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..┬áIt 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)
