Who Invented the Lamington Cake? There are many different stories.

First of all, it is discussed whether the Lamingtons were first made in Australia or New Zealand. The most popular story I’ve read on the subject mentioned Lord Lamington, who was British Governor of Queensland in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

However, while the story is fun to read, the main thing remains that the modern recipe comes from either New Zealand or Australia is one of the most popular foods these countries have to offer.
