Today we made rock cakes. They’re not the prettiest of cakes but they taste good and are loads of fun to make.
To make them you will need:
225g Self raising flour
75g Caster Sugar
1tsp Baking Powder
125g Unsalted Butter
150g Dried Fruit
1 Tbsp Milk
2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
Mix the flour, sugar and baking powder in a bowl and rub in the butter until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs, then mix in the dried fruit.
In a clean bowl, beat the egg and milk together with the vanilla extract.
Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients and stir with a spoon until the mixture just comes together as a thick, lumpy dough. Add a teaspoon more milk if you really need it to make the mixture stick together.
Then divide the dough into small golf ball sized pieces and put on a greased tray.
Put in the oven at 180 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown.
Leave them to cool and dust with icing sugar .
Then enjoy either on there own or with some jam and clotted cream.
