Lamington Jaffle

Lamington Jaffle

As a big fan of lamingtons, it was only a matter of time before I found a camping version – it came in the form of a jaffle.

Being cooked in a jaffle iron, also known as a pie iron, this is a very easy recipe making it accessible to any camper.

When selecting the chocolate cake, something a little firmer tends to be easier to cook, however softer sponge cakes create a more delicate and lighter dessert.
