Rock Buns

I had a real sweet tooth yesterday but now I live in a world without JUNK FOOD (the closest I get to junk food is wholewheat bread with jam!) my craving had to be cooked from scratch.. It was so worth the effort though…..only 30 minutes after weighing out the ingredients I was enjoying a couple of rock buns, with a blob of mock cream and strawberry jam and a couple of hot cups of British tea!

Rock Buns

  • 8 oz wholemeal/wholewheat flour
  • 4 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon mixed spice/all spice
  • 2 oz margarine
  • 2 oz sugar
  • 2 oz sultanas or dried mixed fruit
  • 1 egg or 1 reconstituted dried egg
  • milk
  • 2 teaspoons sugar for topping

Method

Sift the flour, baking powder and spice

Rub in the margarine

Add the sugar, dried fruit and the egg

Gradually add enough milk to make a sticky mixture

Put spoonful onto parchment paper on baking tray ( makes 12-14)

Sprinkle with the sugar
