Rock Cakes

Rock Cakes

Rock cakes are a small hard fruit cake with a rough surface. I think they are like a cross between a cake, a scone and a biscuit.
Crunchy outside, soft inside and packed full of dried fruits like sultanas, raisins, orange or lemon peel etc

They are perfect with a cup a tea or in the school lunchbox for a morning tea filler.


2 Cups Self Raising Flour
1/3 Cup Caster Sugar
1 Cup of Sultanas or a mix of dried fruits
1/4 Cup Desiccated Coconut

2. In a medium bowl mix the flour, sugar, coconut and dried fruit together.
