Rock Cakes Recipe

  British Cakes

2 cups flour
l l/2 teasp baking powder
3 tblsp sugar
4 ounces softened butter
l cup currants
2 beaten eggs
l/4 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Combine flour, baking powder and sugar in a bowl. Cut the butter into small pieces and rub it in until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Stir in the currants, eggs and milk, mixing to form a stiff batter.
Drop rounded tablespoons of the batter onto a well-greased baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake till they are golden in color - about 15 minutes.
Cool them on a rack

In spite of the name, these cakes only become rocklike if left out for several days. Enjoy
