Rainbow Lamingtons for 1st Blogoversary & 100th Post

Pin It


Today marks two milestones, my 1st Blogoversary & 100th post. Can't believe a year has passed! This blog was started exactly a year ago, just to keep record of all my tried & tested recipes. It has become my passion now and I really enjoy it. In this blogging journey, I have met so many kind blogging friends who who have always been encouraging me through their lovely comments. I enjoy reading every single one. Thank you all for being so supportive! Hope you will continue your support :)

To celebrate my blogoversary & my 100th post, I wanted to make something sweet & special. These lamingtons are my all-time favorite. The cake itself is quite soft & moist. After dipping in syrup, they would be more moist and melt in your mouth. And with the coconut, they tastes like a piece of heaven. So here goes the recipe:

Rainbow Lamingtons
************************

Makes : 24 squares

Ingredients:
  • 1 quantity prepared Butter Cake ( see recipe
  • 2 cups castor sugar
  • 2 tbsp. corn flour
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 20 gm. butter
  • Food colors ( green, pink, yellow )
  • Unsweetened shredded coconut or desiccated coconut, as required

Method :
  • Bake the cake; cool, wrap, and chill overnight. 
  • Use a large serrated knife to trim the crusts from the top and bottom of the cake. 
  • Cut the cake into 3 equal pieces width-wise and then in half lengthwise. 
  • Cut each portion into 4 squares.You'll get 24 squares.
  • Prepare the Icing.
  • Combine sugar, cornflour & milk in a medium saucepan.
  • Cook on low heat until sugar is dissolved.
  • Add butter and continue cooking until butter is melted & the Icing is smooth and runny.
  • Divide Icing mixture into 3 bowls. Tint each with food coloring to desired color (add one drop at a time).
  • Use a fork to dip each cake square in the icing mixture to coat. Shake off excess ( or hold the cake over the bowl of Icing. Spoon warm Icing over squares, covering completely ).
  • Transfer to the bowl of coconut; roll the cake in the coconut to evenly coat, pressing coconut onto sides.
  • Transfer to a wire rack to set.
Note :
  • These can be made the day before and stored in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
  • You can use your favorite cake recipe to make these.
