ANZAC BiscuitsIngredients: 2 tablespoons water 2 tablespoons golden syrup 65g butter 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 cup self-raising flour 1 cup sugar 1 cup coconut 1 cup rolled oats Put water, golden syrup and butter in saucepan and bring to boil. Add baking soda – this will froth. Pour over flour, sugar, coconut and rolled oats while hot and mix well. On a baking tray, place walnut sized balls of mixture at least 6cm apart from each other. Bake in oven at 140°C/285°F for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown. This one is dedicated to all the ANZAC’s out there. For more information check out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anzac_Day The ANZAC biscuit is claimed to have been sent to Australian and New Zealand soldiers serving in World War 1 from their wives as it doesn’t easily spoil and kept well during naval transportation. Since then, the ANZAC biscuit is synonymous with ANZAC Day. On a side note – this is also one of my hubby’s favourite biscuits… so HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
