Cafe Latte Lamingtons with Strawberry

Lamingtons are a sponge cake (or, more traditionally, butter cake) in the shape of a cube, coated in a layer of traditionally chocolate icing then desiccated coconut. They are sometimes served as two halves with a layer of cream and/or strawberry jam between, and are commonly found in Australasian outlets such as cafes, lunch bars, bakeries, and supermarkets. This quick dessert recipe is a true Aussie classic. Preparation time 15 minutes, serves 6.

300ml thickened cream
1 tbs coffee liqueur (such as Tia Maria)
1 tbs icing sugar
6 Woolworths Chocolate Lamingtons, halved horizontally
115g (1/3 cup) strawberry jam
Dark chocolate curls, to serve

Place the cream, liqueur and icing sugar in a medium bowl. Use an electric beater to beat until firm peaks form. Reserve 1/4 cup of the cream mixture.

Spread the cut side of the lamington bases with the jam. Spoon or pipe the cream mixture over the jam. Top with the remaining lamington. Divide among serving plates. Top with the reserved cream mixture and chocolate curls to serve.
