    Step 1


    Step 2


    Step 3

    Preheat the oven to 180 degrees

    Step 4

    Brush the cake pan with butter

    Step 5

    Line the tray with non stick baking paper

    Step 6

    Use an electric beater to beat the butter and caster sugar into a bowl until lite and fluffy

    Step 7

    Add In 2 eggs 1 at a time and beat well after each addition

    Step 8

    Add half the passion fruit, sour cream, flour and coconut

    Step 9

    Fold in the rest of the passion fruit, sour cream, flour and coconut just like in the last part

    Step 10

    Put mixture into tray and smooth.

    Step 11

    Bake for 30 minutes or until skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean

    Step 12

    Meanwhile, heat milk in a saucepan over medium-low heat until just boiling.

    Step 13

    Add chocolate. Set aside for 3-4 minutes or until the chocolate melts.

    Step 14

    Then strain the extra passion fruit pulp using the sieve to extract 2 tsp of juice and put mix it into the mixture

    Step 15

    After cooking the first mixture trim the sides from the cake. Cut into 16 even squares. Carefully trim crusts from top and bottom of each square

    Step 16

    Place coconut into a tray

    Step 17

    Once your icing is set line it up next to the coconut to make a production line

    Step 18

    The cake was too soft so we couldn't use the actual recipe. What we did was we got a spoon and put the icing on top of the cake. We then rolled the cake into the coconut thus making a lamington!

    Step 19

    The finished product! Marking 9/10!

    Step 20

    Health and safety rules in this recipe 1 Do not use the electric beater around water. Make sure to put the handle of the sauce pan in when cooking. Be careful not to knock over the bowl when mixing.

    Step 21

    Health and safety rules in this recipe 2 Wash hands thoroughly. Wash all equipment carefully. Be careful around flames. Be careful not to burn yourself

    Step 22

    Improvements. The lamingtons where slightly to sweet and fell apart too easily. Besides that they were pretty good! Half of my family are gluten free so next time maybe make them gluten and dairy free
