Happy Birthday, Lamington Fingers (gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, Low fodmap, paleo)

Yesterday was 29th birthday, the final year of my twenties :-(. I spent the day with my beautiful kiddies then topped it off by enjoying a lovely dinner with the family. And of course a birthday cake or a Lamington finger or two, as i choose this for my Birthday cake this year. Im not real big on chocolate cakes.


What you’ll need
Sponge cake
3 eggs free range
1/2 cup cornflour (tapioca flour if Paleo)
3/4 cup almond meal
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla powder
2/3 cup macadamia oil
4 tbls rice malt syrup

Chocolate Sauce
2 tbls coconut oil softened
2 tbs cacao powder
2 tbls rice malt syrup
2-3 tbls almond milk
Desiccated coconut

Raspberry Jam
1/3 cup frozen raspberries thawed
2 tbl chia seeds
2 tsp rice malt syrup


  • Pre heat oven to 160
  • Combine macadamia oil and rice malt syrup in a bowl and whisk until well mixed set aside
  • Measure out corn flour, almond meal, baking powder and vanilla in a bowl, using a fork stir until combined
  • Using electric beaters on high, beat the eggs for 5 mins until thick and foamy
  • Gradually add the oil mixture while still beating
  • Gently fold the flour mixture in with a spatular until combined
  • Pour into a line square 22cm tin
  • Bake for 20 mins or until cooked in the middle
  • Set aside to cool completely
  • Once cool trim the edges and gently slice the sponge in half  for the jam

Raspberry Jam

  • Blend the thawed raspberries i just used a hand held blender
  • Add the chia seeds and rice malt and stir
  • Let the mixture sit for about 20 mins to thicken
  • Then spread on the sponge cake
  • I didn’t spread enough on mine so i slapped some jam on while i was eating the lamington yummo

Chocolate Sauce

  • Soften the coconut oil in the microwave
  • Add the cacao powder, rice malt syrup and almond milk and gently whisk or stir to remove any lumps
  • Cut the sponge into finger size pieces and spread the chocolate sauce on each side
  • Roll on a plate of desiccated coconut to cover
  • A little fiddley but very tasty


These babies didn’t long pretty much all gone on the night, store in an air tight container in the fridge
