I have my going away lunch at work tomorrow and was suppose to organise some australian food...of course I didnt get organised earlier and was just hoping to pick up some pies, lammingtons etc at The Australian Shop (Dachau St) tonight...unfortunately this Australian shop doesnt seem to stock much...so...

 

Does anyone know of anywhere I can pick myself up some four'n'twenties etc, lamo's etc tonight?

 

ok..I know there is prob no chance but one can always hope.

 

cheers

You may want to re-post this in Life in Munich.

 

As it stands now people may think you are selling Aussie Food, not looking for someone who sells/has it.

 

Or I could have misunderstood your post! Sorry! :ph34r:

Yes - I got all excited.

 

If you find a place, let me know. I don't like your chances of finding anything for tonight though. I've been looking for close to 6 years and still haven't found anything...

Make your own lamingtons - it isn't difficult.

Go to Hertie at HBF and buy the following:

So Glasur, Kokosraspel, Sandkuchen.

Tip the Glasur into a shallow bowl and the coconut into another shallow bowl.

Cut the Sandkuchen crusts off and cut into squares, dip into the Glasur to coat and then into the coconut.

Leave to set on a wire tray.

Eat.

That's all they are - slightly stale sponge squares with chocolate and coconut on them, right?

What happened to Hazza's pie maker? Is it still at the arc? They were quite good pies except for the high dome top.

Just a comment about Katrina's recipe...the 'glasur' does not really work.

You need a chocolate syrup that is a bit runny so it soaks into the cake.

The 'glasur' will just sit on the top...making it look like lamingtons, but not taste like it.

Yeah but for someone with no idea about cooking and who is giving it to Germans with no idea about Lamingtons, it will do in a pinch. Especially if the person has no time either. The glasur could always be thinned down with milk or melted butter if needs must.

Alternatively, buy:

and add cocoa powder plus a little water.

 

And you'd have thought I'd have said Lamingtons were Kiwi glancing at some of the PMs I've had on the topic. :lol:

It is easy to pick holes, a wee bit more difficult to be helpful - and they say Poms whinge?!

The UK is probably the closest place for a good pie

Bah! Blasphemy! The closest place is unfortunately on the other side of the world

Katrina...and I mean this in a 'sweet' way

Your lamingtons are more and more turning into petit fours :)

Looking at online recipes, no it isn't, but seeing as the guy wanted to just buy them in the first place, I figured he wasn't a cook and would want a cheat version.

But hopefully a decent non-petit four, non-hard glasur recipe should 'sweetly' get posted quite soon, eh?

Maybe next time

 

Katrina...you gave great ideas, I'll try them out some time

"...the height of Australian cuisine - Lamingtons and meat pies."

 

A bit late now, but just wait until I bring out my Vegemite Swirl Cheesecake with Rhubarb topping - it's quite simply "Super!"

 

Lamingtons are also meant to have a jam filling. So with the above 'cheat recipe' I'd add:

 

cut off the cake crusts

cut cake into 5 cm cubes

split the cubes in half and join back together with strawberry or raspberry jam

thin the icing with water or a little chocolate flavoured ice cream topping

dip the jam centered cake cubes in chocolate coating evenly then dust with coconut

set on a wire rack and put into the fridge to chill before serving

 

If a lamington is just a stale peice of cake dressed up in a choco-coconut coating, then its not an Australian Lamington, thats for sure.

 

;-)

I know this thread is a little old. But I wondered if anyone has a good Lamingtons cake recipe to share. I'd like to make some for a party on Saturday. Does anyone have a 'fool-proof' recipe that ideally works with German baking ingredients? I found this recipe from australianfood.about.com and wanted to use it. Just wondered if anyone had a better recipe to share. I'll post a picture if they turn out nice. ;)
