Home Baking: ANZAC Bikkies!

We may not have the ANZAC Day Dawn Service at Kranji this year, but we still have ANZAC biscuits. Here’s a simple but yummy receipe from Edmond’s cook book – an iconic fixture of Kiwi homes around the world.

Ingredients:
½ cup standard flour
¹⁄3 cup sugar
²⁄₃ cup finely chopped
coconut
¾ cup rolled oats
50g butter
1 tbsp golden syrup
½ tsp baking soda
2 tbsp boiling water

Method:
1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
2. Mix together flour, sugar, coconut and rolled oats.
3. Melt butter and golden syrup. Dissolve baking soda in the boiling water and add to butter and golden syrup. Stir butter mixture into the dry ingredients.
4. Place level tablespoons of mixture onto cold greased trays and flatten with a fork. These don’t spread as they bake so you can place them close together.
5. Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden. Leave on the tray for 5 minutes then place on a wire rack to cool.
