Better Homes And Gardens, a new take on an old classic.
- 1 cup plain flour
- 2⁄3 cup sugar
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup desiccated coconut
- 100 g butter
- 1⁄4 cup golden syrup
- 1⁄2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
- 1 tablespoon hot water
- Preheat the oven to moderate 180°C Line a shallow 28 x 18cm tin with aluminium foil; brush with oil or melted butter.
- Sift flour and sugar into a large mixing bowl. Add oats and coconut; make a well in the centre.
- Combine butter and golden syrup in a small pan. Stir over low heat until butter has melted and mixture is smooth; remove from heat. Dissolve soda in water; add immediately to butter mixture and stir until foamy. Add to dry ingredients and stir until well combined.
- Spread mixture into prepared tin, pressing firmly with the back of a spoon to smooth surface. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown. Cool in tin then, using foil, lift out and cut into squares.
- Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
All my favourite ingredients and all pantry staples and a breeze to whip up - what's not to love !!! I added some sultanas and the result is wonderful.
