Recipe: The Best Homemade Gluten Free Lamingtons

Easy Gluten Free Homemade Lamingtons Recipe - low fat, gluten free, nut free, dairy free, lower sugar, homemade gluten free sponge cake recipe, healthy australia day recipes

There's a first and a last time for everything in life and this is the first and last time I'm making lamingtons...

Those are the words that came out of my mouth when I first experimented with this recipe. 

I had chocolate sauce all over the kitchen, dessicated coconut between my toes, sticky fingers and I was D-O-N-E. 

Or so I thought.

One lamington in and I was ready to quit... but I had a whole bowl of icing leftover, so I stuck the second one in determined to use at least half of the mix.

Second lamington down, I stuck in the third - and then I realised it wasn't so bad. 

But don't get me wrong, I was still frustrated. I hate sticky, messy recipes and this was perhaps the messiest of all - but I was determined. I was going to succeed at making homemade lamingtons.

At the end, my kitchen was a mess - but I had container after container of homemade lamingtons that actually looked pretty decent. 

One by one my family tasted them - and they got their seal of approval. 

One by one those lamingtons disappeared from the container.... and one by one the requests came in for more.

This is quite possible the best gluten free lamington recipe - and I want to say the easiest too - but the mess is kind of frustrating. 

If you're like me and mess and sticky fingers are not your thing - worry not! I've got the perfect solution for you in the recipe as well. A solution that doesn't involve any dipping or rolling but still tastes seriously, ridiculously good. 

So let me share the recipe with you! >>

Recent Things: Unexpected House Guests, Unicycles and Sketches


Hello, lovely ones! I'm kind of glad you can't see me right now because girl is a hot mess

Last week I was writing my Recent Things post with a very sick husband and this week I've been the sick one. After waking up at 5:30 with a coughing fit and crazy hair, I'm feeling less than stellar - but luckily I have more to share than snotty tissues in this week's recent things post. 

So let me catch you up on our week >>
