Every year I bake ANZAC Biscuits for neighbours and friends and publish our mother’s recipe for all to share, here it is again.
I realise we all have various versions, but I always return to this simple and tasty recipe, quick to whip up before ANZAC Day on 25 April. I am about to bake mine today.
ANZAC BISCUITS Lest We Forget
125 gram or ¼ lb butter
1 tablespoon golden Syrup
1 teaspoon bicarbonate soda
2 tablespoons boiling water
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup coconut
1 cup plain flour
1 cup castor sugar
Dissolve butter and golden syrup in a large pot.
Add bicarbonate dissolved in the boiling water, to the pot and mix well.
Add remaining ingredients and mix.
Teaspoon onto a baking tray or with baking paper on the tray.
Cook in 150C preheated oven for approximately 15 minutes (longer for extra crispiness).
Leave on the tray until cool. Store in an airtight container.
On the birth of her two grandsons, Ruth Greening experienced an awakening in her life and entering Gen GP (Generation Grandparent) she was given the moniker Nanny Babe as her ‘grandmother’ title. She found things had changed since her child rearing days, and an adjustment to new parenting concepts was required. Hence the birth of the Nanny Babe blog from a baby boomers perspective.

She is experienced in senior management positions, marketing, modelling, commercials, film, community radio and writing.
