How to make rock cake:
These cakes are an absolute tea-time stand-by. They are inexpensive and easy to make but are scrumptious.


Rock cakes
8oz plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3oz butter
2 heaped tablespoons sugar
1 egg, well beaten
2 tablespoons milk
3 heaped tablespoons currants or sultanas
(see measure conversions for more information)


- Rub the butter into the flour.
- Add the dry ingredients.
- Beat in the egg and the milk (the mixture should be stiff).
- Pile heaps of the mixture (apporx. 1 tablespoon) onto a greased baking tray.
- Bake in a fairly hot oven (about 210 degrees C.) for 15-20 minutes.
