(In which Mr. P breaks all the rules!)
A nod to our friends enjoying the Australian Summer.
I did say that not all my lamingtons had to be cake. But I know this is quite naughty even by my standards.
Nevertheless, when re-inventing the lamington, I have allowed myself to be inspired by traditional lamingtons, but also the freedom to play with the formula a little. So while this is undoubtedly more of a dessert... I'm allowing it into the challenge. Also, I have just had a roster change at work, and so don't have time to bake any more.
I think these are quite good though, all things considered. Definitely more for the children, but still...
You will need:
ice-cream (any flavour)
milk chocolate (about 50g per portion)
dessicated coconut (ditto)
hundreds and thousands
- Scoop balls of ice-cream onto a cling film lined plate or baking tray, and freeze until very hard (at least an hour).
- Melt the chocolate, and cool slightly. Put the coconut into a bowl, and do the same with the hundreds and thousands.
- Impale each ice-cream ball on a fork, and dip into the molten chocolate, followed by the coconut and then the hundreds and thousands.
Don't forget to Re-Invent the Lamington! Deadline 26 January.
