Plate Up. ANZAC Biscuits

I’m proud to be Australian, we’ve got it pretty good – sunshine, beaches, picturesque scenery, BBQ’s and, a personal favourite of mine, the humble ANZAC biscuit. It took me a while to find the perfect recipe for my perfect ANZAC, but here it is. I hope you feel honoured that I’m sharing it with you.

What you’ll need:
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup plain flour
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup shredded coconut
125g butter
2 tablespoons golden syrup
1 tablespoon water
½ teaspoon bicarb soda

What to do:
Preheat your oven to 170degrees Celsius. In a bowl, combine oats, sifted flour, sugar and coconut. In a saucepan, combine butter, water and golden syrup. Stir over medium heat until melted. Whisk in bicarb soda (the mixture will foam so act quickly!) and stir wet mixture into dry ingredients.

Place rounded dessert spoons of mixture onto a lined baking tray. Bake in the oven for 15mins for the perfect gooey centred biscuit (if you prefer your ANZACs crunchy, bake for 20mins). Be sure to let them sit on the tray for 5-10mins before you devour them because they will be very soft when fresh out of the oven. Enjoy with a cuppa! Makes 24.
