Title: Lamingtons
Yield: 1 Servings


125 g Butter or margarine
3/4 c Caster sugar
2 Eggs
2 c SR flour
1/2 c Milk
1/2 ts Vanilla

3 tb Boiling water; (up to 4)
2 tb Cocoa
30 g Butter
2 c Icing sugar; sifted
2 c Desiccated coconut

Haven't heard of the song "Here we go round the Lamington Plate". Is it in
tune to "Here we go round the mulberry bush"? My daughter has read the book
"Possum Magic" and she loves it too. She's 10 and has liked that for years

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. beat in eggs one at a time,
beating well between each addition. Fold in sifted flour alternately with
combined milk and vanilla. Pour mixture into a greased 18 x 28 cm lamington
tin. Bake at 180 centigrade (this equals 350 fahrenheit) for 30 to 40
minutes. Turn onto a cake rack to cool.

Make the cake a day or two before cutting and icing the lamingtons, as
fresh cake will usually crumble (the recipe says, not me!) Cut the cake
into 5cm (2") squares.

ICING: Pour boiling water over butter, add cocoa and mix well. Beat in
icing sugar until mixture is smooth. Using a long pronged fork, dip each
piece of cake into chocolate icing and then roll in coconut. Leave to set
on a cake rack.
