Stages of cooking
Prior to cooking the dessert, pre-heat the oven to 180 C (350 F). Cover the baking pan with baking paper. Take a bowl and crack the eggs into it. Whisk them for about 10 minutes using a mixer. You should eventually get a creamy and dense mass.
Sift all the flour and add it to the whisked eggs. The batter should be smooth and creamy.
Pour or spoon the batter into a baking pan. Spread it well across the pan and carefully even the surface.
Bake in the pre-heated oven for about 35-40 minutes.
Let the dessert cool down a bit.
Meanwhile, cook the icing (the frosting). To do that, mix the required ingredients in a heatproof icing bowl over the water bath until the mixture becomes smooth. It should also be dense.
As soon as the cake cools down, cut it into 16 even pieces. Dip each piece in the icing on all sides. Allow the excess icing to drain off over the icing bowl.
Now, carefully roll each lamington in the shredded coconut on all sides.
Set your lamingtons aside for about 10-60 minutes depending upon their humidity.
That’s it! Your fantastic dessert is now ready! Enjoy!
