Lemon Lamingtons

This is the quintessential English dessert..

  1. Sponge Cake - 250 gm - preferably in the loaf form, not already cut into pieces
  2. lemon juice - juice of 1 lemon
  3. Fresh double or single cream - 2 tspns
  4. condensed milk - 2 tbspns
  5. butter - 1 - 2 tspns
  6. lemon essence (optional) - 1/2 tspn
  7. vanilla essence - 1/2 tspn
  8. confectioner's sugar - 1 tbspn
  9. grated dry or fresh coconut - 2 tbspns

  1. Cut up the sponge cake into cubes of 2X2 and keep aside
  2. in a separate bowl, mix up the butter, condensed milk and cream till they are combined.
  3. next mix in the lemon juice and the vanilla essence.
  4. mix till all are well combined - this is the frosting mixture
  5. in another plate, sprinkle the grated coconut and keep ready
  6. take one cake cube at a time, and pour your frosting mixture on it, so that everything is well coated in the luscious pale yellow frosting.
  7. coat all your cakes that way and dunk them all in the grated coconut.
  8. Set in the fridge
Serve Cold !
