Rock cakes are a light, crumbly tea-time favourite. Eat while they are still warm from the oven. So easy to make, and lots of fun for children to join in too. 

Shopping List.

2 cups (250g / 8oz) self raising flour sifted or use plain flour with a teaspoon of baking powder.

90g (3oz) butter 

1/2 cup (125g / 4oz) of sugar

1/2 cup (95g / 3oz) mixed dried fruit 

1 egg

3 tablespoons of milk 


  1. Preheat the oven to moderately hot 200*c (400*c/Gas 6). 
  2. Place the flour in a large bowl and add your sugar & dried fruit into it
  3. Rub the butter into the mixture with your fingertips until it’s fine and crumbly. 
  4. Whisk your egg into the milk and add to the mixture until it forms a dough. 
  5. Spoon in small heaps (flatten it with the edge of your palms) onto greased baking trays. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until it’s golden brown.
  6. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. 
  7. Serve with a cup of tea or ice cream. 

Please Note: The texture should be a thick, lumpy dough – don’t be tempted to add too much liquid.
