Australia's famous Lamingtons are squares of sponge cake that are first dipped in chocolate glaze and then in coconut. This cookie version's inside is denser and loaded with toasted almonds.
great recipe all the family loved them.i left out the almonds.family member with nut alergies.i made a second batch and dipped them in seedless strawberry jam and they where great too.try this as an alternative to chocolate.sponge mix very moist and delicious.i use this all the time either with chocolate or jam. - 26 Apr 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Great recipe - all the family loved them. I left out the almonds because of a family member with nut alergies. I made a second batch and dipped them in seedless strawberry jam and they where great too! - 11 Aug 2008 (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
Made these for my son's class as they were studying Australia. They tasted amazing, was not sure the class would like them as they are quite different to the cakes we have in the UK but they all went. They did not all come out in a perfect square but who cares they tasted fine. One mistake I made was to coat them in the icing shortly after being cooked and a lot of the cake crumbled into the mix, wish I had read the bit about cooking the cake mixture the day before icing them! ha ha well lesson learnt. - 01 May 2015 (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
