Lady Lamington Cakes Recipe

Lady Lamington Cakes Recipe

I learned to turn out these dainty no-bake cakes while living in Australia. Named for the wife of a past governor from "down under", they make a lip-smacking snack or dessert.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + chilling YIELD:36 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (10-3/4 ounces) frozen pound cake
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 2-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 4 cups flaked coconut, toasted and chopped

Directions

  • 1. Thaw cake; cut into 3/4-in. slices. Cut each slice into four fingers; set aside. In a microwave-safe bowl or saucepan, heat water and butter until butter is melted. Whisk in cocoa until dissolved. Whisk in sugar to make a thin glaze. Dip cakes into glaze to coat all sides; roll in coconut. Place on waxed paper to dry. Cover and refrigerate. Yield: 3 dozen.
