The traditional filling is silverbeet, but we've added kale and fresh herbs for fragrance and flavour. A good sprinkle of salt at the end and a squeeze of lemon are non-negotiable. Start this recipe a day ahead to rest the dough.

Method

  • 01
  • For Anzac biscuit topping, preheat oven to 180C. Stir flour, sugar, oats, and both coconuts in a bowl to combine and make a well in the centre. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat with treacle and golden syrup, add 2 tbsp cold water and stir until combined (1-2 minutes), then stir in bicarbonate of soda (1-2 minutes; be careful, mixture will froth up). Stir treacle mixture into dry ingredients. Shape mixture into a large 25cm disc on a baking tray lined with baking paper and refrigerate to chill and firm (at least 30 minutes).

  • For stewed ginger apples, combine ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat with 2 tbsp of water and stir occasionally until apples are tender (10-12 minutes). Spoon into pie dish or baking dish with a capacity of about 1-1½ litres, cover with Anzac biscuit topping, pushing sides into dish to enclose and bake until topping is golden brown and crisp and apples are tender and bubbling (15-20 minutes). Dust with icing sugar and serve hot with scoops of vanilla ice-cream or custard.
