Anzac day is coming up: At Bake club this week we made a stack of recipes. They included the traditional cookie and a few variations. An Anzac cake with a Maple buttercream filling and a new recipe I’ve written for an Anzac Pecan crumble cake. I think I’ve said this before but I love nuts in my bakes that’s why I’ve added them in here, you could however leave them out, just double the oats.

Bake till golden brown. It will depend on your oven but start checking at 35 mins.
