The New Zealanders might have officially claimed the Pavlova as their own, but Aussies firmly hold onto the humble Lamington as our national dessert. And we plan to keep it that way. This Lamington recipe consists of squares of sponge cake dipped in chocolate icing and rolled in coconut. These little cakes have appeared at BBQs, fundraisers and cake stalls for generations.
