Anzac biscuits are oat-based biscuits that are an Australian tradition. I think this would be nice with a light lemon icing but my neighbour, who made it, didn't ice it.

This cake is fabulous. I used the 6 eggs and it was just wonderful. Easy and tastes like a big Anzac Cookie....YUM........Thanks for sharing!-15 Apr 2012(Review from this site AU | NZ)
I really wanted to try this but couldnt come at the 6 eggs - so I looked around and saw versions of this recipe with anything from 2-6 eggs in it so I went for halfway (3 eggs) and its fine. I added probably 2 tablespoons of milk to make up for the liquid. Its very coconutty, moist and kind of like a big fluffier version of the biscuits Took longer to cook- [probably closer to 40 than 25 minutes.-21 Apr 2010(Review from this site AU | NZ)
