ANZAC biscuits have long had an association with the Australia/New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) troops sent to Gallipoli during WWI. The biscuit appears to be a variation of Scottish oat cakes, said to be from the Scottish-influenced city of Dunedin. The recipe was created to ensure the biscuits would keep well during naval transportation to loved ones who were fighting abroad.

Ingredients[edit]

if you don't have coconut add more syrup and more oats

Procedure[edit]

  1. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl, and melt the syrup and butter in a saucepan. If necessary add a little water to the mix.
  2. Mix the wet and dry ingredients and roll into small balls and flatten on oven trays
  3. Bake at 150°C (300°F) for about 15 minutes.

The finished biscuits are quite chewy and crisp, with a long shelf-life.

Notes, tips, and variations[edit]

  1. Using brown sugar instead of white sugar gives more colour and flavour
  2. 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda and add a little more water if mixture is too dry
