Apricot and Sultana Rock Cakes


Apricot and Sultana Rock Cakes


I think my kids are just about out-muffin’d at the moment.  They have chosen to take one in their lunch boxes just about every day since school started, but today they have a couple of different options to choose from.  Yesterday afternoon I spent some time in the kitchen making these Apricot and Sultana Rock Cakes, an old favourite.  There’s no way The Vegemite Kid is going to touch one of these with all of that visible fruit, so I had to do a couple with choc-chips just for him. And they’re nice and soft, so Miss 5’s first loose tooth (Yaaaay!  The Tooth Fairy is Coming!) won’t fall out when she takes a bite.   You don’t have to stick to apricots and sultanas either, I don’t mind cranberries and apple.  I also made a Banana and Apple Oat Slice which I will be sharing very soon over at The Little Lunch Box.

Apricot and Sultana Rock Cakes

1 Cup Wholemeal Self-Raising Flour
