Rock Buns

Little C and I made rock buns together.  I'd let you have a taste, but I'm afraid that there aren't any left - a combination of Little C, Big C and me, well... they didn't last all that long.  I was brave enough to offer one to a guest though, even though I did feel the need to warn them that a toddler had had his paws in the mixture all the way through the process.  Actually, I didn't mind him grabbing at the margarine and raisins/sultanas all covered in flour, but I was a teensy bit concerned at munching on the mixture once I'd added the egg.  I decided though that I had licked out enough baking bowls and spoons in my childhood, many with raw egg in, and I'm pretty sure I came out OK at the end of it - debatable I know!

Here's the recipe for the rock buns:

Ingredients - 200g self raising flour, 100g margarine, 100g sultanas or raisins or currants (whatever you have), 100g caster sugar, 1 egg, 30ml milk.

  1. Rub the flour and margarine together.
  2. Stir in the sugar and fruit and then the egg.
  3. Add the milk a little at a time until the mixture sticks together and is a little soggy.
  4. Spoon the mixture in heaps on a baking tray (I needed 2 trays) and bake for 20-25 minutes at 160 degrees C.
As you can see licking the bowl was a very important part of the process!

Afterwards he also stood on his little steps and "helped" with the washing up.  The floor was underwater, but he thoroughly enjoyed that too.
