Rock Cakes

INGREDIENTS

  • 225g Self-raising Flour
  • 75g Caster Sugar
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 125g Butter
  • 150g Dried Fruit
  • 1 Eggs
  • 1 tbs Milk
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4 and line a baking tray with baking parchment.

Mix the flour, sugar and baking powder in a bowl and rub in the cubed 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.

Place golfball-sized spoons of the mixture onto the prepared baking tray. Leave space between them as they will flatten and spread out to double their size during baking.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden-brown. Remove from the oven, allow to cool for a couple of minutes then turn them out onto a wire rack to cool.
