    It’s a nice sponge recipe. I ate them all before I got the chocolate covering on (I didn’t have enough powdered sugar). I ate them with cream and sugar free jam. About to make another bunch (just the sponge) to take camping. I’ll bring cream and jam with me and eat them like a scone.

    • Yum, you’re made me hungry Renee I haven’t made the keto lamingtons for a while now, I’m overdue. Thanks for the feedback.

  2. I didn’t make Lamingtons, but used the sponge recipe for a layer cake with coconut “ding ding cream” frosting and a keto strawberry jam filling. This is the best keto sponge recipe I have ever made. I am going to try using it to make faux banana bread.

  3. It’s been over 50 years since I left my birth home of Sydney and came to Canada. My childhood memories included lamingtons my mum would make as a special treat for my birthday and I wanted to thank you for this memory. Have been keto for 3 years now and I’ve never felt better. Thank you so much for sharing this post.

  4. Hi Gerri
    Love this & can’t wait to try them. Is there an Australian version or generic brand of Sukrin Melis that would do the job? Would Natvia or Liquid Stevia work?
    Thanks

    • Hi GypsyChick,

      Sukrin Melis is available for purchase in Australia, there is one supplier that isn’t too hard to find. If you don’t want to purchase it, you can use your preferred powdered sweetener.
