Recipes: ANZAC Biscuit

ANZAC spirit in your kitchen!

https://cdn.donnahaycdn.com.au/images/content-images/anzac_biscuits.jpg

With ANZAC Day just past, I thought we could continue to honour the spirit of ANZAC from home by sharing this recipe on how to make ANZAC biscuit from the comfort of your own kitchen.

Ingredients:

  • 2ย cups rolled oats
  • all-purpose flour (1 cup, 150g plain)
  • 2/3ย cups caster (superfine sugar)
  • 3/4ย cups dry coconut
  • 1/3ย cups honey or golden syrup
  • 125ย grams unsalted butter
  • baking soda (1 teaspoon bicarbonate of)
  • 2ย tablespoons hot water

You can make gluten free ANZAC biscuit by swapping all-purpose flour with rice flour or coconut flour.

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 160ยฐC. Place the oats, flour, sugar and coconut in a bowl and mix to combine.
  2. Place the golden syrup and butter in a saucepan over low heat and cook, stirring, until melted. Combine the bicarbonate of soda with the water and add to the butter mixture. Pour into the oat mixture and mix well to combine.
  3. Place tablespoonfuls of the mixture onto baking trays lined with non-stick baking paper and flatten to 7cm rounds, allowing room to spread. Bake for 8โ€“10 minutes or until deep golden. Allow to cool on baking trays for 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

ANZAC Day

Lest We Forget.

https://i2.wp.com/www.victoriapark.wa.gov.au/files/assets/public/image-galleries/new-folder/anzac-day-2017.jpg

25 April is a day we remind ourselves of the sacrifice past and present soldiers have made to make our soil safe and sound. ANZAC Day is a day which brings all Australians together to reflect upon what we have today and learn to be grateful to both men and women who serviced or servicing our country. These valorous men and women work day and night, regardless of public holidays or festive seasons to keep us safe, be it in Australia or overseas.

This year on ANZAC Day let us reflect upon the ongoing chaos and terrorism around Australia. With each inhumane terrorist attack, we ought not to point our fingers at certain groups of Australians. We should stay strong together as a nation and rise above. Looking ahead with major changes to immigration in Australia, we as an everyday John Doe should do what we can do – educate ourselves and learn more about others and the differences in our lives.

Today as we play The Last Post during the dawn service, let us offer a moment of silence for the past fallen diggers who has fought courageously for our countries. May the family members and generations to come continue to feel proud of their courageous spirit. May them have the might and courage to move on from the tragedy that strikes them. May we all continue to offer all our mates one of the best outstanding values of being an Australian – the value of mateship.

Lest We Forget.

Guilt-free and gluten free!

https://i2.wp.com/www.bourbonandhoney.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/No-Churn-Coconut-Peach-Ice-Cream-_-BourbonAndHoney.com-5.jpg?w=600

This Easter break treat yourself to these guilt free and gluten free ice cream. It is easy to make and suitable for people of various dietary requirements.

Ingredients:

  • 4 peaches
  • 1 can full fat coconut milk
  • 1/3 cup of honey (or maple syrup)
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt

Instructions:

  1. Peel and slice peaches, then freeze until firm, about 1 hour. If using purchased frozen, you can obviously skip this step.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, blend together the coconut milk, honey, lemon juice, vanilla and salt with the frozen peaches until creamy and smooth.
  3. Serve immediately soft-serve-style, or freeze covered until frozen solid, about 6 hours. To serve, allow ice cream to stand at room temperature for about 15 minutes before serving to be scoop-able.
