Apple Rock Cakes
8oz self raising flour (or 8oz plain and 2 level teaspoons baking powder)
1 level teaspoon cinnamon
4oz butter or margarine
1 medium cooking apple, about 8oz in weight (this produces about 6oz raw apple)
3oz caster sugar
4oz mixed fruit
2 eggs, size 3
Set the oven to moderately hot, Gas Mark 5 or 375F/190C. Grease 2 baking sheets.
Sift the flour (baking powder if used) and cinnamon together.
Rub in fat until mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
Stir sugar and mixed fruit into rubbed-in mixture.
Peel, core and chop the apple into about 1/2 inch cubes, and add to mixture.
Beat the eggs and stir into the mixture with a fork.
Using two forks or a spoon, put the mixture in rough heaps onto the baking trays.
The heaps should be about 2 inches across and leave 2 inches between since they spread.
Bake in the over for 20-25 minutes until brown.
