“The little lamingtons featured here are sublime as after-dinner sweet treats. You can make them ahead, too, as they can be stored in airtight containers at room temperature for a few days. (Recipe from TheAge Newspaper - Aussie Classics January 2005). Preparation time includes standing time for the lamingtons to dry.”
