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.
