Just popping in quickly this morning with an amazing Anzac Day recipe. Today is the day in New Zealand & Australia that we celebrate and remember our soldiers and traditionally this is celebrated with a day off and Anzac biscuits!
Last year I shared my favourite Anzac biscuit recipe but this year I’ve mixed it up a bit with my favourite loaded Anzac slice.
It’s the exact same recipe as the Anzac biscuits but baked in slice form, and with the addition of cranberries, dried apricots and walnuts. And a chocolate drizzle. So good!
It’s the perfect throw together slice – start now and it will be ready for morning tea! It’s chewy, oaty and full of deliciousness thanks to all the delicious extras! And it’s so lazy – everything in one pot, press it into a tin and bake.
Now I’m off to enjoy the sunshine and make the most of my day off…even though after this I only have 3 days of work left until I finish up…eeeek!
Happy Anzac Day everyone!
