Knitting and London life. Not necessarily in that order.

..or should that be Anzac flapjack?
I used a recipe from Sue Lawrence's book On Baking. Something went a bit wrong, perhaps with the ingredients, which I adapted slightly. This tray wasn't too bad - at least they look like they were once separate entities. The other lot just flowed into a single mass, filling the tray and ending up about 5mm thick.
Preheat oven to Gas 3/160C or 325F. Melt butter and syrup in a large saucepan over a low heat.Dissolve the bicarb in the hot water, then add to pan. Put the rest of the ingredients in the pan, stir well. Put spoonfuls on a lightly greased baking tray, bake for 15-20 mins until golden brown.
Anzac stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, the biscuits were introduced during the First World War as a tribute to the forces who fought in the invasion of the Gallipolo peninsula in 1915.
I thought the recipe was particularly appropriate for today, Armistice Day.
