Rock Buns

We had a fabulous afternoon at the Cygnet Community Garden on Oct. 11th, with Costa, from Gardening Australia and about 60 people from all over the place. The Cygnet Community Gardeners cooked up a feast. Here’s my rock buns recipe. It is such an old recipe it is in ounces and I like to leave it that way.

It can easily be made gluten free by using half nut meal and half quinoa flour or buckwheat flour.

180°C fan forced

Makes 15 or so

Instructions Ingredients
rub in 4 oz. butter
8 oz. plain flour
2 level tsp. baking powder
1 tsp mixed spice

grated rind 1/2 large lemon
4 oz. mixed dried fruit including some mixed peel /crushed nuts /ginger if you like

add 1 beaten egg
1-2 Tbl. milk and the juice of the lemon to make a stiff, crumbly mixture

Place spoonsful on a greased baking tray and cook 10-15 mins.

Leave 5 minutes before removing from the tray.
