Let’s be honest — besides vegemite, how many Australian foods do you really know? There’s a lot of amazing foods from the land down under that you need to try, and lamingtons should be at the top of the list.

Lamingtons are sponge cake and jelly sandwiches coated in chocolate and coconut, and are super easy to make. Whether you have them as a dessert or a snack, you’ll definitely enjoy them.

#SpoonTip: Mix and match different flavors of icing and jelly for more varieties of lamingtons.
