anzac biccies

Anzac Day. A day for two up, beer...and paying respects to our soldiers of course. And Anzac biscuits. Like any CWA or old school recipe, the ingredients, quantities and method differ from town to town, so if the below contradicts your nan's long held recipe, I apologise. The following comes from the 1965 St John the Baptist Church of England Parish Mudgee Recipe Book and was written by Mrs Rayner - you're probably long passed, but we thank you all the same.*


1 cup rolled oats
1 cup desiccated coconut
1 cup plain flour
pinch salt
½ cup sugar white
½ cup melted butter
tbs honey
2 tbs boiling water
½ tsp bicarb


  1. Mix oats, sugar, flour, salt, coconut, melted butter
  2. Stir in honey
  3. Then bicarb of soda , dissolved in the boiling water
  4. Drop by the tsp into greased oven tray (small is better as it expands)
  5. Bake in moderate oven for 15-20 minutes, 160-180 deg
*Thanks also to Mrs Jacqui Bantock for digging up the recipe and sharing it with the next generation.
