Harry Potter: Rock Cakes

Yet another Harry Potter influenced post, this time influenced by the mention of Rock Cakes when Harry and Ron first have tea with Hagrid at his hut in “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone”. However unlike Hagrid’s, these ones are guaranteed NOT to nearly break your teeth!

Rock Cakes

2 cups self raising flour

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

90g butter

1/3 cup caster sugar

1 cup sultanas

2 tablespoons mixed peel (you can replace this with sultanas  if you are not a mixed peel fan)

1 lightly beaten egg

1/2 cup of milk

1) Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Sift flour and cinnamon together in a large bowl and rub in butter. stir in sugar and fruit

2) add beaten egg then enough milk to give a moist but firm consistency

3) place 2 level tablespoon portions of mixture on a lightly greased baking tray about 5 cm apart. Sprinkle with extra sugar if you wish.

4) bake in oven for about 15 minutes or until browned, loosen cakes and cool on trays.
