Australian Lamingtons.

Hello Friends!!!

 I have been wanting this for long time...I didn't get time to bake it  as It is already in my list what to bake next!!! Always being as a baker I always try new different cakes and found out it is very chocolatey and coated with desiccated coconut. It is super challenging and It came out in my 1st attempt. It is originated from Australia...It is super sponge cake filled with chocolate frosting and coated with coconut flakes. It is so heavenly and it is super wet and it can never be dry inside.It tasted really like bounty chocolate  :)

It is the best mini cake and it is small sized bite ones. Here goes the recipe and try for it Thank you Priya!!
