Rock cakes have always been a favourite in my family. They’re so simple, yet so delicious served with a cup of tea.


Makes: 8 reliable rock cakes

  • 90g butter, at room temperature
  • 90g caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 170g self raising flour
  • 90g fruit, nuts or chocolate
  • glace cherries, to decorate

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C. Grease a non-stick baking tray.
  2. Using an electric whisk, beat together the butter and sugar until you get a thick, icing-like mixture. If you don’t have an electric whisk, just keep going until your arm gives up on you!
  3. Whisk in the egg. Once that’s mixed, stir in the flour and your filling (e.g. raisins, walnuts, chocolate). The mix should be really thick by now and a little sticky.
  4. Using your hands dusted with flour take a walnut-sized balls of the mixture. Roll them around in any leftover sugar you have, then place them on the prepared baking tray. Pop a cherry on top.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes. Once they’ve gone lovely and golden brown, remove them from the oven.
