In preparation for Australia Day, we originally intended to provide you with a funky lamington recipe to take to your mate's barbecue tomorrow. But then we found Mr. P, and the base fell out of the baking tin of our mind. This man is weirdo-lamington king.
For the past few years in a row, he's made it his duty to try and re-invent the Lamington. Now, don't get all uppity that a Welshman has taken this noble crusade instead of an Aussie - you should have had the idea first! Mr. P has opted out of his project this year, but that means it's the perfect time to have a little retrospective.
Here are some of our favourites:
- musk lamingtons
- Cherry Ripe lamingtons
- a Prince-flavoured treat called a "Purple Rain" lamington
- popcorn lamingtons
- pina colada lamingtons
- and the likewise non-alcoholic 'lamingtini'
- baked alaska lamingtons
- frozen lamingtons
- tiramisu lamingtons
and even something called a white blood cell lamington.
Lamingtons lamingtons lamingtons. Go crazy, and then cover it in coconut flakes.
