A lamington is an Australian dessert made from sponge cake coated in chocolate and then rolled in coconut flakes, typically with jam or cream sandwiched in the middle. These raw lamingtons have two pieces of sponge cake made with almond and coconut flour with a layer of mixed berry chia jam. If you’ve never tried a lamington before, then this raw version is a fantastic place to start.
Raw Lamingtons Vegan, Gluten-Free
- 1 cup coconut cream
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1-2 teaspoons vanilla powder
- For the Chia Jam:
- 2 tablespoons rice malt syrup
- 3 tablespoons chia seeds
- 1/3 cup coconut oil
Blend all the cake filling ingredients in a food processor. Add coconut cream until smooth and wet consistency. You want the filling to be nice and moist.
Take the half out and spread over a small cake pan. Save the other half of the filling for later.
Blend all the ingredients for chia jam. Spread the jam evenly over the top of cake filling. Pop the cake pan in the freezer to set for 30 minutes.
Remove from the freezer and carefully add the remaining cake filling on top. Pop back in the freezer for about an hour.
Melt coconut oil if needed and mix all the chocolate ingredients. Remove the cake from the freezer and cut into square pieces. One by one, coat the pieces in chocolate and then roll them in the coconut. Refrigerate until set.
