~Faux Foodie Friday ~Lamington CAKE and WIN a Slow Cooker/Sous

Vide and GF 4 Ingredients!!!

I was going to do a Failsafe Friday recipe but I’m just not feeling it. No really, I’m just not feeling it! I am so frustrated with the ongoing sagas of my suspected intolerances that I’m just going to have to “bite the bullet” and do a full on elimination and then test. I’m struggling with coffee (decaf only), dairy and a few other things and am getting really sick and tired of trying to figure out why I just feel unwell. So, while I’ll be eating brown rice and vegetables for every meal (not really but it feels like it!), I will still cook my family and you because you deserve lovely treats too :)

So instead of a Failsafe recipe today, you are getting a Faux Foodie Friday! I’ve made a few versions of Lamington’s for you and THESE were my absolute favourites!

Roy also had that massive cake size Lamington week before last in Hobart which got me thinking about a Lamington cake.

I made this out of a beautifully light sponge cake and it came together quickly and easy as 1-2-3! Make it to share with friends or your beautiful family. It’s a new take on an Aussie tradition!

Level one of the cakes so it is flat on top when fully cooled. Place this layer on a cake plate and top with the Twinkie Cream Filling.

Spread strawberry jam on top of the filling and top with the second layer of sponge cake.
