradually until I get the consistency I want. But the testiment to how nice they were is there is only 3 left.

maddy - These were really lovely....I would call them cupcakes instead of muffins though. I loved the cake texture, very sponge like.  I used shredded coconut and turbo'd couple of times with the flour. The apple corer worked a treat to insert jam centres. I did double the icing sugar, and added extra Tbspn Cocoa. I think next time I would prefer real chocolate ganache for the icing.
This made 28 regular sized cupcakes.....so you may possibly want to halve quantities. These really are such lovely, light & fluffy cupcakes. I'm surprised how long they keep for too.

KerrynN - We used 200g sugar and followed everything else as is. Really delicious and light and they rose really well for dipping. This will be our cupcake recipe for the future! We did make 18 muffin sized ones rather than cupcake sized though. Next we want to try as two square cakes to make traditional lamingtons. For the topping, we had some of the hazelnut choc spread left over from birthday celebration number one, so I warmed it up and added some extra milk and used this for half of them, with desiccated coconut. The other half I used left over strawberry frosting (have family members who don't like chocolate) from celebration number two. As per Maddy's suggestion I used an apple corer to get a hole in to add the jam, and this worked well for the most part. One "hole" fell on the floor and one fell out into the icing mixture when dipping the cake but we recovered from both these little mishaps. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Aussie Brenda - they are yummy, already eaten 4 .  Made Maddy's ganache very nice.

JD - lovely, such a light cake recipe and anything maddy praises has to be good.  I also made maddy's ganache - 1/2 quantity covered 16 full sized muffins for me as I don't like it too thick.

These sound rather nice CarolineJ.

How do they go with no cut edges caroline?

I know when I make Lamingtons, the uncut sides don't soak in like the cut ones. Or am I being pedantic? :D

It soaked in marvellously.  I will have to load the patty pans more next time so I can just dip them in the chocolate- mine weren't high enough so I had to spoon the chocolate on top.  It soaked in before I could smear it around!  Tasted AMAZING though.  Make them ;)

Mmmm. Will make these for bowls afternoon tea next weekend. Thank you for posting it here!
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.
