With ANZAC day coming this weekend, now is the perfect time to get into the ANZAC spirit by baking up a batch of famous ANZAC biscuits.
Getting your children involved in cooking and baking helps build some key life skills, not to mention helps with their social, mental, and physical development… plus they absolutely love getting involved!
To help families get into the ANZAC spirit together, we’ve sourced one of the best recipes from RSL Queensland and made it easy so parents know what to do, and the kids know what their job is too!
1 cup plain flour
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup desiccated coconut
1 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp golden syrup
1 tbsp hot water
1 tsp bicarb soda
Preheat your oven to 175 degrees Celsius. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
2. Both Parents & Kids…
Wash your hands, so they are sparkling clean.
Pour the flour, oats, coconut and sugar into a large bowl and stir with a wooden spoon to combine them together.
In a saucepan, melt the butter and then add the golden syrup. Bring it to the boil and remove it from the stove.
Stand back and watch, as it is very hot and can really hurt if you touch it.
Mix the hot water and bicarb soda, then add it to the butter and syrup. You will see it froth up.
Pour this into the dry ingredients and stir together.
Once it is nice and cool, you can stir the all ingredients together with a wooden spoon, or better… your hands!
If the mixture gets a little dry, your parents can add a little water.
With nice clean hands, take spoonful’s of the mixture and roll them up into balls and place on the baking tray, about 5cm apart.
Squish them down gently with a fork to flatten them.
Pop them into the oven for 10-15 minutes, or until they’re golden brown.
Let them cool on a baking tray for about a minute, and then move them to a wire rack to cool properly.
Enjoy your yummy ANZAC biscuits!
