Rock Buns


I hope everyone is safe and well. Within the short 2 weeks of circuit breaker in Singapore, we all begin with work from home and home based learning. We all begin learning to wear a mask once you step out of the house, sanitise your hand and at home, start cracking our head planning what to cook, what to eat. You no longer have the luxury to just pop by market or supermarket as and when you like to buy just one item. You are suppose to stay at home! The sad state is seeing empty shelves, not able to get the brand you usually used and while you attempt not going out, you cant get a delivery slot.

So much said, yesterday our PM just announced the circuit breaker extended so another 40 days to go. Bring out all your to~do recipes and bake! Take this opportunity to try new recipes and of coz bake for your family. Well, cakes are now not essential items so what could be better than baking it ourselves. It doesnt like a bad idea afterall!

Rock buns are not new! That’s a recipe in one of the Home Econs text book donkey years ago. I forgot how easy it is to make and how good they are till I saw someone baking it.

(makes approx 20 pieces)
200g plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
100g butter

100g sugar (*note)
100g raisins (*note)

(C) Mix together:
1 egg
3 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla essence (*note)

Method :
1) Sift flour and baking powder, add salt. Rub in butter till fine breadcrumbs.

2) Stir in (B), followed by (C). It should feel a little sticky, but not wet (like muffin).

3) Scoop a tbsp of batter and drop on lined baking pan. Bake in preheated oven 185C ~ 190C for about 15 to 20 mins (last 5 mins I increase temp to 200C for better browning)
