Bern the Chef: Anzac Biscuit Recipe
I have used the Country Women's Association recipe for years.
I'm one of 7 children, and my mother baked our afternoon teas every single day. There was always a double batch of these at least once a week. And they would be lucky to last a couple of days, unless they were a little on the hard/burnt side. Which, if you are watching 7 siblings at once, is bound to happen!
By the time I was 10, I had served my apprenticeship of measuring, mixing & rolling balls. I was the family weekend baker of these as well as cupcakes, slice & golden syrup dumplings.
150g (1 cup) plain flour
220g (1 cup) sugar
100g (1 cup) rolled oats
90g (1 cup) desiccated coconut
1 tablespoon golden syrup or treacle
2 tablespoons boiling water
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius and lightly grease two baking trays. Combine the flour in a bowl with the sugar, rolled oats and coconut. Melt the butter in a saucepan with the golden syrup over medium heat. Combine the boiling water with the bicarbonate of soda and stir to dissolve. Add to the butter mixture and mix well, then stir into the dry ingredients until thoroughly combined. Drop teaspoons of the mixture onto the trays, allowing room for spreading.
Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
Allow to cool on the tray for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
