Anzac Biscuits
Recipe type: Biscuits
Cuisine: Australasian
Serves: About 15 large biscuits
  • 100g (3.5 oz) butter
  • 2 Tbsp Golden Syrup
  • 1/2 cup raw sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 Tbsp boiling water
  • 1/2 cup plain flour (I used a gluten-free blend)
  • 1/2 cup dessicated coconut
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats (not instant oats)
  1. Pre-heat oven to 180°C (360°F). Grease or line 2 baking trays.
  2. In a large saucepan melt butter with Golden Syrup and raw sugar over a low heat.
  3. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. Dissolve baking soda in water, add to saucepan and stir until thoroughly mixed (the mixture will froth up and lighten).
  5. Add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
  6. Put tablespoonfuls of mixture (don't make them more than a tablespoon or they'll be huge!) onto a baking tray allowing enough room for them to spread, and flatten gently with a fork (you probably don't even need to do this, as they flatten out on their own anyway).
  7. Bake for approximately 10-12 mins or until golden. Let them cool completely on a wire rack - they will harden once they have cooled.
