WW2 recipes – Anzac Biscuits

YOU WILL NEED

1 cup of plain flour

1 cup of rolled oats

1 cup of desiccated coconut

1 cup of brown sugar

½ cup of butter of your ration.

2 ½ tbs golden syrup ( or honey)

1 tsp bicarb soda

2 ½ tbsp of boiling water

Combine flour, oats, sugar and coconut into a bowl.

Melt the butter and golden syrup or honey in a pot over low heat

Mix the bicarb soda with the water and then add to the butter and golden syrup or honey

Pour the liquid mixture into the dry mixture and mix it all well.

Teaspoon dollops of the mixture onto a greased tray make sure you leave space for spreading.

Bake in a 350F for 15 to 20 mins

 

In reality I melted the butter, syrup and sugar, poured this into the dry ingredients, added the water and bicarb and mixed up. I messed up the weighing so my ratios are all wrong but they taste fantastic!
