Mini rock cakes

Mini rock cakes



  • 1 and a half cups self-raising flour
  • 2 tbsp custard power
  • half a teaspoon mixed spice
  • 100g butter, chopped
  • 1/3 cup caster sugar
  • half a cup sultanas
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • one and a 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar, extra
  • Butter to serve


Preheat oven to 190C.

Sift flour, custard powder and mixed spice into a large bowl.

Rub in butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in sugar and sultanas.

Make a well in the centre. Add egg and enough milk to make a moist dough with a firm consistency.

Spoon level tablespoons of mixture, about 5cm apart on to lightly greased oven tray.

Sprinkle evenly with extra sugar.

Place in oven and cook for approx. 8 minutes, or until lightly brown and fluffy. Loosen cakes, cool on wire racks.

Serve warm or cold with extra butter.


  • Make sure you give the cakes a good sprinkling of sugar as it creates a lovely taste to bite into on top.
  • If you are not a big fan of mixed spice, you can leave it and the rock cakes will still taste delicious!
