It’s ANZAC Day today in Australia – the day we remember the troops of the Australia New Zealand Army Corp who lost their lives at Gallipoli in World War I.
To help mark the event, we thought we’d bake some traditional Anzac biscuits (or cookies, for American readers.)
We found this simple recipe at www.bestrecipes.com.au, and it was a winner!
1 cup plain flour
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup coconut
2 tbs golden syrup
1 tbs water
1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda
1. Sift the flour into a bowl. Add the sugar, rolled oats and coconut.
2. Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the golden syrup and water.
3. Stir the bicarb soda into the liquid mixture.
4. Add the liquid to the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
5. Place walnut-sized balls of mixture on a greased tray and bake at 175 degrees Celsius (347 F) for 15-20 minutes.
6. Biscuits will harden when cool.
The kids loved this!
Some for the measuring spoon…
And some for me…
Mix it up, baby!
Ready for the oven!
Mmmmm, yum!! These tasted even better than they looked. Just the right amount of moist softness in the middle. I had four for lunch. (Sssshhh…. don’t tell!)
