Okay get cooking-ANZAC Biscuits/Slice

Ok for the girls who commented and anyone else who stops by...... here is the ANZAC recipe......let me know if you have ago and if you love it like we do......
1 cup plain flour (1/2 the time i use SR flour it works fine)
1 cup rolled oats (regular oatmeal) uncooked
1 cup desiccated coconut
1 cup brown sugar (firmly packed)

125 grams butter
2 tabsp golden syrup 

1 teasp bicarbonate of soda
2 tabsp boiling water

Combine the flour, oats, coconut and brown sugar in a bowl.
Melt the butter and Golden Syrup in a saucepan over a low heat.
Mix the bicarbonate of soda with the water and add to the butter and Golden Syrup.
Pour the liquids into the dry ingredients and mix well.

I place this in a slice tray and press into the tin.....but if you want biscuits get spoons full of mixture and roll into a ball about the size of a walnut shell, onto a greased tray leaving as much space between balls to allow for spreading.
Bake in a moderate oven, 180C / 350F, for 15-20 minutes (until browned)

I you make it as a slice cut up in tray while it is still half warm.

(Tabsp 20mls and teasp 5mls)

Found this info on the net.............

Not all tablespoons are the same. The Australian tablespoon is 20 ml; the British tablespoon is 17.7 ml. In most Canadian recipes the tablespoon is 15 ml while the American tablespoon is actually 14.2 ml.

If you have any thoughts of keeping the biscuits for any length of time I suggest you keep them in a padlocked container!
Bye for now..............


  1. Yum! Anzac Biscuits are our favourites, I've filed this one away to try really soon. Thank you for sharing!

  2. Yummmmmm, I have a jar of golden syrup here, dd brought it over with her, it gets treated like liquid gold. Thanks for the recipe.

  3. Hmm - I would have thought a tablespoon was a tablespoon. My tablespoon does say 15 mls. A teaspoon is 5 mls here. So we have 3 tsps in a tablespoon. How much is 125 grams of butter. Is that the same as 125 mls? Which is 1/2 cup. Canada is still hanging on to some old Imperial measures - LOL

  4. Thank you for this recipe. I am going to try this as I have been looking for a recipe for this.

  5. Thanks for the recipe. I made them this morning and they are gorgeous ! I've had 2 so far and am going to have another with a cup of tea sewing some hexagone in bed - bliss !

  6. Just reading through the list of ingredients I already know I'm going to love these.
    I'm going to make them tomorrow.
    Thanks for taking the time to post the recipe.


  7. These look fantastic. Am going to give them a try today. Love to see and try out receipes from fellow bloggers.

  8. Great recipe. Daughter (aged 11 & 6) made this yeaterday & it is gone already! Looks like another batch will be made today! Perfect for school lunch boxes I reckon.

  9. Far too healthy - I've just made a batch and drizzled melted chocolate over them in a scribbly pattern, just for added vitamin C (for Chocolate, natch!) Thanks for this Donna, I love tried and true recipes that always work.

  10. thanks for all the great comments

  11. I have made these bars so many times now and they are favourites when certain company comes for dinner.

    An addition of 1 cup of dried cranberries (soak them in hot water for a few minutes) to the receipe makes them different and still delicious and I now call them Cranzac bars.

    Many thanks for sharing your receipe many years ago.
