Allergy free lamingtons recipe

  • 1 cup Orgran all purpose flour
  • 1 cup Orgran self-raising flour
  • ½ cup cornflour
  • 1¼ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup water
  • ¾ cup goat’s milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence, to taste
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 5 tsp Orgran No Egg whisked with 240mls water until thick
Chocolate coconut icing
  • 2 cups desiccated coconut
  • 2 cups icing sugar mixture
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup goat’s milk (start with slightly less)
  • ¼ cup boiling water (start with slightly less)

  • Preheat oven to 180°C.
  • Brush a 19 x 29cm square pan with melted Nuttlex or spray oil to lightly grease.
  • Line the base and sides with non-stick baking paper, allowing it to overhang slightly.
  • Sift the flours together into a large bowl.
  • Add the goat’s milk, water, baking powder and vanilla essence and beat for a minute until the batter is smooth and stringy. Don't overbeat.
  • In a large mixing bowl, with an electric mixer, beat the sugar and No Egg mixture together until thickened and bubbly. About 1-2 minutes.
  • Add the No egg sugar mixture to the batter a bit at a time.
  • Use a large metal spoon to gently fold the two mixtures together until just evenly combined.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared cake tin.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes or until the top starts to turn golden and the cake is cooked all the way through.
  • Turn the cake onto a wire rack, cover with a clean tea towel and set aside to cool completely.
  • Trim the edges of the cake and cut into squares.
  • Pick off any bits that are peeling away from each square of cake.
Chocolate coconut icing
  • Spread the coconut over a plate.
  • To make the chocolate icing, sift the icing sugar and cocoa powder into a medium bowl.
  • Add the goat’s milk and water and stir until smooth.
  • Use 2 forks or skewers to dip 1 cake square at a time into the warm icing to evenly coat.
  • Allow any excess icing to drip off.
  • Roll the cake in the coconut then place the cake on a wire rack.
  • Repeat with the remaining cake squares.
  • Set aside for 1 hour or until icing sets.
