Anzac biscuits


Who doesn’t love a good Anzac biscuit?¬†For me, they conjure up memories of cooking in the kitchen with Mum. She is renowned for her special recipe, and I was notorious for eating them raw before they went into the oven. I’ve always had a soft spot for cake and biscuit mixture! Mum still makes Anzacs to this day, sometimes more than once a week. My little niece and nephews are big fans of her special recipe.

There’s a few variations on the original recipe that was made famous during WW1. Legend has it that wives sent the biscuits to soldiers because they could stand the heat of naval transportation. On this occasion, I used a recipe from taste.com.au (one of the best recipe websites on the planet). The finished product was a little too dry for my liking … I prefer my Anzacs a little more chewy. The hint of cinnamon added a nice touch. Next time, I’ll ask Mum is she’s happy to share her tried and tested recipe. Stay tuned.
