Classic Australian Lamingtons

"Australian Lamingtons are probably the most famous cake recipe to come from Down Under. Squares of moist butter cake coated in chocolate icing and rolled in desiccated coconut are every bit as good as they sound! The classic Lamington is a square of sponge cake, coated in chocolate icing and tossed in coconut. The chocolate icing soaks into the sponge and helps stick the coconut to the surface. The sponge is moist and buttery whilst the coating around it helps maintain the freshness of the sponge squares. Variations include the sponge squares being cut in half and filled with whipped cream and/or strawberry jam."
