    So delicious and so simple. Thank you very much for the recipe, I can't imagine I'll ever make rock cakes without the Thermomix now.

  • I made these, and they were

    I made these, and they were lovely. I substituted currants for the mixed fruit, as the only things I really like dried peel in are fruit cake and marmalade. They came out really nice.

    Next time, though, I'd have my butter a little warmer (it stuck to the edges of the bowl and didn't want to mix) and I wouldn't bother rolling the dough in sugar, they're already sweet enough (even though it did give them a nice colour/crunch).

    Very god recipe!
