White chocolate lamingtons

    Bake cake about 35 minutes. Turn cake onto a baking-paper-covered wire rack to cool; refrigerate until required.

    To make icing; sift icing sugar into a medium heatproof bowl; stir in milk. Place over a medium saucepan of simmering water; stir until icing is of a coating consistency.

    Cut cold cake into 35 squares; dip each square in icing, drain off excess. Toss squares in combined coconut and grated chocolate; place on a wire rack to set.

Notes

Lamingtons can be made one day ahead of serving. Keep them in an airtight container in the fridge. The un-cut cake can be frozen for up to three months.
