There’s nothing quite like freshly baked Anzac biscuits, especially around that time of the year we commemorate the huge sacrifice made by the many thousands of Australian and New Zealand soldiers in service to our country and beliefs.
We made the above vid in the hope that everyone who watches it has a go at making them. They’re so easy yet so delicious!
Wikipedia tells us how Anzac bikkies came about:
Rather than being sent to the front lines for the soldiers to eat as some people think, ANZAC biscuits were commonly eaten at galas, fetes and other public events such as parades, where they were sold to raise money to support the war effort.
If you are interested in giving them a go, here’s the recipe.
- 1 cup plain flour
- 3/4 cup caster sugar
- 1 & 1/2 cups rolled oats
- 1 cup moist coconut flakes
- 125g melted butter
- 1/4 cup golden syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
- 1 tablespoon boiling water
Preheat oven to 180C, and line two trays with baking paper
Combine flour, sugar, oats and coconut in a bowl. Mix together and make a well in the centre. Pour in the butter and the golden syrup.
Combine the boiling water and bicarb of soda, then add to the mix.
Stir the mix with a spoon until well combined.
Take Tablespoons of the mixture and roll into balls. Place eacb ball on the baking trays, about 5cm apart. Flatten each ball slightly with a fork, then place in the hot oven.
Bake for 12 minutes, or until golden brown.
Leave to cool on trays until ready to eat.
