    Submitted by AJfromSA on 26. January 2017 - 16:57.

    great recipe, the cake mixture is great for dipping in the chocolate, it doesn't crumble away. Good amount of soakage with the chocolate. A real hit and surprisingly easy to make. I actually made a lot less sauce (scaled down to 200g of sugar) and it was just right.

    Cake was great and easy to make. Cooking temp and time was spot on. It made heaps of icing for dunking/coating, threw a lot out, prob wouldn't make this much if made again.

    Lovely recipe, thank you.

    Submitted by Mum Loves Food on 25. January 2016 - 23:33.

    These went down very well!

    The cake is quite sweet, and because of previous comments saying the icing was too thick, I used only about 3/4 of icing sugar mixture. They turned out great!

    Submitted by Eureka6 on 11. November 2015 - 03:23.

    I made these recently & although they were delicious, the chocolate sauce was sickly. I milled raw sugar to get the icing sugar, which I assume is fine to do? Even my husband who has a very sweet tooth said they were too sweet & sickly! After reading all the other comments I'm beginning to think I did something wrong, as no one else has mentioned this...

    Submitted by van der Ploeg on 23. August 2015 - 15:10.

    Great recipe but I would have preferred a thinner icing. A little tricky to work with, the end resulting in a messy looking lamington. Sponge was fine.  tmrc_emoticons.)

  • Such a delicious treat! I

    Submitted by Jazwa on 11. July 2015 - 08:59.

    Such a delicious treat! I made these with my mother in law who was visiting from Holland, she liked them a lot and will be making them back at home with my niece, who I sent the book Possum Magic! The sponge was amazing, it only took 10 minutes, but I used a lamington tray so I guess it wasn't as deep. And the icing was much thicker than the one my mum made when we were kids. 

    Don't forget to clean the icing bowl with a cupful of milk for 5 mins/80c/speed 3 and you get a delicious hot chocolate. Needless to say, there was no icing left over!!!

  • Very easy to follow!

    Submitted by kellogan on 22. February 2015 - 21:34.

    Very easy to follow!  Lamingtons are delicious.  I bake them in paper patty pans inside a muffin pan. I use a heaped dessert spoonful of batter in each patty pan.  Bake in oven for 10mins.  Once cooled remove the paper patty pan.  This eliminates the need to freeze and cut as they are already in small portions.  Usually get 15 out of each batch of sponge.

    I also make make a double batch of the sponge as the icing mixture makes enough the 2 batches.

    Submitted by Mimzeebee on 25. July 2014 - 14:09.

    I made these to take to work for morning tea on National Lamington Day (21st July). They were so popular and yummy I made them again for the next day. The second time I made them I cut pieces of cake smaller (half the size) and used a fork for dunking into the icing. The second batch were much better!

    Submitted by Tawmii on 16. March 2014 - 08:13.

    My sponge wasn't light and fluffy. I followed the recipe exactly so am thinking my oven might be the issue? Will try again at 170 rather than 190 and maybe a little less time. I used fan force.

    I am brand new to this. Should we sift flour into the TM?
