Paleo Lamington cupcakes

Simple and delicious coconut lover’s cupcake.

Traditional Lamingtons are little square sponge cakes coated in chocolate and rolled in coconut. They’re a much loved Australian treat but often considered too fiddly to make at home. This cupcake version might not look like the real deal, but they allow you to enjoy vanilla cake, chocolate and coconut without the work.

We’ve switched out the wheat, sugar and dairy for more nutritious ingredients and made them Paleo. The right combination of a trio of gluten and grain-free flours mixed just right delivers the perfect cupcake. A mix of homemade almond flour, homemade coconut flour and tapioca flour produces a heavenly sponge texture that even non-paleo peeps are sure to luv.

Nothing could be easier than tossing everything into a blender jug all at once!  So quick, so simple and no mess. Whisking cake batter in the Vibe blender System makes non-traditional baking ingredients finer and more aerated.

Creating a Paleo version gave us the excuse to go nuts on everything coconut. In addition to coconut flour, we’ve used coconut milk, coconut oil and coconut sugar. The pairing of chocolate and coconut is well appreciated in the Luvele kitchen. If you fall for this simplified take on the famous Lamington in cupcake form, be sure to check out our bounty bars and deconstructed chocolate and coconut tiramisu.
