How To Make Lamington

The world-famous Australian culinary icon Lamington consists of a sponge cake that is dipped in chocolate and sprinkled with finely desiccated coconut.

The cake is believed to have been created by accident when Lord Lamington’s maid accidentally dropped his favorite cake in melted chocolate.

The cake is also popular in Balkan and Eastern Europe – in Croatia, the same cake (without any fruit jam whatsoever) is called čupavci, and it’s a Christmas staple.

In Slovakia, the cake is called kokosové ježe, in Poland it’s known as kostka kokosowa, while the Hungarian name is kókuszkocka.
