Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4 and lightly oil a non-stick baking sheet. Rub together the butter and flour with your fingertips to fine breadcrumbs (or pulse in a food processor). Stir in the rest of the ingredients until you have a soft dough.
  2. Drop 8 tbsp or 16 heaped tsp of the dough on to the baking sheet, spacing out well. Bake for 18-20 mins until golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool and dust with plenty of icing sugar. Pack into an airtight container or gift jars.

Mine also came out quite spongy, delicious also but not the texture I was expecting

I made these to use up left over cranberries after christmas. As previously stated, more like cake than rock bun but very moorish and very popular!

I made these in hope of having some real rock buns, they were more like little cakes though, very soft. Very nice flavour, just not what I had hoped for!
