Everything you need for an Australia Day feast

Australia has beautiful wildlife and weather, an amazing music scene, and fantastic food. Aussies tend to celebrate these things on a daily basis, but this is especially true on Australia Day (26 January) when many have family and friends over for a BBQ, good tunes and beer on ice. How about complementing your BBQ feast with some traditional Aussie treats?

Anzac biscuits

Whether you like them chewy or crisp, homemade Anzac biscuits are an Aussie classic! Often made in time for Anzac Day (25 April), these popular treats make great lunchbox fillers.

Anzac biscuits

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut
  • 125g butter
  • 2 tabs golden syrup
  • 1/2 tsp bicarb soda
  • 1 tabs water

Method:

  1. Sift the flour and sugar into a bowl. Add the rolled oats and coconut.
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan and stir in the golden syrup and water.
  3. Stir the bicarb soda into the liquid mixture.
  4. Add the liquid to the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  5. Roll small balls of mixture and place on a greased tray.
  6. Bake at 175C for 15-20 minutes. The longer they are cooked, the less chewy they will be.
  7. Biscuits will harden when cool.
