Anzac crumble – rediscover a classic

Anzac crumble – rediscover a classic

Anzac biscuits have long been associated with the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) established in World War I. The biscuits were sent by wives and women’s groups to soldiers abroad. With an ingredients list of flour, oats, golden syrup, coconut, sugar, butter, baking soda and no eggs, the biscuits kept beautifully for the long journey by ship overseas.

As popular today as they were almost a hundred years ago, Anzac biscuits have found new appeal as a tasty crumble paired with new season apples and sultanas.

With the addition of a butterscotch sauce, cream or custard, this could adapt beautifully for those on IDDSI Level EC7, 6 or even 5 texture modified diets.
