Anzac Day is commemorated on April 25 each year. I do realise that it is now the end of May. However this were made at the request of my grandmother. She attends a weekly seniors day each Thursday. One of the planned activities was to make these biscuits. She loved them so much, she asked that I make it. She even asked the organisers to print her a copy of the recipe. Unable to deny my grandmothers request, I present you with Anzac Biscuits which can be enjoyed any time of the year! The recipe was published on Taste’s website.
- 1 1/4 cups plain flour
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup caster sugar
- 3/4 cup desiccated coconut
- 2 tablespoons golden syrup or treacle
- 150g unsalted butter, chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda
1. Preheat oven to 170°C.
2. Place the flour, oats, sugar and coconut in a large bowl and stir to combine.
3.In a small saucepan place the golden syrup and butter and stir over low heat until the butter has fully melted. Mix the bicarb soda with 1 1/2 tablespoons water and add to the golden syrup mixture. It will bubble whilst you are stirring together so remove from the heat.
5. Pour into the dry ingredients and mix together until fully combined.
6. Roll tablespoonfuls of mixture into balls and place on baking trays lined with non stick baking paper, pressing down on the tops to flatten slightly.
7. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown.
