Recipe: Vegan Lamingtons

An Aussie childhood favourite, made vegan. To ensure you don't miss out on this iconic treat this National Lamington Day, 21 July, we've whipped up a plant-based version for you to create.



70g melted vegan butter

½ cup sugar

1tsp vanilla paste

150ml plant-based milk

180g self-raising flour


Any type of jam, we’ve used raspberry.

Chocolate coating:

1/2 cup icing sugar

2 tbsp cocoa powder

Pinch of salt

80ml soy milk

2 tbsp melted vegan butter

2 tbsp hot water

Desiccated coconut (for rolling)


1. Preheat oven 180c.

2. Combine vegan butter, sugar, vanilla, salt and soy milk. Whisk to combine then add in self-raising flour and whisk again to form a smooth batter.

3. Line non-stick baking paper in a baking loaf tin (23 cm x 13 cm) then pour mixture into tin and bake for 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.

4. Turn out and let sponge and cool. Once cool, split the sponge into half evenly. Spread Raspberry Jam on each cut side of the sponge. Put sponge layers back together.

5. Cut the sponge into 8 squares and set aside in the fridge.

6. To prepare chocolate coating, whisk all ingredients except the desiccated coconut to combine.

7. Dip each sponge into chocolate coating and immediately roll in Desiccated Coconut. Repeat with remaining sponge squares.
