Warm, straight out of the oven Rock Cakes are just so delicious.
I have been exploring older recipes of late.
The kinda recipes my Granny used to make my mum
and my mum made me...
Thought I would make the girls some...
They sure love helping bake but I think it's the
licking of the beaters that gets them in...umm umm..
I used to love that part too when I helped my mum.
Warm straight out of the oven.... so yummy soft...
not the usual rock hard.. ha ha... hence the name
I usually time them for afternoon tea, occasionally for breakfast
adding a few spices like cinnamon and cherries
when having them on a Sunday morning.
Hope you enjoy then like I do...
Rock Cakes (yeilds 20)
To a large bowl add 180gm sugar add to it
480 gm Self Raising Flour and 120gm Butter,
rub together to resemble fine breadcrumbs.
Make a well in the centre
and add 2 eggs, a pinch of cinnamon, 1tsp Vanilla essence
160ml milk and 120gms sultanas
(any fruit will do, like currants cherries etc).
The mixture will be sticky.
Place heaped tablespoonfuls on a lined baking tray and
bake in oven on 180C for 15-20mins...
I usually watch them after 12mins to make
sure they look golden and not too dark.
Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve warm...
