ANZAC day is finally here so I've decided to share with you a traditional delicious biscuit that is simple and egg-free, the well known ANZAC biscuit.
ANZAC biscuits were originally made by women and children and were sent to their loved ones fighting at war.
This biscuit is known for its capabilities of lasting a while in the cupboard. So let's make it!
Step 1: Ingredients
Dry ingredients: Utensils:
- 1 cup self raising flour (if using plain flour also add 1 tsp of baking powder) - large mixing bowl
- 1 cup white sugar - wooden spoon
- 1 cup rolled oats - sauce pan
- 1 cup coconut - measuring tools
- 1 tsp bi-carb soda - spoon
Wet ingredients: - about 2 trays
- 150g butter, chopped. - baking paper
- 1 tbsp golden syrup. - oven mittens
- 2 tbsp Boiling water
This will make about 1 and a half batches of biscuits.
Step 2: Preparation
Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celsius fan forced (320 degrees Fahrenheit)
Step 3: Dry Ingredients
Step 4: Wet Ingredients
If the mixture starts to bubble reduce heat to low.
Step 5: Mixing All the Ingredients.
Step 6: Shaping
Place these balls onto the trays you prepared earlier.
Repeat this process until you run out of batter.
Leave about 3cm of room between each biscuit (depending on the size of your biscuits) so they don't over lap each other (if they just touch that's fine).
