Ingredients

Quick & easy mini lamingtons
  • 450 gram plain madeira cake, trimmed, cut into 3cm cubes
  • 1/4 cup strawberry jam
  • 1/4 cup cream, lightly whipped
  • 4 cup icing sugar mixture
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 20 gram butter, melted
  • 2 cup shredded coconut

Method

Quick & easy mini lamingtons
  • 1
    Cut each cube in half, and spread one surface with jam and cream. Sandwich together.
  • 2
    Sift icing sugar and cocoa together into a large heatproof bowl. Stir in milk and butter.
  • 3
    Place icing over a saucepan of gently simmering water and heat gently, stirring, until icing sugar dissolves and mixture is smooth and runny (of coating consistency).
  • 4
    Using a fork, dip each cake piece into chocolate icing, draining off excess. Roll in coconut to coat. Place on a wire rack and leave to set. Store in an airtight container.

Notes

To prevent icing from becoming too thick, keep it over a bowl of warm water. Prepared sponge cake can be used instead of the Madeira cake. Alternatively, you can use your favourite buttercake recipe ­ it is best made the day before making the lamingtons.
