ANZAC Buscuits

ANZAC biscuits are a traditional Australian biscuit which were sent to Australian and New Zealand troops during World War 1. The original ANZAC biscuit recipe used no eggs so the biscuits would not spoil on the long journey to the front lines of Gallipoli. Give the kids a history lesson with this batch of traditional bikkies.

Ingredients (makes 24)

1 cup (150g) plain flour
1 cup (90g) rolled oats
1 cup (85g) coconut
3/4 cup (155g) brown sugar
125g butter
2 tbs water
2 tbs golden syrup
1 tsp salt
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda


1. Preheat the oven to 175°C. Line two baking trays with non-stick baking paper. Sift the flour into a large bowl. Add the oats, coconut, salt and brown sugar.
2. 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.
3. Pour the butter mixture into the flour mixture and stir until combined.
4. Drop tablespoons pieces of the dough on the non-stick baking paper and then press down with the back of a fork to flatten. Place on the trays, about 5cm apart.
5. Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
6. Set aside on the trays for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely allowing the biscuits to harden.
