Best left to the experts

Sometimes, when you're after just the right results, it's best to go straight to the experts, so when I had a hankering for a little something baked tonight, I didn't hesitate to pull out my Country Treasures cookbook for the Country Women's Association of Victoria ANZAC biscuit recipe.
And, oooh, I was NOT disappointed that I did.

These ANZACs are just about as close to biscuity perfection as you can get - just the right combination of crispy on the edge and chewy in the centre!

And since they're so perfectly delicious, I'm sure the Victorian CWA ladies wouldn't mind me sharing =)

ANZAC Biscuits
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 125g melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon golden syrup
  • 2 tablespoons boiling water
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
Mix dry ingredients thoroughly in a large bowl. Add melted butter, syrup and boiling water to which the bicarb has been added. Mix to a firm consistency. Place on a greased oven tray and flatten. Bake in a moderate oven (180Cish - depending one your oven) until brown (I think mine took about 10 minutes - but just keep an eye on them =))

Taa daa - ready quicker than you watch an episode of Law and Order Criminal Intent - even if you fast forward through the ads!



  1. Mmm, Anzac bikkies - an absolute favourite. Quite like them half-dipped in dark chocolate, too - not traditional but delicious.

  2. Yummo! :) I remember when my Mum used to cook from CWA cookbooks - in fact she probably still does. Her CWA cookbook was the most dog-eared one she had!

  3. I love my CWA cook book. I use a similar recipe to that, only I cook the butter, bicarb and syrup all together in a pot.

    And did you know that if you cook ANZAC Biscuits on a sunny day, they will be crunchy, but on a cloudy/rainy day they will be soft!

  4. Thanks for the recipe & I love Anzac biscuits.

  5. These sound delish...but I'm a floridian and I don't know what golden syrup it corn syrup or some such thing? Thanks for sharing the recipe..can't wait to try it.
