Today is Anzac Day down here in Aussie Land, so I just had to make a batch of Anzac Biscuits :)
Sorry about the bad picture quality - I just had time for a quick selfie with the Eye-Phone before the biscuits strangely started disappearing!!
Here is the recipe:
1 1/4 cups plain flour
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 cup dessicated coconut
150g butter, melted
2 tbspn golden syrup (or treacle)
1 tspn bicarb soda
Pre-heat oven to 180C
Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl
Melt butter in a small pan, along with the golden syrup. When butter is melted, take off the heat and add the bicarb soda. It will froth up and look really cool! Add this to the dry ingredients and mix well.
Roll tablespoons of mixture into balls and place on a baking tray that has been lightly greased (or just use a sheet of baking paper - that's what we lazy bears like to do). Flatten slightly and leave about 3cm between biscuits as they will grow a bit when you cook them.
Pop them into the oven and bake for about 12 minutes.
Take them out as soon as they start to look golden if you like them soft and chewy, or give them a couple more minutes till they are light brown if you prefer them a bit more on the crunchy side. I'm a soft and chewy bear :)
And then....just one thing left to do.....nom nom nom!
