I am not sure exactly why, but my baking of Anzac biscuits can be a bit hit or miss. They always taste nice, but the exact texture of the biscuit can vary with each batch. It could possibly due to my lovely helpers and that the measurements may not always be perfect! But there is never any complaints and they are eaten quite readily.
The photo above shows my preschooler making everyone milk and biscuits for afternoon tea. We had made the biscuits together when the other kids were at school and he was very proud to serve them up to his siblings! As Anzac day approaches on 25th April, I thought it the perfect time to post this recipe.
Anzac Biscuits Recipe
- 1 cup plain flour
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 0.5 cup desiccated coconut
- 125 grams butter
- 2 tablespoons golden syrup
- 1 tablespoon water
- 0.5 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
Sometimes for a change, I will use self raising flour instead of the plain flour. It makes a lighter style biscuit.
- Preheat oven to a low-med temperature (approx 170).
- In a medium bowl, sift flour
- Add sugar, rolled oats and coconut.
- On a low heat, melt the butter in a saucepan.
- Once melted add the golden syrup and water.
- Remove from heat and then add the bicarb and stir.
- Quickly add the liquid to the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
- Using approx 1.5 tablespoons of the mixture, make balls and lightly press onto a greased tray.
- Bake for about 15 minutes.
- Allow to sit on try to cool for 5 minutes, as biscuits will harden when cool.
