Description

As it’s April, it’s the obvious time to launch our Anzac biscuits. They commemorate the sacrifice of the Australia New Zealand Army Corps on the Turkish Gallipoli Peninsula. The troops first landed on 25th April 1915, which would come to be remembered ever more as ‘Anzac Day’. They were finally evacuated on 9th January 1916. By that time, more than 130,000 men had died: at least 87,000 Ottoman soldiers and 44,000 Allied soldiers, including more than 8700 Australians and 2779 New Zealanders, about a sixth of all those who had landed on the peninsula.

The story goes that Australian and NZ women made these biscuits to send out to their men. The use of golden syrup as a binder instead of egg gave a longer shelf-life. We know biscuits were shipped to the serving men in boxes because ANZAC officers were photographed (above) sitting on a biscuit box. However, it was the nineteen-twenties before the recipe was first published.
