Cooking Instructions:

  • Step 1: Cut the sponge cake into small squares or rectangles of your desired size. Ensure that they are evenly sized for consistent results.
  • Step 2: Melt the dark chocolate in a heatproof bowl over simmering water, stirring until smooth. Alternatively, you can melt it in the microwave using short bursts of heat, stirring in between.
  • Step 3: Place the desiccated coconut in a shallow dish or plate.
  • Step 4: Using a fork or tongs, dip each sponge cake square into the melted chocolate, ensuring all sides are coated. Allow any excess chocolate to drip off.
  • Step 5: Roll the chocolate-coated sponge cake square in the desiccated coconut, pressing gently to adhere the coconut to the chocolate.
  • Step 6: Place the coated lamington on a wire rack or baking sheet to set. Repeat with the remaining sponge cake squares.
  • Step 7: Once all the lamingtons have been coated and set, they are ready to be enjoyed. Serve with a cup of tea or coffee for a delightful treat.
