Anzac Biscuits

I've been living in Perth for 2 years. It is a  nice place to live, really. The people are lovely and the city is absolutely beautiful. Before leaving next month, I just want to make traditional Australian things. It's gonna be a tribute to this city. This time I choose Anzac biscuits, classic Australian biscuits. They are easy to make...crunchy, buttery, and crisp... a delicious mix of coconut, oat and golden syrup.




1 cup rolled oat
1 cup plain flour
1 cup sugar (I use only 1/2 cup)
3/4 cup desiccated coconut
125 gr butter
2 tbs golden syrup
1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda
1 tbs hot water



  1. Combine oats, sifted flour, sugar and coconut.
  2. Combine butter and golden syrup, stir over gentle heat until melted.
  3. Mix soda with boiling water, add to butter mixture. Stir into dry ingredients.
  4. Take a tsp of mixture and place on lightly greased oven trays, allowing room for spreading.
  5. Cook in slow oven (150C) for 20 minutes.
  6. Loosen while still warm, then cool on trays.
