Print this pagePrint this page

As I lately have a little time, I was searching on the web the other day. In need of fresh, exciting ideas, inspirational recipes that I have never used before, to treat my loved ones with. Hunting for quite some time yet couldn't find lots of interesting things. Right before I wanted to give up on it, I came upon this delightful and easy treat simply by chance. It looked so fabulous on its snapshot, it called for instant actions.
It absolutely was simple enough to imagine the way it is made, how it tastes and how much boyfriend will enjoy it. Actually, it is rather simple to please the man when it comes to treats. Yes, I am a blessed one. Or possibly he is.Anyways, I got into the site: Ambitiouskitchen and followed the step by step instuctions which were combined with wonderful images of the method. It really makes life much easier. I can suppose it's a slight effort to shoot photos in the middle of baking in the kitchen because you will often have gross hands therefore i seriously appreciate the effort and time she put in to build this post .
With that in mind I am inspired presenting my personal formulas in the same way. Many thanks for the concept.
I was tweaking the initial recipe to make it for the taste of my family. I must mention that it was a great success. They loved the flavour, the structure and enjoyed getting a treat such as this during a busy week. They ultimately demanded more, a lot more. So the next occasion I am not going to make the same mistake. I'm going to twin the quantity .

3/4 Cup Caster Sugar
3 Tablespoons Cocoa
1 teaspoon Butter
Preheat oven to 180 Degrees Celsius, or 160 Fan Forced.
Line a 20x30cm baking tin with baking paper.
Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
Add one egg at a time and beat until full incorporated and mixture becomes thick and pale.
Sift the Flour and the Salt three times. Then using a spoon fold 1/4 of the dry ingredients into the wet mixture until just combined.
Add 1/3 of the milk, stir through, then fold in another 1/4 of the flour. Repeat until all flour and milk is combined- ending with the flour.
If mixture is too thick and does not drop easily from the spoon, put in a little more milk, this will ensure it spreads out evenly and bakes flat. Do not over mix otherwise it may become tough.
Spread evenly into prepared baking tin with a spatula, bake until firm and springy in the centre (30-35 minutes).
Once cooled, cut the edges off the outside of the sponge to neaten it up. This really is best finished with a serrated blade. then cut in to squares or rectangles whatever size you would like. If you are worried that it could crumble as you cut, refrigerate it for an hour before cutting. Mine made 12 large rectangles.
Prepare the icing.
Sift the Icing Sugar and Cocoa into a medium metal bowl.
In a tiny bowl place the Vanilla, Butter and Boiling Water and once the butter is dissolved, pour this over the Icing/Cocoa mixture, whisk together until Chocolate Icing is glossy and smooth.
You will likely need to set the metal bowl over a full bowl of hot water to keep it liquefied when coating the lamingtons, since it sets quickly.
Using two forks, gently coat each lamington in chocolate icing mixture after which place on a plate already coated with coconut. Evenly distribute the coconut over each lamington, turning over carefully with a fork and patting in coconut with your fingers. Don't use all your coconut simultaneously as it may get contaminated by chocolate icing and not look too pretty, so use just as much as you need at any given time.
Serve once set, refrigerating speeds this up. You are able to keep in the fridge for 2 days, or freeze them for later.
