Bake Away the ezBoard Blues

This post is dedicated to all the ezBoard readers who are feeling out of touch. I thought of you today as I baked biscuits with my son (that would be ‘cookies’ to most of you!) I thought of you because:

a) when I opened the drawer where my baking paper is kept, I saw all the bits and pieces sitting neatly in zip-lock baggies, and
b) when I reached for the dessicated coconut, it was nicely labelled with a black-on-clear PTouch label.

Both of these organizational wonders are a direct result of me hanging out in the stitching boards… so thankyou… I think 😕 Anyway, the ANZAC biscuits came out great, so if you’re looking for something to do while your favourite board is still chewing up and spitting out your posts, may I suggest:

  • Ingredients
    • 1 cup plain flour
    • 1 cup rolled oats
    • 3/4 cup desiccated coconut
    • 1 cup brown sugar
    • 125g butter
    • 2 tbsp golden syrup
    • 1 tsp baking soda
    • 3 tbsp boiling water
  • Method
    • Combine sifted flour, oats, coconut and sugar in a bowl. Melt butter and Golden Syrup in a saucepan over low heat. Dissolve baking soda in boiling water, then add to the butter and Golden Syrup. Stir this into oats mixture mix well. Spoon tablespoons of mix onto a tray lined with baking paper. Leave plenty of space to allow for spreading. Bake at 150C for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Enjoy!

Not as good as Tim Tams, I grant you, but fabulous anyway. Still in search of something to do? Go check out Browse Happy. Then go stitch :giggle:

  1. desiccated coconut ? what is this?

  2. Hmmm. Never occurred to me that desiccated coconut would go by some other guise elsewhere! (It did occur to me that all my measurements are in metric, and Australian spoon/cup measures to boot… but I wasn’t feeling generous enough to do a conversion :razz:). Does this help at all?

  3. Those Anzac bickies sound delicious, Mel.

    This site is sometimes helpful for alternate names for foods: http://www.foodsubs.com/ Don’t know that it’s much help this time around. I think another name for dessicated coconut could be dried coconut or shredded coconut maybe.
