Being a Masterchef addict, I was a it confused the other night when they had to cook lamingtons. What the heck are lamingtons? So, as usual, I decided to find out.
You will need:
1 pkt sponge cake mix - or make your own sponge cake mix

1/3 cup NESTLÉ Baking Cocoa
3 cups icing sugar

3/4 cup milk
4 cups desiccated coconut
1. Preheat oven to 180°C while you prepare the cake mix as directed on packet. Spoon evenly into an 18cm x 28cm square baking tin lined with greaseproof paper. Bake approx. 25-30 minutes until cooked. Remove from tin and cool completely.
2. Combine in pan condensed milk, golden syrup and butter. Bring to the boil, stirring constantly, then simmer 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and cool.
3. Cut cake in half horizontally then sandwich together with caramel and refrigerate until set. Cut cake into squares.
