PREPARATION

1
Preheat oven to 170°C. Grease and line a pan with baking paper.
2
Beat the vanilla extract, sugar and butter in a bowl until fluffy; individually adding eggs and beating well between.
3
Sift half of the flour into the mixture and add half of the milk, stirring to blend. Repeat with the remaining flour and milk.
4
Pour the mixture into the greased pan and bake for 25 minutes. Insert a skewer and if it comes out clean, it is ready. If not, put back into the oven in 5 minute intervals, checking until the skewer comes out clean.
5
Once lamingtons are baked, leave to cool for 20 minutes then flip them onto a wire rack to cool further.
6
To make icing combine boiling water, cocoa and icing sugar until a syrup consistency is formed.
7
Once cooled, cut the lamingtons into squares. Place coconut and icing in separate bowls.
8
Cut a lamington square in half and lather it with Jam. Close the lamington and (with a fork) dip into the chocolate icing then roll in coconut. Repeat until all lamingtons are coated.

Leave the icing to set, and enjoy!
