Passing on the Anzac baking tradition to kids

Is there anything better than an Anzac bicky? Dunked into a glass of milk, cup of tea if you will. It’s the absolutely Australian way to do milk and cookies… But don’t get us wrong, we aren’t calling our famous biscuit a cookie, because that’s just not on.

Kids will love helping to mix the sticky golden syrup butter mixture with coconut, oats and plain flour. They’ll enjoy rolling the dough into misshaped shapes and will definitely sneak a sample of dough when you aren’t watching.

But what’s fantastic about getting kids involved with the process of making Anzac biscuits, is that you’ll be able to share the rich history of the biscuit.

Initially a recipe developed to provide sustenance to our soldiers, it was later adapted to help woman in the community raise money for their husbands at war.

It’s original purpose still inspires Anzac baking today. So next time you bake a batch, make sure to include the kids and share with them the special story of the Anzacs, while demonstrating that bicky’s are always better home-baked.
