She who cooks the cake....gets first taste..them's the rules

Half the reason I bake is so I can use the clear dome cover, a pretty plate, and have something delicious looking sitting on the table. It's all about the visual.. Generally I get to appreciate it for maybe 2 days before it's devoured by the passing crowd, but while it's there...it makes me happy.

This afternoon I've made an Anzac Cake, tastes like Anzac Bikkies but...it's a cake.

Recipe is from 'Bring a plate', a little recipe book published in 2016 by Gum Flat Primary School, near Inverell.


125 gram butter

1/2 cup golden syrup

2 cups SR flour

1/2 cup shredded coconut

1/4 cup castor sugar

1 cup milk

2 eggs lightly beaten

For Icing:

1 1/2 cups icing sugar

60 grams melted butter

2 tsp honey

1 tsp vanilla

1 Tbspn hot water (approx)

Extra coconut (optional)


Heat oven to 180 C.

Grease and line a 20 x 30 cm slice tin.

Melt butter and golden syrup . Stir till combined.

In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, and coconut.

Stir in butter mixture.

Combine milk and eggs, and slowly stir into mixture.

Pour into tin, and bake for 25-30 mins.

Turn onto wire rack and cool before icing.

Honey Icing

In a small bowl combine icing sugar, melted butter, vanilla , and enough hot water to make a spreadable icing.

Spread over cooled cake.

I added a sprinkle of coconut.
