Middle layer

  • 2 cups macadamia butter*
  • 1 3/4 cups icing sugar
  • 4 tbsp bush honey
  • 2 tbsp milk


  • 200 g milk chocolate
  • 1/2 cup unsalted macadamia nuts extra, toasted and finely chopped


  • Preheat oven to 160°C fan forced. Grease and line a 3cm-deep, 20cm x 30cm (base) lamington tin.
