Easy Australian Lamington Cake in Cooker

Easy Australian Lamington Cake in Cooker is very easy to make without any fancy tools.

Lamington is an Australian Cake, made from squares of Vanilla Sponge Cake coated with Chocolate Sauce and rolled with desiccated Coconut.

A thin layer of Chocolate is absorbed into the sponge cake and its left to set, giving it a distinctive texture. You can sandwich it with whipped cream or a berry jam to make variations.

I baked a Sponge Cake using Butter, in cooker. Then dipped it in a homemade chocolate sauce. And then rolled it on fresh coconut.

This good old Vanilla Sponge Cake Recipe is slightly adapted from joyofbaking. I have explained how to bake this sponge cake without any fancy tools with pictures. You will need only a whisk, that can be bought in a supermarket.



How to Bake a Cake in Cooker?

  • You will need a Baking Pan that fits in your Cooker.
  • Prepare the pan by applying butter or oil.
  • Cover it with parchment paper cut to pan’s size. If you are baking in a stainless steel pan, then cover the pan on its sides also. Chose a pan that has a flat bottom.
  • Now Prepare the cooker by adding a layer of salt and place a stand that can circulate air.  cooker sponge cake
  • Preheat cooker in full flame for about 10 minutes.
  • Get ready with the Cake Batter.
  • After placing the cake batter in cooker, simmer to low flame to cook it.
  • Check after 25 minutes with a toothpick inserted comes out clean, if not bake it for 5 more minutes.
