The instruction how to make Basic chocolate lamingtons

  1. Preheat oven to 180C. Grease and line the base and sides of a 20cm x 30cm lamington pan with baking paper. Use an electric mixer on high speed to whisk the eggs and sugar in a bowl for 10 mins or until mixture is thick and creamy and sugar dissolves.
  2. Meanwhile, sift the combined flour and cornflour into a bowl. Repeat 2 more times.
  3. Sift the flour mixture over the egg mixture and use a metal spoon or balloon whisk to gently fold until just combined. Add the butter and boiling water and gently fold until just combined. Pour into the prepared pan.
  4. Bake for 20-25 mins or until the cake springs back when lightly pressed. Cool in the pan for 5 mins before turning onto a wire rack. Cover with a damp tea towel and set aside to cool completely.
  5. To make the chocolate icing, combine the icing sugar, cocoa powder, butter and water in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir until smooth and runny.
  6. Place the coconut in a large bowl. Use a large serrated knife to cut the cake into 12 squares. Using 2 forks, dip 1 cake square into the icing and gently turn to coat. Lift and let the excess icing drip off. Transfer to the coconut and gently turn to coat. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with the remaining cake, icing and coconut. Set aside for 30 mins to set.
