Many years ago I happened to watch the cooking portion of an episode of Better Homes & Gardens just prior to Anzac Day, and Fast Ed was cooking Anzac Day Cake (rather than biscuits). Feeling inspired, I scribbled down the recipe, which is lucky as I haven't been able to track down a recipe on the BH&G website.

caster sugar for dusting
125g unsalted butter
