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
- Preheat oven 180C / 350F. mix together flour, oats, coconut and brown sugar
- 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.
- Pour the liquids into the dry ingredients and mix well.
- 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.
- 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.
