Easy Meals - Rock Cakes...rock

 ***These are going to be on our list for next week cooking - we always do a bit of baking during school holidays***

Recently we tried out our new oven by making rock cakes...they didn't last long.

Rock cakes are great to make with children and something my mum introduced to us (& Bubba). It's a proper get stuck in and get messy mixture which is perfect for little hands and you can't really go wrong, you mix it all together and put your rocks on the baking tray.

Here is the recipe:

8oz Plain Flour
3oz unsalted butter (or margarine)
3oz Sugar
3oz currants or sultanas
1 egg
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon mixed spice
4-5 teaspoons milk

Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and mixed spice into a bowl. Rub in the butter and then add sugar, raisins and the egg (whisked). Add the milk until it's a fairly stiff (but still gooey) consistency. 

Put your rock like mounds onto a greased baking tray (don't go too smooth as they need to look rocky). Bake for around 20 mins (gas mark 7).

This is how I enjoyed mine
