Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at time and beat until mixture is light and creamy.

Add milk, self-raising flour and salt, stirring until mixed.

Spoon mixture into 20 cm square cake pan lined with baking paper and bake in a preheated 180ºC oven for 40-45 minutes, or until the cake is cooked through.

Turn out onto a wire rack and allow to cool.

Cover and then set aside for 24 hours.


Mix icing sugar, salt, pink food colouring and butter in a bowl. Pour in enough boiling water to make a runny icing.

Place cake on a board and cut into 9 – 12 squares, depending how big you’d like your lamingtons to be.

Place coconut in a dish. Mix in a few drops of pink food colouring and then dip cake pieces in icing, then toss in coconut.

Place on a plate to serve.
