  • 200g Self raising flour
  • 75g Margarine
  • 75g Caster sugar
  • 50g Chocolate chips
  • 1 egg
  • 1-2 tbsp water


    1. Set oven to 210 C / gas mark 7. Grease a baking tray
    2. Sieve the flour into a mixing bowl
    3. Cut the margarine into cubes and then rub into the flour using your fingertips. The mixture should then resemble breadcrumbs
    4. Add the sugar and chocolate chips into the mixture. Mix using a wooden spoon
    5. Break egg into a small bowl and beat with a fork. Add egg to mixing bowl and mix. Add 1 - 2 tbsp of water if the mixture does not stick together. The mixture must be firm enough to stand alone on the baking tray in lumps.
    6. Place heaps of the mixture on the tray. Make sure that they are all an even size. Bake them for approximately 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

I made these rock cakes with sultanas - they're the nicest I've tasted, light and crumbly, I'll be making somemore tomorrow!

The picture you have has sultanas on it and not chocolate chips. What you should put is the picture of your recipe, to see what it really looks like. It would help.

Do the rock buns taste nice with chocolate chips?
