Mrs. Weasley’s Rock Cakes

Posted on Updated on

 These tea time biscuits are the supposed favorites of Harry Potter.

You don’t need the magic of Mrs. Weasley to make this recipe delicious. Though depending on your skill level in the kitchen, it couldn’t hurt.

You will need:

2 cups (400g) flour
2 tsp (10 g) baking powder
Pinch of salt (optional)
1/2 cup (120 g) butter or margarine
1/2 cup (120 g) granulated sugar
1 cup (120 g) mixed dried fruit (I used dried raisins, cranberries and cherries)
1 egg, beaten
3 Tbsp (45 g) milk
Juice of 1/2 small orange (I used 1/4 c of orange juice)
(Really Mrs. Weasley, I’m just a muggle, I used orange juice.)

 Preheat oven to 425 ºF (218 degrees C)
Lightly grease baking tray or use a non stick baking paper.

Using pastry blender, cut margarine or butter into the flour.
Add sugar, dried fruit.

Stir in egg.
Add milk and just enough juice to make a stiff, sticky consistency.

Put walnut-sized heaps of mixture on baking tray.
Allow them to keep a rough, rocky shape.

Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes or until golden and firm.
Cool completely on rack for flavor to develop.
**To make Hagrid’s rock cakes turn the oven to 450 degree F or 223 degrees C and add 5 minutes to the baking time.**
