Rock Cakes

I made these at the request of my boy, who has told me for a little while that he likes these cakey treats, so I thought I’d give them a go.

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 75g caster sugar, plus 1 tablespoon extra
  • 90g cold butter, chopped
  • 160g sultanas
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 125ml milk
