I thought I would get my Aussie-Aussie-Aussie on come January 26th and try my hand at Anzac Biscuits. Never tried them before and they definitely seem like an icon biscuit. I googled for a recipe and my preference with biscuits is always for something chewy. Brown sugar seems the key to a chewy biscuit so when I stumbled across the the recipe below on ww.taste.com.au I thought it was definitely worth giving a go! But 24 biscuits didn’t seem like enough so I doubled the recipe….. so unless your biscuit tin would be
- 1 cup (150g) plain flour
- 1 cup (90g) rolled oats
- 1 cup (85g) coconut
- 3/4 cup (155g) brown sugar
- 125g butter
- 2 tbs golden syrup
- 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
Preheat the oven to 160°C. Line two baking trays with non-stick baking paper. Sift the flour into a large bowl. Stir in the oats, coconut and brown sugar.
Put the butter, golden syrup and 2 tbs water in a small saucepan. Stir over a medium heat until melted. Stir in the bicarbonate of soda.
Pour the butter mixture into the flour mixture and stir until combined.
Roll level tablespoons of mixture into balls. Place on the trays, about 5cm apart.
Press with a fork to flatten slightly. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
Set aside on the trays for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack so it cools completely
