Anzac Day.

Just thought I would share some photos I took of Smidge and I preparing for Anzac Day. A wonderful friend of mine provided lots of yummy Anzac biscuits and drinks for the diggers after the march so I was very pleased to help out with making some of them. As you can see, so was Smidge.

Well, first we need a cute outfit...

We tip the 'stuff' in

You can tip it low, or tip it high. High is more fun!

Mum will do some fiddly stuff on the 'ooo hot!' but then you can mix it

And use your hands to mix it a bit more...

Roll it into balls...

Try not to worry about spills- that's what Mum is there for...

And cook until they are golden brown. Yum!

    Ah, this was the recipe I used from the ABA forum for the Great Anzac Day bikkie run for BM. It was posted by Trinity 🙂

    We ate a couple (for quality testing purposes of course!) before sending them and they were delish!

    1 cup plain flour
    1 cup rolled oats (not minute oats)
    1 cup desiccated coconut
    1 cup sugar (raw is my choice, but white works too)
    125g butter
    3tbsp golden syrup
    2tbsp boiling water
    1tsp bicarb soda

    Preheat oven to 180degrees celsius. Line baking trays with baking paper. Mix flour, rolled oats, coconut, sugar in a large bowl. Melt butter and golden syrup in a saucepan. In a separate small bowl, mix boiling water and bicarb, and pour immediately into golden syrup and butter mixture (it will froth up), pour over dry ingredients, and stir until combined. Drop spoonfuls of mixture onto trays allowing room for biscuits to spread. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until golden. Remove from oven and transfer biscuits to a wire rack to cool. Makes approx 30.
