To commemorate this significant day of history, I thought I would share this iconic recipe. Anzac biscuits originated in World War 1. It was claimed that wives of the soldiers sent this sweet crispy biscuits to their loved ones serving in war. The combined ingredients don't spoil easily and stay fresh during naval transport.
Ingredients: 1 cup desiccated coconut
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup plain flour
1/2 cup butter
3 Tbs golden syrup
1/2 Tsp bicarb soda
Preheat oven to 180degrees Celcius(160 fan forced). Combine coconut, brown sugar, rolled oats, and flour in a mixing bowl. Melt butter and golden syrup in a large saucepan over low heat. Mix bicarb soda with boiling water and stir into melted mixture, and then pour into the centre of the dry ingredients. Mix to a moist but firm consistency.
Create a small rounded teaspoons of mixture and place it on greased biscuit tray or you can use baking paper. Pressed the mixture with a fork to flatten the ball.
Bake for 15 minutes, cool on a wire rack. You can store them in an airtight container(if there's any leftovers).
Thank you all for stopping by. Wishing everyone a wonderful week.
This teapot tells a lot of history, it belonged to my husband's grandad which was handed down to his mum and now in his care. There's nothing like sipping a sweet brew of history right under your nose.
I've cut sprigs of rosemary from the garden to make a little boquet of remembrance.
