Sprinkle Lamingtons


2 cups plain flour
1 1/4 cup castor sugar
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 cup milk
3 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
60 ml vinegar
2 tsp vanilla essence
2 tsp baking soda

For Chocolate Coating:

350 gm icing sugar
60 gm cocoa powder
180 ml boiling water
2 cups of coloured sprinkles


  1. Preheat the oven to 170 degree celcius. Lightly grease a lamington tin with butter and line it with baking paper.
  2. Sift the flour, sugar, cocoa powder and baking soda into a large bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs.  Then add the vinegar, oil and milk, whisking constantly and mix well.
  4. Pour the liquid ingredients (step 3) into the dry ingredients (step 2), and mix until just combined.
  5. Then pour the mix into the prepared lamington tin.
  6. Bake it in the preheated oven for about 30-40 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  7. Remove from the oven and leave aside to cool. Once the cake has completely cooled, cut into 4 cm cubes (25-30 cubes).
  8. To make the chocolate coating, combine the icing sugar and cocoa powder in a bowl and slowly whisk in the hot water, making sure there are no lumps.
  9. Put the sprinkles into a large, clean bowl.
  10. Dip the cake cubes into the chocolate coating, making sure they are covered well on all sides.
  11. Place the cubes onto a wire rack with tray underneath to drain the excess coating.
  12. After 4-5 minutes, roll the cubes in the sprinkles. Place the lamingtons on a tray and leave them in the fridge to set completely…
