Anzac Biscuit Recipe Tips from UNCLE TOBYS Ambassador, Hayden Quinn
- Ensure you buy good-quality oats to give your Anzac Biscuits the right texture. For me, UNCLE TOBYS Traditional Rolled Oats work perfectly to make a delicious Anzac biscuit.
- There is nothing better than an original. The UNCLE TOBYS Anzac Biscuit recipe is over 100-years old.
- Add a pinch of sea salt flakes before baking to counter the sweetness in the Anzac Biscuit and the flavour of the oats.
- Spray your measuring spoon with a little cooking oil before scooping up the golden syrup to prevent sticking to the spoon.
- If you prefer a chewy Anzac biscuit, bake for 10-12 minutes until only lightly golden on the edges. They will be soft when removing from the oven but firm up once cooled.
- If you prefer a crunchy Anzac biscuit, replace the caster sugar with brown sugar and bake for 12-15 minutes until very golden brown on the edges. Allow to cool and firm up on the baking tray once removed from the oven.
- Brown your butter before adding to the other ingredients to give your biscuits an extra rich nuttiness and caramel flavour.
