Raspberry Lamingtons

- Advertisement -


115g butter
1/2 cup caster sugar
2 eggs
1 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 packet raspberry jelly
1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
3/4 cup cream, whipped


You can of course use bought sponge but lamingtons are so much nicer with fluffy home made sponge.
Preheat oven to 180 C. Beat butter and sugar until pale and creamy, add eggs , one at a time, beating well after each.
Sift over combined flour and baking powder and add along with milk and vanilla.
Pour into a square 20 cm lined cake tin and bake for 20 minutes.

Make the raspberry jelly by combing 1 packet of jelly with 1 cup boiling water, allow to cool and partially set but still pourable.
Allow the sponge to cool completely and often putting it in the freezer briefly will make it easier to slice.  Cut sponge into 5 cm squares.
Dip sponge squares into jelly and then into coconut.
Allow to set and then cut almost in half and fill with whipped cream.
Serve with fresh raspberries if in season.

  1. I really liked this post i ead your blog very often, and you’re constantly coming out with a lot of great stuff.
    I shared this on my fb, and my followers really liked it.
    Keepp up the good work :)

  2. It’s awesome to go to see this web site and reading the views of all
    mates regarding this paragraph, while I am also eager of getting know-how.

  3. Here is the best sponge recipe ever. NO fail and no flour.
    4 eggs separated
    3/4 cup of sugar
    1 tsp baking soda
    1 cup cornflour
    2 TBSP custard powder
    1 tsp cream of tartar
    beat egg whites until stiff then gradually add the sugar and while beating add the yolks then the 3 times sifted dry ingredients. Put into prepared sponge roll tin with deep sides or 2 round 23cm tins and bake 15-20 mins or until it springs back when you touch it. Drop on the bench just after cooking, it makes it light.

  4. Is the raspberry jelly the same as raspberry jello mix? I’m from America and I can’t seem to find the jelly packets. Or are the packets equivalent to jam but in powder form? Thanks!

  5. Yew trees are one of the best ways to make Rune – Scape gold in F2P so most yew trees are usually crowded.
    Table 2: Fish needed to train cooking from level 50-99 without
    burning. It is closely tied with the release of Rune – Scape 3 and the future changes to the game.

    • Have you ever tried the sponge recipe on the back of the fielders cornflour box? As long as you follow the recipe word for word thats the best recipe, I have tried many and flopped but the fielders cornflour is light fluffy, I think the real hint is to use a steel slotted spoon. Good Luck. love to know how you get on.
