Billy Tea Parties

We're organising get togethers but there's nothing at all to stop anyone reading this doing the same! Even if the local governments of your area ban campfires you can find a way to boil billy tea. :)

Billy Tea:


These small cakes were popularised by Queenslanders in the early 1900s. They are named after Lord Lamington, the Governor of Queensland from 1896 to 1901.
Ingredients for Making Lamingtons
3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup caster sugar
3 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup self-raising flour
1/2 cup plain flour
1/2 cup milk
chocolate icing
desicated coconut
How to Cook Lamingtons
Beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add two eggs, one at a time, and beat well.
Add vanilla and half the sifted flour. Mix well. Add milk, the remaining flour and the third egg, and mix until smooth.
Place in a well-greased lamington tin or baking dish and bake for 30 minutes in a preheated moderate to slow oven. Cool and cut into squares about 5cm.
Spear each square on a carving fork, dip in chocolate icing, drain off excess, and toss in desiccated coconut.

Whatever party you organise, be sure and fly the Eureka Flag, Australia's only REAL flag by for and with the people! :)
