A recipe in Memory of Grandma


For all you non-aussies out there that really need a taste of the Good Life ...
Here's the recipe for

Anzac Biscuits

1 cup of rolled oats (porridge oats)

1 cup of Plain flour (all purpose flour)

1 cup of Brown sugar (the fine stuff)

1/2 cup of descicated coconut (not shredded)

125 grams of Butter (1/2 pound)

2 tablespoons of Golden syrup (Cockey's Joy) (the more you put in the better - I put about 4 tablespoons in)

1 Tablespoon of water

1/2 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda


1. combine all dry ingredients in Big bowl.

2. combine butter, syrup and water in a medium saucepan, stir constantly over medium heat until butter melted. Stir in soda ( this will make the mixture grow & bubble)

3. quickly mix in saucepan mix into dry mix.

4. place walnut sized balls onto lightly greased oven trays, about 5cm (2 inches) apart (they will spread).

5. bake in Moderate oven (160 degrees Celsius or 325 fahrenheit) for 20 minutes or until golden brown and slightly firm.

6. Use spatula or egg flip to loosen biscuits on trays and cool on the trays.

7. this recipe usually makes about 2 dozen.

I usually double the batch because they get eaten quick :)

If you want you can press mix into slice pan and make Anzac Slice!

Yummy yum Yum

My Grandma used candied Honey instead of Golden syrup, but because of the drought Honey isnt so cheap anymore.

Grandmas Anzacs were Famous! :)
