Black Sesame Lamingtons is a nice flavor twist on the traditional Lamington.  Instead of dipping the cake in chocolate it’s replaced with a black sesame laced white chocolate and covered with black sesame seeds and coconut.

Happy National Lamington Day!

Yeah, I know food holidays are wack.  But whatever!  I have made lamingtons here before, but coated with matcha.  You can read about the backstory on lamingtons in this post.  For right now we are going to get into this Black Sesame Lamingtons recipe!

It’s a great way to use up stale cake, or cake you just have too much of and need a change of flavor and texture.

2 Tablespoons Black Sesame Milk

How To Serve and Store the Lamingtons

I actually like mine cold so after all the cakes are all dipped and coated I put them in the refrigerator to set for about 30 minutes.  These actually don’t last long, but if you do have some left over you can keep in the fridge for 3 days.

Recipe Notes

Use any stale vanilla cake you have.  If you do decide to make a vanilla cake from scratch, freeze the cake first before dipping.  Less crumbs, less mess!

I used Black Sesame Milk from Three Trees Organics, but you can use any milk to thin out the white chocolate mixture.
