Jackie has shared the recipe to her famous Anzac slice with us. This slice is a variation of the iconic Anzac biscuit that is so popular in Australia, made with oats, coconut and golden syrup. I had the pleasure of enjoying this delicious slice recently and Jackie says that it is so easy and quick to make for any occasion and is a great hit with the kids too.
