Joseph loves getting in the kitchen with me but we simply do not always have the time. I usually do my baking while he is busy at school. But we have started the long weekend with a bit of Easter themed baking.
We have replaced the traditional ingredient of dried fruit with a more yummy, Easter ingredient. Chocolate! Well chocolate mini eggs to be precise!
This is what we did...
250g Self raising flour
75g Caster sugar plus a little extra for dusting
75g Butter, cubed
75g Mini eggs
Pre heat the oven to 180C
1 - Place the flour in a large mixing bowl and add the butter
2 - Rub the butter into the flour with your hands until you have a breadcrumb consistency
3 - Add the eggs, sugar and mini eggs and mix together with a spoon or as I always find easier with your hands!
4 - Form 12 rock cakes with the mixture and place on a lined baking tray
5 - Place in the centre of the pre heated oven and bake for 15 minutes
6 - Remove from the oven and transfer to a cooling rack to cool down
