Just when you thought Aus Day noms couldn’t get any more epic, they have somehow managed to. That’s right, the folks at Sunshine Sunshine Espresso have created an Aussie-as treat this year that’s going to be a sell-out for sure. May we introduce to you the Lamington Doughnut Delight. (Remember to breathe.)
Think thick and rich fresh cream, sweet and slightly sticky strawberry jam and throw in an Aussie legend (the humble Lamington) and you have yourself sorted for dessert on Aus Day. Hurrah!
This baby all starts with a warm and puffy cinnamon doughnut, then they carefully add a layer of strawberry jam, next comes the freshly baked Lamington smothered with another layer of thick fresh cream, before it’s finally topped off with the second half of the doughnut. YASSSS!
And just like icing on a cake, the decadence doesn’t stop there. This treat is finished off with a generous layer of chocolate icing and a dusting of coconut for texture. The masterstroke, however, is the addition of the jam filled injectable syringe to maximize the sweetness, naturally.
This delicious dessert is the stuff of dreams and we’re already obsessed.
We’re not quite sure what’s in the water up here on the Coast, but this year Straya’ Day desserts are off the hook. Only last week, the folks over at another fave of ours, Kenilworth Bakery, announced they were making a Tim Tam-infused doughnut for the long weekend. Drooollllll worthy.
Just remember, the Lamington Doughnut Delight is available for ONE day only. Miss out this year and you’ll regret it all year. Trust us, it tastes so amaze that the calories don’t even count.
