Similar to scones, these are great for teaching children how to cook and have fun in the kitchen. They look like little rocks but certainly shouldn't taste like them. This makes quite a big batch so you might want to halve the recipe or freeze some of them!
mixture is very runny and decided to rise outwards rather than upwards hence a very large rock cake. very difficult to mix even with an electric whisk. would not recommend to anyone. i tried this recipe as an alternative to scones but it has backfired greatly, i think i'll stick to scones! - 08 Oct 2011
Made these as per instructions. Added mixed fruit and cherries instead of sultanas. Came out too wet. Needed less water. When cooked they became smooth cakes not rock cakes. - 23 Feb 2012
Omg! This recipe makes way more than 20 rock cakes, would have been better to use a bucket to mix it in because my bowl wasn't big enough! Rock cakes are currently in the oven all joining together into one big concrete slab! - 27 Jan 2012
