Triple Chocolate Rock Cakes

My mum always made lovely rock cakes. They seem to have gone out of fashion these days, which is a shame. The great thing about them is you don’t have to be too precise. 


  • 225g gluten-free flour mix A
  • 2 teaspoons gluten-free baking powder
  • 115g salted butter
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 80g caster sugar
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 100g juicy sultanas
  • 20g chopped milk chocolate
  • 20g chopped bitter chocolate
  • 20g chopped white chocolate
  • 2 eggs

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6. Line two baking sheets with greaseproof paper.
  • Rub the flour mix, baking powder, butter and xanthan gum together in a bowl, taking care not to overwork the mixture. Stir in the sugar, orange zest, sultanas and all the chocolate.
  • Add the eggs and bring together to form a dough – clean hands are best for this job. Pile 12 equal-sized mounds on to the prepared baking sheets – no need to be too neat here.
  • Bake for 15–20 minutes. Do not overcook. Remove from the oven and leave to cool.
