Subject: [R] Matrix operations in a list

I have matrices stored within a list like something as follows:

a <- list(matrix(rnorm(50), ncol=5), matrix(rnorm(50), ncol=5)) b <-
list(matrix(rnorm(50), nrow=5), matrix(rnorm(50), nrow=5))

I don't recall how to perform matrix multiplication on each list element
such that the result is a new list 

result <- list(a[[1]]%*%b[[1]], a[[2]]%*%b[[2]])

I think I'm close with mapply(), but I'm doing something silly

mapply('%*%', a,b)
