During my most recent time abroad I created journal entries and lists of food memories I experienced in all of the countries we visited. As expected, every country had unique flavours, and dishes. Being invited into homes of the locals for dinner, and dessert was a surreal culture and culinary adventure!
The story of Lamingtons for me began in New Zealand where we stopped at a grocery store to get materials for packing a lunch to eat on an island we planned to do hiking on. At the store there were colossal lamingtons. Lamingtons covered in chocolate or raspberry coating. Since we knew we’d be hiking we figured we needed the extra calories.
I decided at this moment in my life I needed to make these petit four-esque treats vegan friendly.
You can replace the coconut milk with cold water. I usually do that in order to save money, the cake turns out just as delicious!
I hope you try this recipe and enjoy it as much as I did!
