Delicious and Simple - Australian Lamington Cakes

Here is a WOW recipe for impressing your kids or Guests, in just about 5 minutes with some really easy cooking time and method. Simple Ingredients, available at all stores.

So, the Australian Lamington cake gets its name from being a speciality of Australia. Pound cakes coated with chocolate ganache and a good sprinkle of desiccated coconut.

Well, I just cut the method short by buying off the shelf pound cakes from the store. I bought tiny plain pound cakes that will serve off as a quick bite for desserts. Ofcourse, if you are enthusiastic enough, please try out baking a pound cake from scratch, which is quite easy as well.

So here goes my Ingredients list:

1.  A Loaf or pack of ready made store bought pound cake
2. 200 grams of dark unsweetened chocolate
3. A tea spoon of vanilla essence
4. 2 cups of dessicated coconut, dried
5. A cup of heavy cream OR half a cup of condensed milk

In a large saucepan place the dark chocolate, cream and vanilla essence. Place this saucepan on a vessel of boiling water. The bottom of the saucepan must not touch the water. Start whisking the 3 ingredients together till they get into a flowing consistency. Turn off the heat and let cool.

Arrange the pound cakes on a large tray. Coat 3 sides of the cake with the chocolate icing OR ganache. Sprinkle coconut on the chocolate coating. Lamington cake is ready.
