lamington /’læmɪŋtən/   

(countable noun) Usage note: This is the usual term used by all speakers.

A small square or rectangular cake usually made of plain cake coated in chocolate icing and covered in desiccated (dried) coconut.

Example: It was a little bit difficult to make lamingtons . The chocolate wouldn't sit on the sponge, the chocolate and the coconut were too separate and wouldn't stick together. (http://www.iia.edu.au/newsletter/IIA%20Newsletter.htm)
