On the 25th of April each year on Anzac Day, all of Australia honours and remembers our men and women who served and lost their lives in military and peacekeeping service. If you’re joining a Dawn Service, why not pack some Anzac biscuits to share at the gunfire breakfast or picnic afterwards. Or just make them to enjoy at home!

These hardtack army biscuits have been part not only of the Anzac tradition but also of every Aussie household, with Anzac biscuits recipes handed down from generation to generation in every family. Anzac biscuits are enjoyed all-year round, of course, but take on special meaning on Anzac Day. (They are quite popular for fundraisers, too!)

“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.”

This particular Anzac biscuits recipe came from one of our team members at Kitchen Warehouse North Lakes where they are serving these delicious biscuits today to commemorate Anzac Day.

  1. Step 3 of the instructions says to add the butter, however, butter is not in the list of ingredients .
    Can you please advise how much butter to use.

  2. Think you forgot to put Butter in the ingredients list, lol! Had to go back to my old faithful recipe.

    1. So sorry about that, Dianne! Amended the recipe and hope you can give it a try next time!

  3. Just to let you know that you have missed out the quantity of butter in your list of ingredients – it should be 125g of butter.

  4. There is no butter in the ingredient list yet it says to melt the butter and golden syrup..
    how much butter pls?

  5. We are very sorry, butter was inadvertently omitted! It’s 125g butter. Thank you and hope you enjoy the recipe!

  6. I so loved the picture you posted at the beginning of the recipe. Thank you. I will print this recipe as a reminder of the lovely words we say each Anzac Day about those who went to fight and did not return. I hope Anzac Day will continue as a tradition and feel so sad for our soldiers today who take death by their own hand rather than live the life we offer them after their service.

  7. Please let us not forget ANZAC is Australian & New Zealand. These biscuits were made by both

  8. Great Recipe, my whole family loved them. Will most definitely be making them again. Thank you.

  9. I’ve always had trouble with ANZAC biscuits spreading too much and ending up very flat. I tried this recipe this year and they were perfect. Thank you!
