Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 160C and line a small slice tray (or square cake tray) with baking paper, greasing the pan first helps the paper stick and therefore a neat looking sponge cake
  • Add wet sponge ingredients (eggs, softened butter, rice syrup, natvia and vanilla) to your food processor or blender and mix on a medium / high speed until everything is very well combined
  • Add the Almond meal, Arrowroot and baking powder and gently combine on a slower speed until the mixture is even
  • Pour / spatula the cake batter into your prepared tray and bake for 20 - 25 minutes until the sponge is golden brown and just firm to touch (no runny bits in the centre)
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool out of the slice tray
  • While your yummy sponge cake is baking and / or cooling you can make your homemade healthy strawberry jelly
  • Boil the kettle and brew 2 of your fruit tea bags in 1 cup of water
  • Place the vibrant red tea in a small saucepan with your strawberries (preferably frozen)
  • Let the strawberries cook down on a low heat then give them a really good mash with a potato masher to release all the colour and flavour
  • Strain the strawberry pulp out and return the fruit tea / strawberry juice to the stove on a low heat
  • Add the Natvia and Rice syrup and stir until dissolved the remove from heat
  • Now sprinkle the gelatin into the liquid, whisking as you go, stir until all of the gelatin is dissolved
  • Transfer the Jelly mixture into small bowl to cool then place in the fridge for a short while to start to firm up (if it is refrigerated too long it will start to turn solid, you need a thick liquid to dip the sponge into, easy to turn liquid again by gently heating up a little)
  • While the Jelly starts to thicken in the fridge, take a sharp knife and slice the cooled sponge into even pieces, I cut 24 slices
  • Place the sponge slices in the freezer to firm up for the "dipping stage"
  • Once the Jelly is nice and thick but still liquid remove it from fridge and get your production line ready 1) jelly to dip 2) coconut to roll 3) a tray to place the finished lamingtons on
  • Remove the slice from the freezer and begin the process, give them a really good soak in the jelly before gently rolling in coconut
  • Once all covered put your lamingtons in the fridge to set
  • Any extra jelly can be set in a jelly mould to enjoy
  • The Lamingtons last for a few days air tight in the fridge, Happy Sugar Free Australia Day!
  • Enjoy xoxSha

    I would have gone for these when I was a junk food devotee too. Nice recipe, thankyou!

      Oh thanks Nat!

    Can you tell me where you buy arrowroot flour. I could only find arrowroot which is tapioca flour and I understand it to be different to arrowroot flour. Thank you

      Hello Renae. Tapioca flour is fine to use too. I get my Arrowroot flour either from an Asian grocer or a health food shop but I’ve seen small packs of them in supermarkets too. Thanks, Sha

    Hi Sha, thanks for this tasty & simple recipe. My son and I loved it.
    I was a little worried when my sponge looked so thin (about 1-2cm), but once I cut it up and rolled in jelly/coconut, they were perfect. I’d even make the jelly again on its own. Yum!
