It can't be an Anzac biscuit without golden syrup! And coconut is traditional as well.

1 cup plain flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup coconut
125g butter
1 tblsp treacle or golden syrup
2 tblsp boiling water
1 tsp bicarb soda

Melt the butter, add the syrup (or treacle), water and soda.
Combine the flour, sugar, oats and coconut and add to the butter/syrup mixture.
Drop spoonfuls onto a greased baking tray, leaving lots of room for the biscuits to spread.
Bake in moderate oven for 10-15 minutes.

Hey Haggis, thanks for adding your two cents! To explain my recipe, no coconut is because of allergies in the family, I sometimes add it in if the allergic ones are away. And the honey we have found makes a softer biscuit than the golden syrup, and it is easier to find in most places. I may try your version.

No! Golden syrup isn't even like our corn syrup. It has a unique buttery flavor. No substitutes in the U.S.

Haggis, my recipe is almost identical to yours.


ANZAC BISCUITS

1 cup rolled oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
desiccated coconut
1 stick butter
1 tablespoon golden syrup
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoon boiling water

PREHEAT the oven to 300 degrees.

COMBINE the oats, sifted flour, sugar, and coconut in a large bowl.

COMBINE the butter and golden syrup in a pan, stir over low heat until the butter is melted.

COMBINE the soda and water; add to the butter mixture, then stir into the dry ingredients immediately.

ROLL mixture into 1-inch balls and place on parchment paper lined cookie sheets about 2 inches apart. Lightly flatten each ball.

BAKE for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove the cookies from the sheets and cool on racks. Store in tightly covered container.

Thats a good enough reason as any not to include coconut Alix :P.

Golden syrup really does have a unique flavour, havent tasted anything quite like it. Also due to the close ties in traditional cooking between Australia and Britain alot of our baking uses golden syrup. But also the availability would be a problem, though it is very common here. You might have some luck looking for golden syrup under the names of 'cane juice', 'sugar cane syrup' or 'light treacle' according to www.foodsubs.com

Sometimes I am tempted to divide the batch in half and bake one half properly until crisp, and the other half undercook slightly so they are soft and chewy.

Y'know, Rogers is who makes our golden syrup. I never realized it wasn't widely available in the US.

Do you not have Golden Cane Syrup there at all? I think this stuff is MADE in the US, why wouldn't you be able to buy it there? Weird.

OK, I just checked, its made in BC, forget everything I just said. LOL

Alix, I think it depends on the market area. Here I can find it at a number of different stores ... independents and chains like Cost Plus World Market.
