Rock cakes from 1927

These spicy little cakes are one of Hagrid’s favourites in the Harry Potter series and are a great accompaniment to a cup of hot tea.


1/2 lb or 225gm self raising flour (or plain/all purpose flour and 1tsp of baking powder)

3oz or 90gm each of unsalted butter


chopped currants, sultanas or raisins (or a mix)

one egg

1/2-1tsp nutmeg

1 egg and 2 teaspoons of milk mixed together

This recipe makes 10-12 cakes


Preheat your oven to 220 degrees C  or 425 degrees F

Rub the flour and butter together until they look like breadcrumbs.

Add all of the other dry ingredients and mix well.

Add about half of the egg/milk mix and mix well. If it’s too dry add the rest of the mixture and form into a stiff dough. Use your hands! It’s OK to get messy in the kitchen.

Form into rough balls and place on a baking tray covered in baking paper.

Bake for 20 minutes or until they’re golden on top.
