A lamington is a sponge cake that is covered in chocolate and coconut. This Australian icon ranks right up there with Pavlova and Vegemite. It is believed to be invented by accident over 100 years ago. Charles Wallace Alexander Napier Cochrane-Baillie (Lord Lamington) has been credited with the discovery of the lamington. The maid for Lord Lamington (eighth governor of Queensland) accidently dropped a sponge cake in some melted chocolate. So that the sponge cake would not be messy, they added coconut. The result was a delicious new invention, named after Lord Lamington.
