Sizable Little Allergy Friendly World Sweet Comes To Life
Today’s allergy friendly offering comes to us from Down Under. Growing up, I remember my mom baking chocolate chip cookies. In Australia, that ritual involves bite size sponge cakes. If you like our gluten free take on these you may want to revisit previous versions of clafautis and tea cakes too. Check out Kitchology’s Eat.Better app for even more ideas.
Lamington are little sponge cakes just the right size for one. Sandwiched between them is typically a cream or jam filling. Today, we’re keeping ours simple with a single cake layer. After pieces are cut from the baked square, they are covered in a thin chocolate icing that soaks into the sponge cake creating a most decadent treat. Finally, the iced tiny cakes are immediately rolled in shredded coconut. Is your mouth watering yet?
To think, just by making a few allergy friendly swaps you, too, are ready, mate. So, throw another shrimp on the barbie and let’s get cooking!
