Aussie Cooking – Anzac Biscuits! April 6

Today’s activity was Aussie Cooking, making Anzac biscuits.

First step to making these delicious cookies was combining all the ingredients…


Then spooning the mixture onto baking trays ready to cook…


And then enjoying the cookies as soon as they were (nearly) cool – after removing the baking paper that had stuck to the bottom of them all…oops! Thanks for baking with me SimoneInolaJess and Noriko! 🙂


If you want to try them at home, here is the recipe:


2 cups rolled oats

1 cup plain flour

2/3 cup caster sugar

3/4 cup desiccated coconut

1/3 cup golden syrup

125g butter

1 teaspoon bicarb soda

2 tablespoons hot water



  1. Preheat oven to 160°C
  1. Place the oats, flour, sugar and coconut in a bowl and mix to combine
  1. Cook the golden syrup and butter in a saucepan over low heat, stirring, until melted
  1. Combine the bicarb soda with the water and add to the butter mixture
  1. Pour into the oat mixture and mix well to combine
  1. Place a large spoonful of the mixture onto baking trays lined with baking paper and flatten to 7cm rounds, allowing room to spread
  1. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until deep golden in colour
  1. Allow to cool on baking trays for 5 minutes then transfer to wire racks to cool completely
  1. EAT THEM ALL! And share with your friends. If you want… 🙂
