Fresh Cherry Lamingtons


  • 300ml cream
  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 2/3 cup caster sugar, 1/3 cup caster sugar, extra
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 500g fresh cherries, pitted
  • 300g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup shredded coconut



1. Bring cream and milk to the boil in a small pan. Remove from heat.

2. Beat yolks, sugar and vanilla together until thick and pale. Whisk in warm milk. Return to clean pan and stir over medium-low heat until a custard forms. Cover and chill for 30 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, roughly chop cherries and place into a pan with extra sugar and 1/4 cup water. Stir over medium heat to dissolve sugar. Simmer for 8-10 minutes or until syrupy. Cool.

4. Combine ice-cream base with half the cherry mixture. Line a 15cm square cake pan with a double layer of plastic. Pour in ice-cream mixture, cover, and freeze overnight.

5. Remove ice-cream from pan and, using a large warm knife, cut into 4cm blocks and return to freezer.

6. Melt chocolate until smooth. Stir in oil until smooth. Place coconut into a shallow bowl.

7. Using 2 forks, and working quickly, dip each ice-cream block into chocolate to coat and sprinkle with coconut. Return to freezer until ready to serve. Serve with remaining cherry sauce.
