125gm butter
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 cups SR Flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup milk (approx)
1 tsp vanilla essence

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift flour and salt. Add alternately with milk to mixture. Add vanilla essence. Blend well, but do not overbeat. 

Add a little more milk if necessary, to form a soft dropping consistency. Spread evenly in a greased and lined (make sure the baking paper extends up the sides) 7lt rectangular slow cooker. Place tea towel under lid and cook on high for 1.5hrs. 

Test readiness with a skewer. Then remove from sc by lifting baking paper and leave to cool completely on cake rack.

Vanilla Icing ingredients:
3 cups icing sugar
50gm butter, softened
125mls hot water
1 tsp vanilla essence
100's & 1000's to coat lamingtons

Sift icing sugar into a bowl and add softened butter. Pour hot water and vanilla over the butter to melt. Stir until smooth. Spread the 100's & 1000's into another bowl/plate. Use two forks to carefully dip a lamington in the icing mixture to coat. 

Tap forks on side of bowl to remove any excess icing. Then carefully roll in 100's & 1000's, patting to coat. Place on wire rack or cutting board to set. Repeat with remaining lamingtons, icing mixture and 100's & 1000's.
