  • 125g butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup desiccated coconut
  • 150g cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup raspberry jam
  • 2 cups icing sugar mixture
  • 1/4 cup boiling water
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut, extra, for coating


  1. Prepare Lamington Base:
    • Preheat your oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Grease and line a 3cm-deep, 20cm x 30cm (base) lamington pan.
    • Using an electric mixer, beat butter, sugar, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition (mixture may curdle).
    • Sift half the flour over the butter mixture. Stir to combine. Add half the milk. Stir to combine. Repeat with the remaining flour and milk.
    • Spread the mixture into the prepared pan. Smooth the surface. Bake for 25 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Stand in the pan for 10 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack. Cover with a clean tea towel. Set aside overnight to cool.
  2. Prepare Cheesecake Filling:
    • Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese until light and fluffy.
    • Spread the cooled lamington base with raspberry jam. Top with the cream cheese mixture. Refrigerate for 4 hours or until firm.
  3. Assemble Lamingtons:
    • Cut the lamington into squares. Place icing sugar and boiling water in a heatproof bowl. Stir until smooth. Place coconut in a shallow dish.
    • Dip each lamington square into the icing, ensuring it is evenly coated. Shake off excess icing, then toss the lamington in coconut to coat.
    • Place the coated lamingtons on a wire rack over a baking tray to set.
