Lamington Cupcakes

Yesterday Ella's kindy celebrated Harmony Day with a little party where we shared foods from different cultures. I wanted to bring lamgintons, a true Aussic classic, but I wanted to make it a bit easier for me to make (less work) plus I had found these super cute Aussie cupcake liners so thought why not make them into cupcakes!

I found this recipe in my cookbook, not sure where it originated from as its been in there a few years, I just made a quarter amount of icing as only needed it for the tops.






















Lamington Cupcakes
Made: 20 small-medium cupcakes

Ingredients:
  • 125g butter, soft
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups SR Flour
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk (or normal milk)
  • Coconut for sprinkling on tops
ICING
  • 1/2 cup icing mixture
  • 1 Tbsp cocoa
  • 1/2 tsp butter, soft
  • up to 1 Tbsp Boiling water  
Method:
  1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees and line muffin tray with cupcake liners.
  2. Cream together butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy.
  3. Add eggs and mix together until well combined.
  4. Add flour and buttermilk gently mix together.
  5. Pour into cupcake liners and bake for 15-20mins or until a skewer comes out clean when tested.
  6. Allow to cool down completely before icing.
  7. In a small bowl add icing mixture, cocoa & melted butter.
  8. Gradually add boiling water tiny bits at a time and mix well until you get a good thick icing consistency (I found using a whisk easiest). You may not need all the water so do it gradually.
  9. If you add too much water, just add more icing mixture.
  10. Ice top of the cupcakes and sprinkle with coconut

ENJOY! :-)
