Hey Lovelies, 

In our house, we have a very old cookbook. I don’t know where it comes from and my mum can’t even remember now, but it is used by all. Looking at it, it looks a bit like a relic. However, it has come in so handy when you want to make a classic bake. One that the whole family can remember from childhood well into adulthood.

Flicking through it, you would find one page used the most. The page containing the Rock Cakes recipe. It is bent. A little bit torn. I think it may even be falling out on one side. But I love it. It shows me that everyone has used it at one point to enjoy the sweet delights that have graced our home for years.

This special recipe is perfect for a Sunday baking session, as they take little time at all and can be enjoyed with or without an added sweetness such as custard or cream. Perfect for taking to work during the week or making ahead and sharing with others you have coming around this week. They are also a great little reflection of autumn and wintertime.

You won’t even get messy with the recipe below, because it is literally fuss-free…


  • 225g Self Raising Flour
  • 100g Butter
  • 75g Caster Sugar
  • 100g Mixed Dried Fruit
  • 1 Egg (Beaten)
  • 10-20ml (Two – Four Tsp) Milk (Your choice)
  • Optional: You can also add in spices such as cloves, ginger, cinnamon or mixed spice to give it a bit more of a taste lovelies.


  • Mixing Bowl
  • Mixing Spoon
  • Baking Tray
  • Baking Paper
  • Teaspoon
  • Scales


  1. Preheat the oven to 200C or 400F. Grease your baking tray and line with the baking paper. 
  2. Sift the flour into the mixing bowl. 
  3. Rub the butter into the flour until it looks like breadcrumbs. 
  4. Add the sugar, fruit and spices (if you are including them) to the mixture. Stir to combine. 
  5. Add in the egg and the milk. Mix until you have a stiff but combined batter mixture. 
  6. Place around ten spoonsful of the mixture onto your tray. Don’t worry about them looking perfect, they are meant to be messy and rock-like. Remember to leave room between each one too, as they do grow and spread. 
  7. Place in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes. 
  8. One golden and a little hard on the outside, remove and allow to cool on a wire rack. You can also enjoy these warm with custard or on their own. 
  9. Finally, tuck in lovelies!
