Anzac Slice

Recipe from Lesley Palmer (family friend)

I love this recipe. It is full of spirit from Anzac day and is very wholesome and filling. It is very similar in regards to ingredients to Anzac biscuits (also featured on my blog); however, it is just displayed differently - in slice form. A beautiful enhancer of this hearty snack is lemon icing. The sour flavour of lemons compliments this oat filled slice perfectly. I really love this combination. I thank my friend for sharing this recipe with me from all those years ago. I still use it every year (along with Anzac biscuits) to commemorate the Anzac troops hard work in Galipolli. Lest we forget.

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1 tblsp golden syrup, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 113g margarine, melted

Beat together. Spread evenly in a bake tray, lined with non-stick baking paper. Cook for 20-25 minutes at 180'C fan forced. When cool ice with lemon icing (optional). For lemon icing recipe, see Icing and Sauces Page on Blog.


  1. These really look delicious. I hope you have a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary

  2. I've never seen Anzac as a slice rather than a cookie. Love any recipe that saves me time/trouble =D. Looks delish!
