Last month I was not very well....lots of health problems...so couldnt post more recipe's in my blog......I am starting this month with a lovely dessert called 'Lamington'..
The chocolate lamington is an Australian dessert, which consists of sponge cake dipped in chocolate and liberally sprinkled with fine desiccated coconut.
When I saw the recipe and video,,i was very exited to prepare this cake and to taste....but due to my health problem i was not able to prepare from many days..Finally I prepared it yesterday...and I was not very sure how it will taste and also my kid don't like coconut favor so I only prepared 4 piece,but when I ate it I love this lamingtons and my hubby too liked it very much..so it was supper hit...
and also I had my very first Client for Henna...I was so so happy to apply henna on her hand ..I will be posting about this in my other blog (Chitravali)very soon....

vegetable/sunflower oil 6-7 TBSP
White sugar 1/2 cup
vanilla extract 1TBSP

warm water 3-4TBSP
For Chocolate sauce:
Icing sugar 2TBSP
Coca powder 1tsp
Desiccated coconut for dipping the cake(take one bowl full and use as required)
How to prepare white sponge:
Pre heat the oven at 350c/180 deg/gas mark 4. Grease and dust flour for a 8" square cake pan and keep aside.
Add ground flax seed in the warm water and keep it aside.
Sieve together flour,baking powder, baking soda and salt and mix well .
In another bowl, whisk together the milk, sugar,venilla exract,lemon juice and oil.Now add the orange juice and flax seed water, and whisk again.
Now add the dry ingredients in to the liquid slowly and fold in till everything is just mixed together.
Once the cake batter is ready spoon into the lined pan . Tap the pan to spread the batter and keep aside for 5 mins to release air bubbles
Now Place the pan in the centre of the pre heated oven and bake for about 30-35 mins(mine took 40 mins)till the top is lightly browned and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool the cakes in the pan for two minutes and transfer to a rack, upside down (to cool completely).
How to prepare Chocolate sauce:
Mix all the ingredients under 'For Chocolate sauce:' and whisk together to make sauce.
How to prepare Lamingtons:
Once the cake is completely cool cut them in to small small rectangle or square.
Take a rectangle and first dip in the chocolate sauce and then coat with desiccated coconut. Then keep it on the rack.....
Let it sit for 1 to 2 hours..then serve........huummmmm yummy Lamnigtons...
