Alexandra Burke’s rock cakes
- 225g self-raising flour
- 110g Asda Best for Baking Cakes Spread
- 75g mixed dried fruit
- 50g caster sugar
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 2tbsp semi-skimmed milk
- 1tbsp Demerara sugar
Preheat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Sieve the flour into a large bowl and, using your hands, rub in the spread until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs.
Add the dried fruit and caster sugar and stir to combine. Gradually stir in the beaten egg.
Put 15 heaps of the mixture onto the baking tray, evenly spaced out – no need to flatten! Brush with the milk and sprinkle with the Demerara sugar.
Bake for 10-15 mins until golden brown. Leave to cool on the tray then serve as a teatime treat.
