    These went down really well with the children!! This recipie is very much like the one my mother used to use, and makes delicious Rock Buns! We've also added a little mixed spice and/or cinnamon at different times and they are delicious.  -  08 Mar 2012


    Easy to make, used wholemeal flour, added mixed spice and used molasses as mentioned by other reviewers.  -  17 Feb 2012


    Used different ingredients. Adding a teaspoon of Mixed Spice makes these even better!  -  10 Oct 2010
