It's Australia Day tomorrow and what better way to get into the Aussie Spirit than to whip up a batch of Fresh, Soft, Chocolaty Lamingtons! Just perfect to share with your friends and family! (If there is any left after you finished icing them)
I cannot take ownership of this recipe as it is from one of my favourite recipe books - Classic Country Collection!
It has some great old style recipe's, the ones you remember as a kid such a her famous pumpkin scones, fruit cakes, neenish tarts, lamingtons etc etc!

Simply Tea Sipper
A perfect accompaniment to any aussie delight such as these lamingtons would be our Australian Daintree. It is a superb black tea, grown near the Daintree rainforest of northern Queensland. The rich, fertile, lowland soil produces a well-rounded, medium strength tea.
You can purchase our Australia Daintree tea for $7.00/100g or $2.00 for a sample Bag.
