Although I lived in Australia for many years, I never ate a lamington on Australian soil. It wasn’t until I was back in the UK that I was offered one for the first time. These Oz treats are tasty squares of sponge covered in chocolate icing and coated in coconut. Recently, evidence has come to light that lamingtons originated in New Zealand, but in many foodie circles the jury is still out on that one! They are fun to make and even more fun to eat.
