Brian makes Anzac biscuits


Yessiree, he sure does.

The perfect biscuit too…

1 cup flour plain flour, desiccated coconut, rolled oats, white sugar.

125g butter, 1 tablespoon golden syrup, 2 tablespoons water, 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda.

In a bowl, mix together flour, coconut, oats and sugar. In a small saucepan, gently heat water butter and syrup until butter has melted. Stir in the bicarb. It will bubble and froth. (Really cool) Pour melted, frothy stuff into the dry stuff and mix really well. Roll onto walnut sized balls and place on baking paper covered baking trays, leaving enough room for spreading. Flatten with the bottom of a glass and bake in a 150C oven for about 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on wire rack.

Enjoy with a cup of your favourite tea.
