Here is a blog post Lord Lamington himself could get behind! Seriously. There was such a guy. And you guessed it, this chocolate covered sponge cake rolled in coconut is named after his lordship.
Lord Lammo, as I shall affectionately refer to him (for all Australians take proper words and then add an ‘o’ to the end, as in the case of lamington to lammo), was Governor of Queensland from 1896 to 1901.
Warning: this is not a blog post about a good recipe. It does not have a happy ending. But it does have tequila. Thank god.
Now, where was I? Ah yes, here’s the start of a blog post I was writing…
It’s Australia Day tomorrow ! Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi!
With a side of arriiiba because I’m making margarita icy poles to celebrate!
Sure, it’s not as typically Australian as lamingtons, in fact it’s decidedly Mexican. But it’s a great idea.
Don’t argue or I won’t give you one. (more…)
