Today I share with you White Chocolate Lamington

What is Lamington?

A lamington is an Australian cake, made from squares of butter cake or sponge cake coated in an outer layer of chocolate sauce and rolled in desiccated coconut. The thin mixture is absorbed into the outside of the sponge cake and left to set, giving the cake a distinctive texture.

Everybody’s been posting Lamingtons lately and I remembered I had a White Chocolate Lamington recipe I’ve been meaning to try but haven’t because I couldn’t find Bulgarian Yoghurt in my neck of the woods. I subsequently found out that in Bulgaria it’s nothing more than sour milk! My improvisation, however, was adding apple cider vinegar to normal yogurt.

I’ve left this super delicious recipe as is.


  • 1½ cups sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup macadamia oil (normal fine)
  • 2 ½ cups cake four
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp caramel extract
  • zest of 1 lemon

Icing for your White Chocolate Lamington

  • 350g white chocolate, chopped
  • 1½ cup fresh cream
  • 2 tbsp Bulgarian yogurt
  • 300g desiccated coconut


  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC, line a 33cm x 27cm x 5cm tray with baking paper and grease the top of the baking paper. Whisk the sugar and eggs together until light and thick.
  2. Set aside.
  3. Bring the milk and oil to a boil in a small saucepan over medium heat.
  4. Add it to the egg mixture in a thin stream while whisking.
  5. Add the vanilla extract and zest, and mix thoroughly.
  6. Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together.
  7. Fold it into the egg mixture.
  8. Pour the batter into the tray.
  9. Bake until golden and a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes.
  10. Let the cake cool down in the pan, then turn it out onto a wire cooling rack.
  11. Remove the paper and let it cool completely. Cut into squares.
  12. For the icing, melt the chocolate and cream over low heat until smooth, stirring every now and then.
  13. Let it cool to room temperature, then chill it in the fridge.
  14. Whisk it with an electric beater until light and thick.
  15. Add the yogurt and mix lightly.
  16. Cover each square with the chocolate mixture, and roll them in the coconut.
