You'll have to excuse the not so great photography for this one. I was in a rush taking photos and preparing for the breast cancer party. I had this recipe in my recipe folder for sometime and finally got to make them.
They were just delightful! So light and simple to make, they were a huge hit. One of my guests said "I'm in love with your lamingtons!!" which is always a good sign. Some people said they were delicious although they would have liked some jam and cream with them.
