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.)
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.**
