Anzac Biscuits

You have no idea how hard it was for me to finally locate a store near me that sold desiccated coconut, but when I finally did I managed to whip up a couple of batches of chewy Anzac biscuits much to the same recipe I did last year.

Anzac Biscuits

I brought a bunch to work and it was nice being able to explain Anzac biscuits, and more importantly Anzac Day and the tribute to all of the people who were a part of ANZAC. Amazingly not many people had tasted these biscuits and even though some people didn’t really like coconut still found them very tasty.

  1. mm…. they look good! I love coconut too, and I didn’t know what ANZAC was until today. If I ever decide to make these (doubtful, so don’t bother), I’ll have to verify my translation of the recipe.

    Desiccated coconut? == Just the dried stuff? That’s easy to find here!
    golden syrup == corn syrup?
    bicarbonate of soda == baking soda?

    and apparently 125g is a cup of butter 🙂 Happy Anzac Day!

  2. ANZAC day was actually Wed (April 25) but I couldn’t post this because I didn’t have the coconut! They’re worth trying and it’s not to hard to play around with the recipe (less sugar and less butter and they still turn out okay!)

    Desiccated coconut is just tried stuff. Golden syrup I think is either treacle or molasses in the States. It seems to be a bit more of a British thing, and yes bi-carb of soda = baking soda.
