Australia: Lamington

It’s said that the Australian dessert called lamington was created when Lord Lamington’s maid accidentally dropped some sponge cake in chocolate icing and dipped it in coconut. Whatever its true origins, the cake is a true Australian icon, so much so that there’s a designated National Lamington Day each July.
