Today being Anzac Day, I baked some Anzac biscuits. This recipe is from my mother-in-law.
Anzac Biscuit recipe
1 cup each of rolled oats, shredded coconut, sugar, and plain flour.
125g of butter
1 tablespoon of golden syrup
1 teaspoon of bi-carb soda
2-3 tablespoons of water
Melt the butter, golden syrup, bi-carb soda and 1 tablespoon of water on the stove. Put the other ingredients, excluding the water, in a large bowl. Mix butter mixture with the dry ingredients, and add the rest of the water. Add more if required to get it to stick together. Take about a tablespoon amount of the mixture, and press into a ball, place on a greased tray, and flatten into a biscuit shape. My mother in law uses the back of a spoon to do this, I find it easier to just use my fingers. Bake in a 180 degree oven for 15 minutes. Once out of the oven, let them sit on the tray for only a minute, then lay them onto baking paper on a cooling rack. Now if you're the sort who like your Anzacs chewy, then bake for less time.
I'm a fan of chewy Anzacs - but ended up baking them hard. What sort are are? Do you like them chewy or soft?
