This Thermomix Anzac Slice is such a simple take on the classic Anzac Biscuit. Pressing it all into a slice tin and baking as one makes it even quicker to get into the oven than forming into biscuits!
Despite the lack of the traditional golden syrup, the flavours of this Anzac Slice are just like the bickies I remember mum making us as kids. They were a cheap and cheerful recipe and she made them often.
Opening my lunchbox at school and seeing one of mum’s Anzacs waiting for me always gave me a smile.
I think everyone that grew up in Australia will have fond memories of Anzac bickies from their childhood. They’re just one of those Aussie classics.
Anzac Biscuits first came about during World War 1. Wives and mothers of Australian and New Zealand troops made them to send to our soldiers.
The traditional ingredients of flour, oats, butter, sugar, golden syrup, bicarb soda and boiling water were shelf stable and survived the long trips on the naval vessels to the troops.
Fun Fact: Traditionally Anzac bickies didn’t contain coconut, yet these days most versions of this Aussie classic do (including this one!)
These days, making Anzacs on or around ANZAC Day, 25 April, is still a tradition in many Australian homes. It is a symbol of respect, commemoration and tradition to those that fought for our lucky country. I love that we do this, passing the tradition on to our children.
I love this Thermomix Anzac Slice, as it tastes like childhood memories for me, but is even better as it’s quicker to get into the oven! Don’t worry, though, I’ve also updated the recipe to include instructions on how to use it to make biscuits!
