Method

Lamington
  • 1
    Preheat oven to moderate, 180°C. Lightly grease and line a 20cm square pan.
  • 2

    Spoon mixture into pan, smoothing top. Bake for 30-35 minutes until cooked when tested. Cool in pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Trim edges and cut into 9 squares.

    Using a fork, dip each cake piece into icing, draining off excess. Roll in hazelnuts to coat. Place on a wire rack and allow to set.
To serve

    Whip thickened cream to soft peaks. Split cakes and sandwich with cream.

Notes

  • You can use shredded coconut instead of hazelnut to coat, if preferred.
