Similar to scones, these might look like little rocks but certainly don'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 (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
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 (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
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 (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
