Elliot Spolc’s giant chewy Anzac biscuit was a big hit, making it all the way to the regional final of The Land CWA Cookery Competition earlier this month.
The Wentworth Falls youngster said he followed the recipe “really carefully”. Competition rules stated the biscuit must be 8cm in diameter and he submitted a 10cm beauty.
“I did the exact recipe,” the nine-year-old said.
“I had a practice and it was very chewy.”
Elliot placed second in the regional final, behind Charli Pride from the CWA’s Glenbrook branch.
Elliot is no stranger to the kitchen; he takes great delight in making his own delicious creations.
Lately he’s been experimenting with pikelets, trialling peanut butter fudge syrup in the mix, and melted chocolate and honey on other occasions.
He’s also enjoying making a combination raspberry, strawberry, blueberry and blackberry smoothie and chocolate smoothie with vanilla extract.
Elliot is one of the longest serving children to enter the cooking competition, competing over the past four years.
In 2015 he made it to the state finals with his crunchy top lemon loaf.
Elliot competes under the CWA Leura branch banner.
Other Leura branch second prize winners at the regional finals were: Rosemary French for her jam, Donna Latter for her cake and Pat McKeown for her moist coconut cake.
