Chocolate Chunk Rock Cakes | A Recipe
Large mixing bowl, baking tray lined with baking parchment
325g self raising flour
Pinch of salt
175g light brown soft sugar
200g soft butter
200g chocolate chunks (your favourite chocolate chopped into chunks)
Dash of vanilla
Splash or two of milk
Pre-heat oven to 170 fan.
In a large mixing bowl add the flour, salt and sugar.
Add the butter in small pieces, then use your fingers to combine the butter with the dry ingredients. You should end up with a crumble type mixture. (But don't do this for too long else the rock cakes will be dry.)
Stir in the chocolate.
Make a well in the centre of the bowl and crack in an egg. Add the vanilla and a splash of milk. Give it a little whisk with a fork then combine it into the rest for he mixture. Hands are probably best. (If it is too dry add a little more milk.)
Divide into small balls onto the baking sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes. until lightly golden.
Remove from the oven, allow to cool slightly, then place onto a wire rack.
