Rock Cakes

A second part of my heritage that I tried to connect with through an ethnic dish was my English/British heritage. Rock cakes seem to be a kind of British scone and aren’t actually hard like rocks. Even though the recipe I chose (found here : http://recipes.epicurean.com/recipe/21255/rock-cakes.html) called for currants, I chose to use orange-flavored cranberries instead. Here are some pictures from the baking process:

About to go in the oven!

All done!

As with the Soda Bread, making these Rock cakes didn’t do much to connect me to anything. These ones did come out pretty good (if I do say so myself) but that didn’t help connect me to British culture in any way.
