A Must Know Recipe You'll Love | Rock Buns

A Must Know Recipe You'll Love | Rock Buns  

Hello! It has been some time since I have posted here however looks like I am again :) Life can be hectic can't it? I know that's true for me, especially with the way my education at college had been this past year just hectic! 

That is why I am posting this lovely recipe of mine acquired from the years of GCSE Food Technology I participated in in Secondary School. In my previous post I mentioned which can be seen here :Did I Ever Tell You I Took Food Technology? No? that I would be posting these recipes up for you which are modified by me to the way I like to cook them; now being shared with you!
Let's get started!
Rock Buns
(Serves 8)
Ingredients and equipment:
  • 200g Self-Raising Flour
  • Pinch of salt (optional)
  • 100g Caster Sugar
  • 50g Currants/ Raisins/ Mixed fruit/ Chocolate chips (anything you want basically :) )
  • 1 Medium Egg
  • 1/4 Medium Cup of Milk
  • 50g Margarine/ Butter
  • Baking Paper
  • Scissors
  • Large Mixing Bowl and Mixing Spoon
  • Jug and Sieve
  • Baking Tray
Delicious Rock Buns
  1. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees Celsius or Gas mark 7. Cut baking paper to fit baking try and  line with baking paper. If you want take a small amount of cooking oil and place to surface of the baking try to allow the baking paper to stick in place.
  2. Sieve flour and salt into mixing bowl and rub Margarine/Butter into the flour using your fingertips until the mixture resembles bread crumbs (small lumps). If these lumps are very large, shake the bowl back and fourth on the surface to bring all the heavy lumps to the surface and crumble them until they are small.
  3. Once crumbles and mixed, gentle but thoroughly stir in sugar and currants using mixing spoon. Be sure all currants and sugar are thoroughly mixed in to ensure each Rock Bun has the correct amount of currants and flavour when cooked.
  4. Beat the egg in the jug using a folk. When the egg is correctly beaten, it will have many bubbles on the surface Once beaten, add the egg to the mixture in the mixing bowl and mix thoroughly until the mixture resembles a thick paste. If mixture becomes too thick and cannot be moved, add milk a little at a time, stirring it in between intervals.
  5. Using a table spoon, scoop up a heaped spoonful of the mixture and place each spoonful onto baking tray. Be sure to leave a thumb sized space between each bun. Even out the heaps until all the mixture is used up. Place into oven at 220 degrees/gas mark 7 and cook for 15 minutes until golden brown. Once you think the Rock buns are cooked, remove from oven and test the centre to see if they're cooked using a knife. Gently and slowly push the knife through the bun, remove and if the knife is clean with no mixture on it  your Rock buns are cooked and ready to eat!
  6. Remove buns from tray and leave to cool. Once cool enjoy! If you like, add a sprinkle of caster sugar to the tops of the buns for extra flavour.
