Ok , so you’re probably saying- “she’s done these before !’ Well i’m guilty but not totally. I did make lamingtons earlier here and they are just the regular chocolate lamingtons. The last time i made them and gave them to my friends they simply adored them, which in turn landed me a offer of supplying desserts to my friends wonderful and one of a kind ‘Sunshine Cafe’ in Labone and ‘Little India Sunshine Salad Bar’ in Osu- Accra. If you ever happen to be in town pls do visit for some of the best salads in west Africa. Its been about 3 weeks since i’ve been sending her a few sweet things and of course the lamingtons are one of them. But i tell you in that short time i already got sick of making the same chocolate versions and so decided to try some other flavours. I saw some passion fruits in the supermarket and i knew right away that this citrus y, zingy flavour would be perfect for my sweet lamingtons. A little sweet and tart outside with the earthy flavour and crunch of the dry dessicated coconut and when you bite into it a sweet melt in your mouth vanilla sponge – yumm. The other flavour i could think of was strawberry – i used flavouring for this one, and for the chocolate i sliced the cake and sandwiched it with some caramel before dipping it in the chocolate icing. I’m really excited about the summery passion fruit and chocolate caramel versions as i know they’re quite original (or atleast i’m hoping so). I’m not writing the recipe again as it already mentioned here. But what i could use is a little help or suggestions with other little desserts / slices / cakes that would be ideal for supplying to the Cafe. My imagination is kinda running dry – i dunno why , so a few ideas from all you wonderful bloggers can get the stone rolling for me 😀

Very tasty idea the passionfruit and the caramel too! They look lovely too.
Maybe you could make banana bread muffins, or Donnna Hay’s maple syrup cakes, or big ginger cookies…

I’ve never made lamingtons, but I have a couple of recipes marked and will get there eventually… These are so beautiful with their multi colours.

Maybe you already have lots of ideas for the cafe’, but scones are quite popular here.Currant and apricot versions seem the most popular, although dried cranberry and pecan is another good combination.
Bar cookies made with an oatmeal crust, jam or jam and dried fruits cooked together, then topped with more oatmeal crust are another popular item. Cut in squares and wrap in cello or plastic wrap or waxed paper.

Kelly- Jane …u shud get around to trying them some day. They very easy to make and taste fantastic.

Elle …those are some really fantastic ideas. I’ve never made scones before and now shud be a good time to give it a try.
