    1 hr 30 mins

    1 hr 45 mins

  • Yields: 12 lamingtons


230g butter

1 & 1/4 cups castor sugar

1 teaspoon Vanilla Essence

4 Small eggs

3 Cups SR Flour

Pinch salt

1 Cup Milk


1 cup Icing Sugar

4 tablespoons cocoa

2 drops of Vanilla Essence

4 Tablespoons boiling water

1 teaspoon butter

coconut for coating (approx. 1 cup)


1Line the slow cooker with a piece of baking paper with the edges creeping up the sides so you can use that to get the cake out once cooked.

2Cream Butter & Sugar with electric mixer.

3Add Vanilla essence.

4Add eggs 1 at a time and beat well after each egg.

5Sift flour & salt together.

6Alternate adding part flour & part milk into the mix and beat well until all added

7Pour into sc'er and flatten it out so it is even in the bottom.

8Cook on high for 1:30 with a teatowel under the lid.

9Once your cake is cooked, let it fully cool on a wire rack. Once cooled, cut the edges off to make it a nice square and cut into 12 equal parts.

Chocolate Icing

1Sift icing sugar & cocoa into a bowl.

2Add melted butter and boiling water to the mixture and using a spoon, beat it until it is a 'sloppy' mixture.

3You may need more boiling water.

4Taking care, place a piece of cake into the chocolate mix, coating all sides, then into the coconut coating all sides and place on a tray.

5Continue until all 12 pieces are coated.

6Note : you may need to add boiling water to the chocolate mixture during this time as crumbs may fall off into it, thickening it up. You need the chocolate mixture to remain sloppy


1I used a 7 ltr Breville Slow Cooker which was the perfect size.

2You can fill them with jam and/or cream or leave them as is.

3I remain home when I use a tea towel under the lid

4Tea Towel Trick

5Slow cookers vary in temperature, so please place a skewer in the cake, and when it comes out clean, the cake is cooked

Super easy even for a first time using a slow cooker for baking. Tastes fantastic too!
