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..............
