Anzac Biscuits

Anzac biscuits are delicious biscuits in Australia and New Zealand. These biscuits are  made of flour, coconut, golden syrup, rolled oats and unsalted butter. Recipe from ‘’ A step by step guide to Breads, Cakes & Slices”.

Makes: 26 Anzac biscuits


Please measure all the ingredients in  standard measuring cup of 250 ml capacity and use same measuring cup to measure flour, sugar, oats and desiccated coconut.

1 cup plain flour (maida)

2/3 cup sugar

 1 cup rolled oats

1 cup desiccated coconut

125 g unsalted butter

¼ cup golden syrup or honey or treacle

½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda (cooking soda)

1 tablespoon boiling water


Preheat oven (OTG) to moderate heat at 180 * C or 350 * F. Line a 32 x 28 cm biscuit tray / baking tray with baking paper (butter paper).

Sift flour and sugar into large mixing bowl. Add oats and coconut; make a well in the centre.

Combine butter and golden syrup in small pan. Stir over low heat until butter has melted and mixture is smooth; remove from heat. Dissolve soda in boiling water; add immediately to butter mixture. It will foam up instantly. Add butter mixture to dry ingredients. Using a wooden spoon, stir until well combined.
