(Margaret Fulton's recipe)
1 cup each of plain flour, sugar, rolled oats and coconut
120gms of butter, melted
1 tablespoon of golden syrup
2 tablespoons of boiling water
1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda dissolved in a little water
Mix together dry ingredients
Then the rest
Spoon onto a greased oven tray
Cook in a coolish oven 150-160 C for 10 to 15 minutes.
Okay, it would appear that some of you have had trouble baking Anzac biscuits. I too, have had flops from time to time (even though they are still edible, they just didn't flatten out properly). However this batch turned out just right, so go figure! I use the same recipe every time.
What I did different this time was to melt the butter and golden syrup together, but didn't add the water or bi carb to it. I added the butter mix to the dry ingredients and then added the bi carb dissolved in 2 tablespoons of boiling water. I also use butter not cooking margarine. Maybe the temperature of the oven has something to do with it. These are cooked in a coolish oven not moderate.
1/2 cup sugar
3 mashed bananas
1 1/2 cups SR flour
1 tspn carb soda
2 tblspns water
Cream butter and sugar well, add mashed bananas, beaten eggs, SR flour and the carb soda that has been mixed with water. Add walnuts and mix well. Place in 8" square or round tin and bake for about 1/2 hour at 180C-190C. Ice with chocolate icing and sprinkle with coconut if desired.
This banana cake is extremely moist and extremely delicious. The recipe has been handed down to me from my mother. It is a little different to the standard banana cake recipe,(much nicer in my opinion) as mum has changed it a little. I don't add walnuts, only because I'm not fond of them. The cake is just as nice without them.
