Anzac Cake

    45 minutes

    It's kind of like a lighter, cake version of the biscuits. I think this would be nice with a lemon icing but my neighbour, who made it, didnt have it iced.

    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


    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


    Altered ingredient amounts. Used only three eggs and only 11/2 cups of coconut. Cooked for close to 40 mins.  -  19 Apr 2010
