A simple recipe of eggless sponge cake dipped in strawberry jam and rolled in coconut. I wanted to eat some cake to kick start my weekend but since in India its festival time I could not  use  egg  so digged out this old sponge cake recipe mum would make. Lamingtons are traditionally iced with chocolate icing but i used strawberry glaze. Had my weekend sweet fix with my morning cup of coffee 🙂



  • 1 (400g )  sweetened condensed milk
  • 280g self raising flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 120 g butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 4 tbsp strawberry jam
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut  (dry coconut powder)



  1. Sieve the flour, baking powder and baking soda together.
  2. Mix the flour mixture, condensed milk, melted butter, essence and  milk and beat well.
  3. Pour the mixture into a greased and dusted 150 mm. (6″) diameter tin.
  4. Bake in a hot oven at 175 C  for 30 minutes. 
  5. Insert a skewer and if it comes out clean cake is done. Take out from the oven and leave for a few minutes to cool. Invert the tin over a rack and tap sharply to remove.
  6. In a saucepan take jam and add water to it and heat it.
  7. Cut the cake into pieces and dip them in jam mixture and then roll in the coconut powder.
