Any type of plain cake can be used for these lamingtons - sponge cake, pound cake or Madeira cake. Ideally, make the cake the day before for best results, but the important thing is that the cake is completely cooled before icing.
Altered ingredient amounts. After investigation, we found that 1/2 a cup of milk was missing from this ingredients list. It has been added - 15 Apr 2010
Was disapointed with this one, my cake was a flop, it didnt rise well and i couldnt use the cake in the end because it was way too dense and not at all fluffy like a lamington should be. It went in the bin. I have no idea what went wrong but im not happy with all the food i just wasted cooking it. - 29 Mar 2010
I was the best ever tasting lamintons I had ever had but it was a bit hard - 11 Jul 2012
