I am sharing with you the Anzac Biscuit recipe that I promised on Instagram yesterday, you can follow me
on Instagram, this is where I share my studio photos and creative work, I have a personal account for my family & everyday photos.
Anzac Day is a day of remembrance in Australia, we spend the day giving our thanks to those that have served and died in all wars, conflicts and peace keeping operations. I give thanks to my Nan & Pop who both served for our country. I also give thanks to my Opa & Oma who made the huge sacrifice to move here from a war torn Europe. To leave their family behind & come to Australia to live, it must have been hard & I imagine not a decision made lightly.
Every year around Anzac Day I bake these biscuits, my Nan loved making these & so I do it as part of my remembrance to her & for my girls now that she has passed on, like many other Australians do at this time.
1 cup of rolled oats
1 cup of plain flour
2/3 cup of brown sugar
2/3 cup of desiccated coconut
125g of butter, chopped
2 tablespoons of golden syrup
1/2 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
Preheat oven to 160C/140C fan forced. Line baking trays with baking paper.
Combine oats, flour, sugar and coconut in a large bowl. Place butter, syrup and 2 tablespoons cold water in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until butter has melted. Stir in bicarb soda. Stir butter mixture into oat mixture.
Roll level tablespoons of mixture into balls. Place on trays, 5cm apart. Flatten slightly with fork. Bake fore 10 to 12 minutes or until light golden. Stand on trays for 5 minutes. Transfer to wire rack to cool. Serve.
