Recipe: ANZAC Biscuits

In the baking module for Level 3 cooks, we always make this classic kiwi cookie - the ANZAC biscuit which commemorates Australian and New Zealand soldiers who fought in World War 1 and subsequent wars.

  • ½ cup Edmonds standard flour  
  • 65 g (⅓ cup) sugar

  • 50g butter

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  • 2. Mix together flour, sugar, coconut and rolled oats.
  • 3. Melt butter and golden syrup. Dissolve baking soda in the boiling water and add to butter and golden syrup. Stir butter mixture into the dry ingredients.
  • 4. Place level tablespoonfuls of mixture onto cold greased trays and flatten with a fork.  These don't spread as they bake so you can place them close together.
