Rock cakes

biscuits Card 3 sultanas sweet snacks

This is one of those recipes that I'm sure has been around since the dark ages, I know I've been making them like, forever!

While some recipes I've come across include citrus peel, I have always kept mine really simple and added only sultanas. 

Unlike the implication of the title, I have this innate need to make them smooth and rounded.

Rock cakes

  • 1/2 cups self-raising flour
  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup caster sugar
  • 100g butter, chilled & chopped
  • 3/4 cup sultanas
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup milk
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.  Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. 
  2. Sift flours and cinnamon in a large bowl.  Stir in sugar.  Using your fingertips, rub butter into flour mixture until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.  Stir in sultanas.  Make a well in the centre. 
  3. Combine egg and milk in a jug.  Pour egg into well.  Using a butter knife, mix ingredients to form a sticky dough, adding more milk if necessary. 
  4. Spoon 1 1/2 tablespoons of mixture, 5cm apart, onto prepared baking tray.  Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden. 
  5. Stand for 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
