Chocolate Lamingtons – the best!
I love Lamingtons…..they are so addictive!
This recipe comes from my childhood….I got it from our neighbour, my second mom at that time, Aunty Rookeya Samrod. This is the BEST recipe ever!
Choc Dipping Syrup:
1 & 1/2 cups boiling water
4 tblsp butter
3 tsp vanilla essence
1/4 cup Cocoa
3 cups icing sugar
Bring the above to a boil until syrup is slightly thick. To check if its ready, dip the back of a tablespoon in the syrup, run your finger down the center and if the line remains….its ready! Yayyyy! Now leave aside to cool.
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celcius
1/2 lb butter (250g)
2 cups castor sugar
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
2 tsp Cream of Tartar dissolved into 1 cup cold milk
3 cups flour
Cream butter and sugar. Beat in one egg at a time.
Sift flour with bicarb.
Alternate flour and milk into the batter. Combine well.
Pour into a greased and lined rectangular baking dish 30cm X 20 cm or into mini cupcake trays.
Bake til done.
Leave to cool on a wire rack and cut into squares.
Dip each square into chocolate dipping sauce and roll in plain dessicated coconut.
Best eaten the next day….it will soak in well. Finger-licking delicious-ness!
