This Lamington Banana Ice Cream Slab is incredible! Such a cool and Summery dessert!

The humble sponge coated in chocolate icing and rolled in coconut has come a long way hasn’t it? Especially when you see it incorporated into this dessert.

And what could be more Australian than lamington, banana and ice cream all smooshed together to make a massive ice cream slab?

If you’ve never been sure about the history of the this little Aussie gem, here’s a quick recap from “Everything you need to know about lamingtons“:

“…  first invented in Queensland, with a recipe appearing in the Queensland Country Life newspaper as early as 1900. According to Queensland Government House, the lamington was created by the chef of the state’s eighth governor, Lord Lamington, to feed unexpected visitors.

Since 2006 it’s even been honoured with its own National Lamington Day, which is 21 July”.
