Easy - Med - Hard


There are few things we love more than lamingtons! If you've always wanted to make your own, try this easy recipe. You'll be everyone's favourite at afternoon tea - if you're willing to share!




*If you’re stuck for time or cooking with kids, you might like to opt for a store-bought sponge and head straight to icing!

¾ cup self-raising flour, sifted

½ tsp baking powder

½ cup caster sugar

4 eggs

75g butter, softened


3 ½ cups icing sugar

¼ cup cocoa powder

25g butter, softened

1 cup boiling water

2 cups desiccated coconut, for coating 




  • Using an electric mixer, beat the eggs and sugar on a high speed until pale, thick and tripled in volume.
  • Sift the baking powder and half of the flour over the egg mixture and gently fold to combine. Repeat with the remaining flour.
  • Add the butter and gently fold to combine.
  • Pour the mixture into a rectangular, greased baking tin.
  • Bake for 15 minutes at 180°C and test with a skewer before taking it out.
  • Cool on a wire rack and then cut into squares.

*Tip: Icing is even easier if you have time to freeze squares before icing and allow them to thaw out again before serving   


  • Mix the icing sugar, cocoa powder, butter and water in a large bowl.
  • Put your desiccated coconut in a separate bowl.
  • Using two forks, dip the squares in the icing mixture, followed by the desiccated coconut.
  • Place on a tray lined with baking paper and allow to set.
