Thermomix Lamingtons

Do you recognise these lovely and very appetising spongy treats? They are traditional Australian and New Zealand Lamingtons to make with your Thermomix! Have you ever tried them?

When I look at my Thermomix I always think of making new things and this Lamingtons recipe is perfect

Lamingtons are small sponge cakes cut into cubes coated in a layer of chocolate icing and then desiccated coconut. They can also be served as two halves with a layer of custard and/or strawberry jam or raspberry jam.

In Australia and New Zealand you can find them everywhere: they are sold in cafes, bakeries, supermarkets and bars. In Italy they are not found in stores and, therefore, I am even more happy to prepare them myself with the legendary Thermomix!

The method is really easy with Thermomix and, believe me, you will really please everyone with these delicacies! Children in particular! :-)

If you like the combination of coconut and chocolate, then you should definitely prepare the coconut and Nutella cake. Here are some ideas for making delicious coconut recipes: Haupia, Coconut Gelato, Coconut Milk..
