Aussie food

This week I posted on Facebook that Katie and I were making lamingtons on our Wednesday cooking day. I forgot that this is very much an Australian delicacy - sponge cake covered in chocolate and rolled in coconut - very yummy! So now all my overseas friends have a new piece of trivia to share this weekend! ... "By the way, did you know...."



We had a great production line going and I was pleasantly surprised with how they turned out.

Yum! I can't wait to try the box we bought - I love lamingtons!! When I was little my Aunty used to make the pink ones too - I think you dip them in unset jelly instead of the chocolate mmmmmm. Have a great long weekend!
