ANZAC Day is fast approaching and for those of you not in Australia, ANZAC Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand held on the 25th April each year, that broadly commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders "who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations" and "the contribution and suffering of all those who have served."
This slice is a twist on the traditional Anzac Biscuit I have previously featured on here.
What I really love about this slice is that it has a lovely chewy caramel texture and it's super easy.This one is perfect if you are looking for that sweet baked treat to enjoy with your cider. It's also a great way to use up that odd bottle of cider you may have floating around in your fridge. For this recipe I used Stassen Apple Cider.
Cider ANZAC Slice
An Original recipe by The Food Mentalist
165g rolled oats
220g SR flour
100g moist shredded coconut
170g brown sugar
50 ml apple cider
185g unsalted butter
1 tbs golden syrup
Preheat oven to 170C. Line a 20x30cm lamington dish or pan with baking paper.
Combine oats, flour, coconut and sugar in a bowl and mix. Meanwhile, melt butter and golden syrup over a low heat. Once melted, add cider and stir through.
Pour butter & cider mixture into a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and fold through until the mixture is combined.
Spoon mixture into lamington pan and press down with the back of a fork. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown on top.
Wait until the slice has cooled before cutting it into squares.
Serve with a nice cuppa.
