Thermomix Lamingtons

Thermomix Lamingtons

Do you recognise these lovely and very appetising spongy treats? They are traditional Australian 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. As I found it, I organised everything to prepare them, I was very curious to taste them! The recipe comes from the Australian Recipe Community where it was posted by Thermomix Australia.

Lamingtons are small sponge cakes coated in a layer of chocolate icing and then desiccated coconut. They can also be served as two halves with a layer of cream and/or strawberry or raspberry jam. In Australia they are sold in cafes, bakeries, supermarkets and bars.

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

My children wanted me to prepare Lamingtons for a party at their school and everyone over there (teachers included) told me they were simply delicious!
