Food Monday ~ Rock Buns

Today I take a trip down memory lane..  It is a very long lane.
52 years ago this week, I had my very first official cookery lesson.  I had been cooking and helping in the kitchen at mammy’s side for many years before that.

This first lesson was at school.  Today I reproduce that recipe.

Rock buns.
Preheat the oven to 200°C

225g self raising flour
Pinch salt
100g butter
75g mixed dried fruit
25g mixed candied peel
50g caster sugar
1 egg size 3
Milk to mix

Mix the flour and salt and rub in the butter.
Stir in the dried fruit, mixed peel and sugar.
Mix to a stiff dough with egg and milk.
Place in rough spoonfuls on a greased baking sheet
Bake for 10-15 minutes.

Do you have an early memory of cooking?
