Anzac Day

Anzac Biscuits
1 cup Plain Flour
2 cups Rolled Oats
1/2 cup sugar
125g Butter
2Tbs Golden Syrup
2tsp Bi Carb Soda
2 Tbs Boiling Water

• Preheat oven to 160°C
• Mix together dry ingredients
• Melt Butter and syrup together, I  put it in a microwave jug for 30 – 60 secs
• Add Bi carb to boiling water, stir then combine with Melted butter mix. 
• Make sure you have a big enough (1/2 litre) jug because it froths up.
• Pour into Dry Mix and combine.
• Use a tablespoon of mix and roll into ball then place onto baking paper lined trays, should make 2 dozen.
• Bake for 20 min, a little less for chewy or a little more for crunchy.

I usually bake them for 18 min; the kids don’t like them too crunchy.

Make sure you only use teaspoons for the bi carb, we once used tablespoons and they tasted horrible. :)

We had a fairly quiet Anzac day this year. It was the first time in 23 years that Fox didn't go to dawn service. He took the twins to march in the parade with their scout group .

I should also mention he has a tooth ache, not from chocolate though, he got it on Friday but being on holidays he refuses to go in to work to get it seen to. Men!

I hope that next Anzac day we will all be able to attend dawn service together.

Lest We Forget.


  1. It is a national holiday here too, remembering the 'liberazione', the end of the fascist era. I didn't know the meaning of Anzac nor that it is a national day of remembrance in your part of the world. It is a good thing to teach to the new generations respect for the past.

  2. Love ANZAC biscuits.

    that is the same recipe I use, my Grandmother gave me the recipe so it is our ANZAC day tradition.

  3. I had full intentions of making these today and ended up making scones instead..for lunch. We are all fans of Anzac bikkies in this house!

  4. Anzac Day isn't the same without lovely Anzac biscuits. Unfortunately I haven't made my own for ages, but I'm inspired for next year now!
