Your Friends Will Be So Impressed   1 comment

If you read my last Aussie Slang Word Of The Day post, you’re probably wondering where the recipe is! So although this post is late in arriving, I have posted it nonetheless. Here is my ANZAC biscuit recipe. It’s easy to throw together, but a bit of care has to be taken with the baking part, so they don’t fall apart! By making this recipe, you will earn the Aussie Bikkie Achievement Badge. Happy baking!

Ingredients:
1 cup flaked oats
1 cup sugar (I use brown or cane sugar)
1 cup coconut flakes
2 level teaspoons baking power/bicarb soda
Good 1/2 cup of butter (don’t use the fake stuff or margarine. Treat yourself to the real stuff)
4 tablespoons golden syrup (Maple syrup also works, but the flavor is a wee bit different)
2 tablespoons water (H20)

To Make:
1) Mix all the dry ingredients together (except the baking powder)
2) On med-high heat, in a small pan, melt the butter, water, syrup and baking powder until consistent/butter’s melted (watch it & stir frequently so it doesn’t burn at the bottom). Lots of tiny, frothy bubbles will form.
3) Transfer the melted frothy bubbling mix into the dry ingredients and mix everything together really well. Put some elbow grease into it.
4) Teaspoon heaps of the mix onto a greased oven tray (Mix will make about 3 tray’s worth if you space them out). No need to flatten too much. Just squish them down a bit. I actually find it easier to use my hands and make little balls instead of heaps. They stay together a bit better once they’ve baked.
5) Bake about 20/25 minutes or until golden brown at about 330ºF. Make sure you watch them – they’ll start to brown very quickly on the bottom rack, so rotate to top oven rack at about 10-15 minutes into the baking.
6) Remove from oven and **leave on baking trays for about 3 -5 minutes*** They’ll fall apart if you try to move them straight away. Once they’re a bit more solid, gently use a spatula to move them to a cooling rack/plate. They harden even more over time.

NOM NOM!
