This has been a favourite for years AND so easy to make. Not too sure about the name though!


  1. Mix everything BUT NOT the milk.
  2. Heat the milk to just below boiling then pour over mixed ingredients.
  3. Mix well or until butter has melted (although I have left some whole bits in).
  4. Pour into a greased lamington tin
  5. Bake 45 minutes @ 180°C.
  6. Serve with a dusting of icing sugar.

The recipe sounds delicious BUT in order for me to make it, I need the break-down from grams and ml to cups. A Lamington pan measures out to a 13"x9"x2" pan.

I asked my husband (who doesn't cook) to make this cake for me one day while I was bussy. He added lots of greated fresh ginger including the recommended 1 TBS ginger. The cake was for my fathers birthday, he Loves ginger! (hense the added fresh ginger). The cake was SO YUMMY!! I asked him to make one for our son's 2nd birthday. We liked it so much I made up the recipe and put the mix into a piping bag and made mini ginger biscuites and added a filling (ginger kisses). They didn't last long. Thanks for sharing this yummy cake recipe!

Very easy to make. Tasted good too! I ended up using a square tin and a round tin as I didn't have a lamington tin. I also used skim milk made up from powdered milk with no adverse effect on the cake.
