Anzac Biscuits...............

Hey there....well it's Anzac day here today so it seems only fitting that we baked up a batch of delicious Anzac biscuits.....


And even more fitting that I should share the recipe don't you think?.......


                                                                       Anzac Biscuits

4 1/2 ozs (130gms) butter
1 tblspn golden syrup
1 teaspn baking soda
2 tablspn boiling water
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup plain flour
1/2 cup sugar

1. Pre-heat your oven to about 170-180 degrees, depending on how hot your oven runs.

2. Melt the butter.

3. In a separate (large-ish) bowl put the golden syrup then add the baking soda and boiling water (just from a recently boiled kettle) and stir all together.

4. Add the melted butter to this and stir through.

5. Now fold in the flour (sifted), baking soda and sugar.

6. Grab about a teaspoon size of mixture and squish/roll into balls and place on a greased or lined baking tray. I press them down a tad too as I'm doing this.

7. Then use a fork to flatten them a little more if you want a crispier biscuit.

8. Pop in the oven for about 10 minutes. I think mine took a few more but it's always good to keep an eye on them.

9. Leave the biscuits on the baking tray to cool for a few more minutes then transfer them to a cooling rack.


10. Sit back and watch your family and friends devour them!!!.....


I love how these can be whipped up so quickly and without a beater or machine in sight.........


They also seem that tad bit healthier for the kids with the oats added....they certainly love them in their lunchboxes anyway........


Now go forth and bake..............

And I'd love to hear how you get on.....

Have a good one...............

  1. Thanks Janelle! I have to say after years of not being able to make really perfect ANZAC biscuits I now make ANZAC slice. A cheats approach I know but it works. Have a great day! S x

    1. Yes I must admit I make the slice version of this alot, easy and foolproof!?! x

  2. Enjoyed reading the recipes. Hope to try them tomorrow even though I have 2 kids coming for the day. May not have many biscuits left for Br. when he gets home from work though.
