Rock On

These rock cakes are so quick & easy to make, you can have them in your mouth within an hour of thinking, “I’d really like to eat a rock cake right now.” Deliciously crumbly and light, and not too sweet.

The recipe is by Dan Lepard and can be found here in the Guardian. I went for the simple rock cake, with a double whammy of lemon; zest in the cake mix, and an easy lemon icing on top. The recipe made 9 cakes, for the icing mix 40g icing sugar with 1 tbsp of lemon juice & drizzle on your cooled cakes. Yum!

    I’d forgotten about rock cakes. Used to love them when I was a kid. I know what I’ll be doing this weekend

    Made the Gingerbread ones last night. Yummy.
    Had to swap the glace ginger for cherries cos it was all I could find but it worked.

    Just sampled the rock cakes with mr & mrs senior cakes. Overall opinion tasty, texture crumbly and soft. Will certainly be experimenting with different additions but traditional still has alot to offer. Super.
