Our beautiful friends Razzy and Laiky have become first time parents! Congratulations to them 🙂
A while back, they threw a baby shower (which was a pot luck event) and I brought baked goods to the party. I know right?
I made Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies (to be posted) and these amazing Double Chocolate Lamingtons which I had found and bookmarked from Dan Lepard’s (no relation to Def Leppard) article from 2012 just before Australia’s ANZAC day. When it got another mention earlier this year on The Age, I knew I had to make them soon.
I’m going to just say, the recipe not only makes a fine chocolate cake (which I’ll probably make again), it certainly added some colour and fun to Peanut’s party (which was what we’d taken to calling the baby).
To those of you who think it’s pretty much sacrilegious to take on a twist to the traditional lamington recipe, it’s all about having fun and embracing change.
Congratulations again April and Laik! You’re going to be such awesome parents and baby Peanut is so lucky! I love you already @juniorfoodtrail
For the rest of you, I would like to share with you this recipe 🙂
So what do you think? Not too complicated at all is it?
I might make a variation on this the next time I make it and twirl in some peanut butter for an added salty tang! Sounds good?
It doesn’t have to be ANZAC Day or Australia Day to make these! As long as you like chocolate and coconut, I think you’ll be pleased with this.
There was only one piece of this left when the party ended (trust me, that was a great feat considering how much food there was at the party) and it was hugged by Peanut’s father 😛
