Anzac biscuits

The beautiful thing about the Internet is that you get to ‘meet’ people that you might not otherwise have the opportunity to interact with in real life. I got a like on one of my posts, by a lovely lady called Angie, so as a good blogger does I headed over to Angie’s website and had a look at what she was writing about. It’s lovely to find another person who loves writing about the love of food. It’s inspirational. She has a lot of interesting recipes that I took notes on and decided to explore a few of them. The first one was Anzac biscuits, this piqued my interest because I have two unopened bags of desiccated coconut in my “pantry” that require ingestion! I also seem to have a lot of Scottish oats that also can’t be eaten faster than I have them for breakfast! A match made in foodie heaven.

The recipe is very simple and easy to execute but I actually ended up using a similar recipe from the the BBC goodfood site because my kitchen scales suddenly stopped working ! So I had to look for a recipe that used cups and spoons. Pretty random I know… And maybe I need to learn the conversion of grams to cups.

They did not last long…


  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 tbsp boiling water


  1. Preheat oven 180C / 350F. mix together flour, oats, coconut and brown sugar
  2. Melt butter and golden syrup in the microwave. Mix the mix bicarbonate of soda with the boiling water and add to the melted butter and Golden Syrup.
  3. Pour the liquids into the dry ingredients and mix well.
  4. Roll spoonful by spoonful of mixture, about the size of a walnut shell and place onto an oven try lined with baking paper. leaving space again between dollops to allow for spreading.
  5. Press dollops down with a fork to flaten and proceed to bake for 15-20 minutes, Cool on a wire rack and seal in airtight containers.
