How to make Lamingtons

I remember making Lamingtons when I was a child. Didn’t know it was a famous Australian dessert back then. It was a cake I was making with my sisters while messing up the whole kitchen counter with coconut spilling all over.

For years it was a staple dessert we would make. I guess we loved the coconut and chocolate combo and how simple it was to make it.

I still love the Lamingtons for the same reason. πŸ™‚

What is the first thing that comes to mind when somebody says Pavlova cake?

My mind immediately gets filled up with the idea of a sweet and crunchy base with fresh whipped cream and fruit on top.

Do you get the same kind of idea?

I love Pavlova cake because there are many versions and it’s hard to say which one is the “best Pavlova recipe”!

There is a Mini Pavlova, Large Pavlova, Wreath Pavlova, Layered Pavlova cake, Pavlova with flat meringue base or the one that looks like a cup.

Crostata di marmellata (Italian Tart with Jam)

Learn to make Italian Crostata di marmellata (Italian Tart with Jam) and your friends will love you even more! πŸ™‚

I love all kinds of crostata di marmellata and their versatility. You can make them with all kinds of jam and in all kinds of shapes. πŸ™‚ Big or small they are one of my favorite Italian desserts.

Typically the pastry for crostata di marmellata needs to rest in the fridge and when you are trying to form it later it brakes easily.

That’s why I will show you today a SUPER easy recipe I have made yesterday and it’s small leftovers were also delicious this morning. Usually, the large quantity of butter in doe makes it more breakable but since we have added yogurt it will become more workable and less caloric. πŸ™‚
