Still reeling from the crunch and delicious taste of Anzac biscuits last Thursday and wanting more?
Then we have the right recipe to get your taste buds buzzing with these delicious treats.
These sweet biscuits are linked to the First World War, the Australian and the New Zealand army corps (ANZAC) and the landing in Gallipoli on the 25th of April 1915.
Anzac cookies were sold at public events to fund the military effort and were also sent to soldiers overseas by wives and women’s groups because the ingredients didn’t perish.
The source for the recipe was first discovered in early 1800 cookbooks from rolled oats and porridge meals popular in Scotland at the time. It wasn’t until 100 years later that the first “Anzac Biscuit” recipes were published in Australian cookbooks.
Now we can show you one of the best recipes currently available to create your mouth-watering biscuits…
· 2 Cups (180G) Rolled Oats
· 1 Cup (150G) Wholemeal Plain Flour
· 2/3 Cup (150G) Brown Sugar
· ¾ Cup (60G) Shredded Coconut
· 1/3 Cup (115G) Golden Syrup
· 125G Unsalted Butter
· 1 Teaspoon Bicarbonate of (Baking) Soda
· 2 Tablespoons Hot Water
1. Preheat your oven to 160 degrees (325F). Place the flour, sugar, coconut and oats in a bowl and mix with a whisk or spatula.
2. Place the butter and golden syrup in a saucepan and stir until melted (using low heat).
3. Combine the bicarbonate of soda with the water and add to the butter/syrup mixture. Pour into the oat mixture and mix well.
4. Place tablespoons of the mixture onto baking trays with lined, non-stick baking paper and flatten (around 5cm rounds), allowing plenty of room for the mixture chunks to spread along your tray evenly. Place your baking tray/s within your preheated oven.
5. Bake for roughly 10 minutes or until your mixture chunks go flat and turn a golden-brown colour. Take baking tray out of oven and allow for 5 minutes of cooling before transferring to your wire racks or tray boards.
There are also a variety of other methods to turn your delicious ANZAC biscuits into other desserts and treats including cakes, slices and tarts. The ANZAC biscuit recipe is easily adaptable, with the mixture able to be used for a range of snacks.
