An Ambrosial Treat!! I want more Anzac Biscuits !! These delightful Oaty, Coconutty biscuits have got a history! I have not been aware of its historic presence, until my neighbour Sara mentioned it to me amidst our habitual catchup. A for Australia , Nz for NewZeland!! No wonder these biscuits are special !! Having said that, they are scrumptious,delicious and what not. Nom Nom.. and Effortless!
I looked up the google, reading in-depth of its existence. ANZAC stands for Australia and New Zeland Army Corps that was established in the World War. Wives used to send these biscuits to their soldier husbands whilst in war since the ingredients used in the making do not perish easily.
These biscuits should have been made a week before and embellished my blog wall. But a couple of engagements in my personal front held me back from baking these delectable goodies. Today, apart from the blah blah chores and routine, I had made up mind to bake them , hoping they turn out just as it should .. Voila !!
My little helpers at home , V and S were all over the kitchen, trying to fetch the ingredients for the biscuits. Oats, Desiccated Coconut , Icecream pictured Soda Bicarbonate, Yumm Golden Syrup and more. Trying to be the Big B, V helped his mama weighing all the ingredients. But when it came to melting the butter and golden syrup, V immediately said ” Amma its dangerous for me to help you on the hob . You do the big people’s job, while I help you to mix them when its all ready. ” Aww my handy helper is growing old and is realising things around him. I am soo much going to miss this stage !!!
Porridge is Our new family favourite !! V loves the golden syrup dripping over his Oats and milk , when it goes into the oven to get made. His Mama is getting smarter now a days and hence has decided to include oats in our tea time biscuits too 🙂 This Oat enriched Biscuit has everything from our morning goodness with a little luxury and its all ready in 20 minutes.
The original recipe called for about 100 g of Butter and 1 tbsp of Golden syrup. But when I stirred the mixtures together, It did not show any sign of coming together. I had to melt another 25g of Butter and 1 tblspn of Golden Syrup.. and it did the job.
