Need ideas for using Golden Syrup!
I just ordered a one pound jar of Lyle's golden syrup on Amazon before realizing I don't have that many ideas on what to do with it! For those of you that are unfamiliar with this syrup, it is a pale treacle, meaning that it's a few steps before molasses in the sugar-refining process. Does anyone have any ideas about what to do with the stuff?
ingredient in Australia's best loved biscuit (or cookie).. ANZAC biscuits.
ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zeland Army Corps. and these biscuits were baked for the troops during WW11. They're an aussie staple and delicious!
1 cup (150g) plain flour
1 cup (90g) rolled oats
1 cup (85g)desiccated coconut
3/4 cup (155g) brown sugar
2 tbs golden syrup
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
reheat the oven to 160°C. Line baking trays with non-stick baking paper. Sift the flour into a large bowl. Stir in the oats, coconut and brown sugar.
Put the butter, golden syrup and 2 tbs water in a small saucepan. Stir over a medium heat until melted. Stir in the bicarbonate of soda.
Pour the butter mixture into the flour mixture and stir until combined.
Roll level tablespoons of mixture into balls. Place on the trays, about 5cm apart.
Press with a fork to flatten slightly. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
Set aside on the trays for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Makes about 24.
