Someone pinch me. I just made these, and I love them! It's hard to eat just six. I am going to make these often. Very quick and easy with great results!

Thank you Alix.

You forgot the coconut!

Just realized you didn't use golden syrup either. Not really Anzac Biscuits.

I definitely agree with Hanart. Your biscuits might be yummy, but they are absolutely NOT genuine Anzac biscuits. Do not substitute anything else for the golden syrup - it's what gives them their unique flavour. And the coconut is essential, too.

Here's the Dinkum Article! (real thing.) They were originally developed back in 1915 for the Aussie soldiers at Gallipoli, because they kept and transported well. Traditionally, they should be a bit rounded and softish, but I prefer mine very crisp, so I flatten them a lot. They spread quite a bit when flattened.

The bicarbonate of soda should be fresh. The butter/syrup mixture should really froth up when the bicarb is added.

Anzac Biscuits

1/2 cup sugar

1 cup rolled oats

125g butter

1 tablespoon golden syrup

1 cup coconut

1 cup flour

1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

1 tablespoon boiling water



Combine dry ingredients. Gently melt butter and syrup together, stir bicarbonate of soda into the water, then add it to the butter and syrup mixture. Pour all into dry ingredients, mix well. Roll into small balls, then flatten slightly, and place onto a baking tray (or drop by teaspoonfuls), leaving room for spreading. Bake at 160C (325F) for 20 minutes.

MJ, glad you like them. They are way quick and easy, and I can't stop at six either!

OK daisy, scroll back in the thread and read why this recipe has been edited (both the coconut and the golden syrup). You will also find other versions of the recipe.

LMAO, you folks are passionate about your cookies!

Just to stir the pot, I am going to say that I have tried several versions of this cookie and don't find that the golden syrup makes a big flavour difference. *alix runs away quickly as HanArt and daisy chase her with a wooden spoon*

Hey, it's your choice, but you're not making Anzac Biscuits.

Be like making chocolate chip cookies without the chocolate, oatmeal cookies without the oatmeal, a banana split without bananas, grilled cheese sandwich without the cheese, etc., etc.

Were they in a tin?

Read about this cause in the Parade section last Sunday.

Thanks for the link HanArt. They weren't in a tin though. They were in a foil like bag.

One day I went to post some of my Nana's recipes and realised how many of them have Golden Syrup.
