ANZAC Biscuits

This is an extra post but it is appropriate to share it this morning. Tonight I will share all the ANZAC Day messages I have gathered  but this morning I thought it would be good to share my ANZAC biscuit recipe, which is probably much the same as everyone else's recipe.  I always bake ANZAC Biscuits on or around ANZAC Day.  I have decided that this year I will be baking them while I watch the march on TV.  I vacuum seal them and send them to friends whenever I get the chance so it seems fitting to bake them on ANZAC Day to send to my deployed friends, afterall is that not how the recipe became so popular?

Why don't you gather your Golden Syrup, coconut and oats and bake a batch yourself.  


ANZAC BISCUITS

2 cup rolled oats
2 ¼ cup plain flour
2 cup sugar
1 ½  cup coconut
250g butter
4 tabsp golden syrup
1 teasp bicarb soda
2 tabsp boiling water
1 egg


Combine oats, flour, sugar and coconut.  Combine butter and golden syrup, stir over gentle heat til melted (or zap in a microwave in in 30sec spurts a special coffee mug fro Tarin Kowt like I do but put a plate on top to avoid splatter).  Mix the bicarb soda with boiling water, add to melted butter mixture.  Be careful as it is likely to react and bubble over so best to do this over the bowl.  Stir in dry ingredients with lightly beaten egg.  Place rounded teaspoons of mix onto trays, allow room for spreading.  Cook in a slow oven 20 minutes.  Loosen while warm, then cool on racks.

NOTE - this makes a big batch - around 72 biscuits - and I have a special large ANZAC Biscuits mixing bowl.    

Till next time...............keep spreading the word and happy baking!  JMxxx
