ANZAC Day is around the corner so I whipped up my ANZAC slice to share with you all. It’s really just ANZAC biscuits squished into a slice tray but tasty just the same.
I prefer to use an organic shredded coconut because I love the texture I also add organic honey to my mix but if you don’t have that it’s fine just add extra golden syrup.
For years I melted the butter and golden syrup in a pan on the stove but these days I do it in the microwave, if you choose to do this please be careful. Hot butter and syrup is HOT so do it in bursts and stir intermittently.
Ok let’s make this slice….
YOU WILL NEED…
I cup sifted plain flour
1 cup shredded coconut
I cup oats
3/4 cup brown sugar
125 g butter
2 tablespoons golden syrup
I heaped tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon bi carb
2 tablespoons of boiling water.
LET’S MAKE THIS…
Melt the butter, honey and syrup together. I do it in a microwave as stated above but do it your way.
In a bowl add flour, coconut, brown sugar and oats.
Add the hot water and bicarbonate to the butter mix and stir, it will froth up. When it starts frothing quickly dump it into dry mix and bring it all together with a wooden spoon.
Press into a lined slice tray and bake at 180deg for 25-35 minutes.
The crispier you like it the longer you bake. I actually removed mine early because I like ‘chewy, cut and removed a few slices then decided to put half back in the oven to get even crispier. The men folk prefer ‘crispy crunchy’. Allow to part cool in pan then slide the slice out and cut.
Enjoy with your favourite cup of tea and give thanks to the ANZACS who sacrificed to allow us the privilege of living in a wonderful and safe country.
Til next time,
