Darrell Lea partners with Muffin Break to recreate an Aussie classic

Darrell Lea Muffin BreakAustralian confectionery company Darrell Lea has partnered with cafe franchise Muffin Break to breathe new life into classic Aussie dessert, the lamington.

The “Lamington Rough” is a new twist on the old recipe, with the traditionally small, square cake transformed into a sponge muffin, coated in an outer layer of chocolate sauce and rolled in desiccated coconut, with a Darrell Lea Coconut Rough at its centre.

The new concept is also available as a limited-edition Lamington Hero Duffin, a mix of donut, muffin and lamington, with the crunch of a Darrell Lea Coconut Rough.

“The collaboration of two iconic Australian brands, Darrell Lea & Muffin Break is truly exciting for our franchise partners,” said Natalie Brennan, general manager of Muffin Break.

“Darrell Lea has been creating the finest chocolates for generations of Australians. For over 90 years, their reputation for quality and innovative tasty products remains high amongst Australian families. When coupled with the Muffin Break Muffin we see new customers visiting Muffin Break to try their beloved Darrell Lea chocolate.”
