BM# 75: A-Z Bake Around the World: Day 1
Bake of the Day: A for Anzac Biscuits
Country: Australia

We are starting our month long mega marathon today and the theme is ‘A-Z Bake around the World’. So some of us enthusiastic home bakers will be baking nonstop this April. The challenge is to post dishes in alphabetical order and they have to be from differenct countries. A country can be repeated only 2 times.Australian Anzac Cookies Recipe It took quite a bit of research to come up with a list of dishes to bake. After making the list, the next challenge is to find people to eat all these bakes. My husband travels quite a bit for business, so I planned most of the dishes while he was home. And for the rest, I had to make sure that don’t miss a single chance of baking — like visiting friends or friends visiting us.
Australian Anzac Cookies RecipeStarting the mega marathon with these slightly hard and chewy Anzac biscuits. These have long been associated with the Australia and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) established in World War I. It is said that they were sent by wives to soldiers aboard because the cookies keep well during transportation and the ingredients don’t spoil that easily.Australian Anzac Cookies RecipeI made these Anzac biscuits to bring to a get together at a friends house. If I had made them just for ourselves, we would have eaten them for almost a week, but there they were gone in about an hour. So glad to have friends who appreciate homemade goodies.

These cookies are quick and easy to put together. They are made with rolled oats, flour, sugar, golden syrup and desiccated coconut. They are great to serve for tea time. Recipe is from Taste.Australian Anzac Cookies Recipe

  3. Pavani, I loved Anzac biscuits when I had baked them some time back. I loved the texture of the cookies and they were so easy to make. I agree about finding people to eat the bakes. My husband would have gained a few pounds just by eating all the bakes I have done for the month and I am only half way done! Looking forward to your rest of the bakes. 🙂
