Rock cakes with jam, nutella, honey or even fruit yoghurt – perfect for a midday snack.


  • 225g
  • self-raising flour
  • 75g
  • caster sugar
  • 1 tsp
  • baking powder
  • 180g
  • butter cubed
  • 150g raisins or sultanas
  • 1 free-range
  • egg
  • 1 tbsp
  • milk
  • 2 tsp
  • vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 180C and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  2. Add the flour, sugar and baking powder to a bowl and mix and rub in the cubed butter until it looks like breadcrumbs, then add in the sultanas or raisins.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat the egg, vanilla extract and milk together.
  4. Add the wet mixture to the dry one and stir with a spoon until the mixture just comes together as a thick, lumpy dough. Add a teaspoon more milk if you really need it to make the mixture stick together.
  5. Use a biscuit pastry cutter (size of your choice) to cut pastry into equal sizes and place with space between ( they will flatten) on the baking tray.
  6. Bake for 15 mins, until they are golden on the outside. Allow to cool on a wire rack
