Anzac slice is an Australian classic with a twist! An adaptation of the Anzac biscuit, the slice offers a more delicate, soft texture than that of the traditionally hard biscuits. Here is an easy and equally delicious recipe for you to try:

What you will need:

  • 1 and 1/4 of a cup of plain flour
  • 1 and 1/4 of a cup of rolled oats
  • 1 cup of brown sugar (firmly packed)
  • 1 cup of shredded coconut
  • 150g of butter (chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons of golden syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon of bicarb soda
  • 2 tablespoons of boiling water

What you need to do:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan force and grease and line a slice pan with baking paper (pan size preferably 3cm deep, 19cm x 29cm base)
  2. Mix the flour, oats, sugar and coconut in a large bowl and make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients
  3. Place the butter and syrup in a saucepan over low heat. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes until smooth, stirring occasionally
  4. Mix bicarb soda and the boiling water in a jug
  5. Remove the butter/syrup mix from heat and begin to stir in the diluted bicarb soda
  6. Pour the liquid ingredients into the well created in the centre of the dry ingredients. Stir to combine and then transfer to the prepared pan (Use the back of your wooden spoon to press the mix evenly into place)
  7. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown
  8. Once cooled cut into squares and enjoy!

Serving suggestions: for added flavour mix some raisins in with the dry ingredients.
