Luscious Lamingtons

Luscious Lamingtons


These Lamingtons use our Mini Lamington recipe, but we have added whipped cream and sugar free Berry jam, to make them just that little bit more irresistable.  Bake, assemble, cut in half and spread with jam, then top with whipped cream, pop the top back on and you are ready to go!
