Homemade ANZAC Biscuit Recipe

April 22, 2022

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.



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.
