Rock Cakes

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by JustJanS

I'm posting these for a request. My mum used to make them, but I've never made them-only eaten them! The directions say a "quick oven". I can only guess what THAT means;-) and whilst these are called cakes, they are more like cookies.

My mother would have known exactly what temperature a "quick" oven is, but the best I can do is search waay back in my memory. I think it is about 375*F--don't know what that would be in Celsius.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream butter and sugar, add the egg and beat well.
  2. Sift in the flour and spices, add the fruit and begin to add as much milk as you need to make a STIFF dough.
  3. Divide with a fork, and place small pieces on a greased biscuit tray.
  4. Bake in a quick oven for 15 minutes.
  5. *Ican only guess a quick oven would be 200-220c.
