ANZAC biscuits are staple fare in New Zealand’s wartime history. Back in the day, when we were lumped in with Australia’s army regiments, servicemens’ wives used to send these all over the world in care packages, because they kept so well in the post. Besides that, they’re delicious! Their bases are oatmeal and golden syrup, and they’re super crispy and easy to make.
1/2 cup of flour
1/2 cup of sugar
2/3 cup of coconut
3/4 cup of rolled oats
50 g of butter
1 T of golden syrup
1/2 tsp of baking soda
2 T of boiling water
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
Melt the butter and the golden syrup in the microwave or a saucepan. Fling it in with the dry ingredients. Mix well, form in to balls and flatten with a fork on baking trays. Bake for 14 minutes or until the bottoms are golden.
This recipe is from the Edmond’s Cookery Book.
Note ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.
