Anzac Cake

1 Comment

Here is a recipe for a cake which is loosely based on the ingredients used in the iconic Anzac biscuits.  I found it here thanks to Tania.  It came from this blog which I have added to my regular reads.  Anyway, back to the cake……


1/2 cup Golden Syrup

125 grams butter

2 cups self-raising flour

1/2 cup castor sugar

1/2 cup coconut (shredded or dessicated your choice)

2 eggs, lightly beaten

1 cup milk


Combine Butter and Golden Syrup in a saucepan, stir over heat until smooth.

Combine sifted flour, sugar and coconut in a large bowl.

Add syrup mixture and mix well.

Using an electric beater gradually beat in the combined eggs and milk.

Pour mixture into a prepared 20x30cm cake tin and bake at 180 degrees Celsius for approximately 30 minutes.

When done the cake will look a lovely golden colour.


60 grams butter (softened)

1 teaspoon honey

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/2 cups icing sugar

1 tablespoon hot water

Beat all ingredients together.  Spread over cake and sprinkle with more coconut.

Here is the finished product.

This definitely a winner in my opinion.
