Old recipe makes the best biscuits
AHavelock North home baker will have her prize-winning Anzac biscuits made commercially with proceeds going to the RSA.
Wendy Reading from Havelock North was crowned Best Anzac Biscuit Baker in the Bay by radio station The Breeze.
“I was so surprised that my old recipe that I have used for years took out the best Anzac biscuit in the Bay,” said Wendy.
“I only decided on the morning to do some baking so it was incredibly exciting to find out I had won and it wasn’t just my children that loved my Anzac biccies”.
First prize for Wendy was a Magimix food processor from Total Food Equipment, and the honour of having the biscuits made at Bay Espresso cafes and sold locally to raise money for RSA.
Bay Espresso owner Chris Jarvis said it was such a good opportunity for his business to show its respect to the Anzacs and raise money locally for the RSA.
“Wendy’s entry was a clear leader and after taking the first bite I knew it was a biscuit that would sell well in our stores as we try and make as much money as we can for the RSA.”
The biscuits retail for $2.50 each with $1.50 of the sale going directly to the RSA.
Judges and an RSA spokesman described Wendy’s winning biscuit as tasting “just like his mother used to make”.
The biscuits are available for purchase now throughout Bay Espresso stores until Anzac weekend.
