Anyway everyone loves a lamington so this is what I have made for this week.... Can't play by the rules though so this one is a combo of reeipes to make my own. There is a special secret ingredient inside too which everyone at work tomorrow will get to try.
Enjoy the pictures and hopefully tummy rumbles.
ps: I should note that this blog should be sponsored by Woolworths ... I seem to spend half my life in there buying fresh ingredients all the time. Either that or I should take out shares in an IGA store. Imagine that, I could go back to my roots as a checkout chick who scanned 14 items a minute. Yes, yes I did. Held the record for a little while too with that speediness.
Here I am trying to squeeze the juice out whilst taking a picture. PLEASE NOTE THAT I GREW THIS LEMON!!! 1 year ago I bought a lemon and lime tree from Bunnings and now I have fruit. Miracle. I put it down to the bees doing their job well.
This punnett of raspberries was only $3.90 ... BARGAIN. Got get some. And while you are there, blueberries were only a touch more (that's a rarity).
Simmering away for 10 mins. My kitchen smelt divine.
Sifting the flour ... not once, not twice but 3 times.
Adding the Dutch cocoa (again sifted 3 x times) ... and if someone can explain the difference to me about why you have to use Dutch cocoa and not any other nation ... that would be super great.
The mixture as you are stirring it ... still amazes me.
The therapy part .... pouring the chocolate and coconut over the lamington cakes
And we have the Fiona version of tripple choc raspberry lamingtons ... Enjoy.
