Sugar free lamington recipe - Suncakemom

 

Fancy welcoming New Year with a new sweet treat or do you want something traditional? Love chocolate and coconut? I certainly do. So here’s one of my favorite desserts I can’t imagine my New Year’s Eve without. Chocolate coconut cubes are kind of traditional in some part of Europe. In Australia they are called Lamington and served in the festive season. But I’m quite sure it could be a completely new thing for a lot of cake lovers.

Since I was a little girl my mom had always made these chocolate coconut cubes at least once during our winter holiday.

Ingredients:

For the cake:

  • 300g flour
  • 3 tbsp of agave syrup or honey
  • 3 tbsp of water or milk
  • 100g butter
  • 20g cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp baking powder

For the icing:

  • 250g butter
  • 2 tbsp of agave syrup
  • 4 tbsp of cocoa powder
  • Drops of rum aroma
  • 100ml milk

For the cover:

  • 200g desiccated coconut

How to make it:

1. Beat eggs butter and syrup until pale. 2. Add alternately the cinnamon, flour, baking powder mixture and the milk. Mix them until smooth.

3. Pour the pastry into the baking tray. Put it in the preheated oven at 350ºF (180ºC) for half an hour.

4. Meanwhile make the coating:
Melt butter, cocoa powder, honey, milk and rum aroma in a big saucepan until cocoa powder is completely dissolved.

5. When cake is baked take the tray out of the oven and leave the cake cool down a bit. Then cut it into cube shapes.

6. Use tooth picks to dip the cubes into the chocolate and roll them quickly into the coconut to coat them evenly.

7. Leave them on a cooling tray to dry or put them in the fridge to cool down and dry faster if you can’t wait to try.

Surprise your New Year’s Eve guests with these delicious coconut cubes, look how fast they disappear from the plate.
