With Australia Day coming up, I decided to create a dog-friendly, Aussie classic and beloved cake – The Lamington. Named after the Governor of Queensland, Lord Lamington, this Australian culinary icon is believed to have been created through an accident at work. Lord Lamington’s maid-servant was working at the Government House in Brisbane when she accidentally dropped the Governor’s favourite sponge cake into some melted chocolate. Lord Lamington was not a person of wasteful habits and suggested that it be dipped in coconut to cover the chocolate and avoid messy fingers. Lord Lamington devoured this new taste sensation with great delight and the maid-servant’s error was proclaimed a magnificent success by all!

We added our homemade dog-friendly Goji Berry Jam. Goji berries are a great source of antioxidants (Vit A and C), fibre and iron.
1. In a bowl, mix peanut butter, coconut flour and chia seeds well. Divide mixture to three equal parts and roll into logs. Freeze for about 30 minutes or until they’re firm and not sticky.
2. In a small saucepan, melt carob buttons and coconut oil. Set aside.
3. Take out the mixture and cut each log to 3 – 4 equal parts. Coat with the melted carob and desiccated coconut.
4. Store in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks or freeze for a few months. You can keep them at room temperature for a few days if it’s not too warm.

If you like what I create, you can now buy Bowie a treat (or two) and support a good cause too! — every treat (aka $$) will go to a dog rescue/charity/organisation.
Every month we will choose a charity that’s close to our heart, and all the $$ made during that month (minus BuyMeaCoffee fee) will be donated to the chosen dog rescue/organisation. Our May Dog Rescue is Starting Over Dog Rescue. Much love, Riesa & Bowie xx
