Jane asked me to share my Anzac biscuit recipe so here it is.

It's adapted from the recipe in the Edmonds Cookbook which can be found on the majority of NZ kitchens.

When I embarked on my OE in the late 70's, a copy accompanied me on my travels and although this is from a more recent edition, it is still well used.

It is really good with added chopped fruit and nuts - raisins, dehydrated apple, cranberries, choc chips and/or walnuts.

If you prefer crunchy rather than chewy biscuits, reduce the heat and bake for longer.

They also freeze well.  I often make a double batch, form and free flow freeze them. I can then take out half a dozen and pop them into the oven if unexpected guests drop in for a cup of tea.

here's another favourite cake recipe.

don't allow the sugar to dissolve, make the topping as soon as the cake comes out of the oven and spoon it over the cake while it is still warm.

the sugar will stay as a crunchy layer over the top and you can remove the sugar if you wish

there is a video in this thread on making ruggelach that uses jam instead of the nuts and raisins version that I've always used

https://permies.com/t/107053/kitchen/Nutty-bake-Fruitcake

here's the recipe that I use. Another recipe that I make in batches and freeze, saves us from eating the lot all at once.

anyone else got recipes for their favorites that they'd like to share?
