Quick Anzac Slice

I managed 21 posts last month for my December Daily. That is the most posts in a month I have ever done by one. In April 2008 I did 20. It was during that month that I went to Nundle......... ahhhh the memories.

Well I have had a distinct case of posting burnout, because I have just not been able to come up with anything.

So today, just for you, I made "Quick Anzac Slice".

This recipe appeared in the June 2005 edition of Australian Table.

It is a nice easy one.

Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Lightly grease an 18cm x 28cm slice pan.

In a large bowl, combine

1 cup of rolled oats

1 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup desiccated coconut

3/4 cup plain flour

1/2 cup SR flour

(I don't have any SR Flour, so I made up the total of flour with plain flour and added half a teaspn of baking powder)

Heat 125g butter and 2 tblspns golden syrup in a small saucepan on low until melted together.

make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients. Add butter mixture

and combine well.

Press firmly into prepared pan. Use a glass to press down.

*Sprinkle with 1/4 cup shredded coconut (I didn't, I am not a fan of too much coconut)

Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden. Mine took 23mins

Now here is where the recipe tells you to leave it in the pan until it is completely cool.

You should do this!

I didn't.

Cut into squares and serve.

Because everything looks better on a green plate with white polka dots... Ta-dah!!!!!!
