Anzac Cake

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. 

melted butter for greasing
caster sugar for dusting
125g unsalted butter
250g golden syrup
6 eggs
120g self raising flour
120g rolled oats
150g dessicated coconut
80g icing sugar

Preheat oven to 170c,line and grease a 23cm round cake tin,dust with caster sugar.

Melt butter and golden syrup in small pan over a low heat.Set aside to cool slightly,then beat in eggs.

Combine flour,oats,coconut and icing sugar in a bowl,stir in butter mixture.Spoon into prepared tin and bake for 20-25 mins or until a skewer inserted in centre comes out clean.

It being Anzac Day today, I decided to whip one up!
