I felt it was time for a revival! Rock cakes are awesome, right? You don’t need anything on them or with them, they stand alone as a delicious little cake, full of flavour and, as my memory serves me, satisfying. Traditional recipes has mixed spices and mixed fruit & peel. My own version has just raisins, a small amount of nutmeg, a good dose of cinnamon, some cherries and my own unique addition, a sprinkling of mixed chopped nuts to give them a bit of edge. They’re great, don’t stray too far from tradition and are easy to make.
These will keep in a cake tin for 2 to 3 days. They won’t last that long!
