So, total fluff for this evening - do you prefer strawberry or raspberry jam as the filling for your lamington?

The fancy kind - jam & cream filled.

DH & I are having a debate over which it is.

If I was inclined to put jam in lamingtons, I would probably do raspberry jam, but I would warm and strain to remove as many seeds as I could first.

So I had to google because I am bored and it’s Friday night.

The recipes say strawberry and I agree.

I only like strained raspberry jam though, so that colours my answer!!

But I still think jam in lamingtons is weird!!

My preference is seedless raspberry jam. Such a pain to make, I usually just buy seedless.

Definitely no jam. That's cruel and unusual punishment for a good lamington.

You mean when they partially slice it open, stuff it with whipped cream and then put a tiny cherry like dab on top? It's always been raspberry from what I remember.

No jam ideally. Strained raspberry if you must.

I’ve given up making my own. I can not ice them without the cake crumbling and turning into a mess.

A lamington, by design, is perfect as is. No jam, no cream. Just a cuppa to wash it down.

I hate coconut so don’t really like Lamingtons.

If I had to eat one I’d say raspberry jam to kill the coconut taste.

Chantilly cream is better.

Any jam as long as there aren’t any chunks of fruit. Has to be smooth.

Definitely jam, ideally that fake jam that's in donuts.

I wish that was sold separately I'd eat it straight yum.

I don’t make only buy.
Strawberry for in it. Definitely needs to be the seedless variety.

Family requests raspberry jelly for lamington trifle I make though. (I’m not a trifle fan so it doesn’t matter to me)

You’re welcome

You can also buy it by the bucket load from bakers supply stores.
I used to work in woolies and they had buckets of the stuff (back when supermarket bakeries were actual bakeries)

:)  You can buy it in 25kg buckets from foodservice wholesalers.

Water, sugar, colouring, flavour, thickener.  You could make it yourself, you know.
