Recipe // Dairy and Soya Free Rock Cakes

I love rock cakes. They are probably my ultimate nostalgic food; they remind me so much of my childhood. We used to roller skate along to the cafe near the Peace Statue in Hove at the weekend, no matter what time of year, and stop off for a hot chocolate and rock cake.

We were given a yummy, basic chocolate sponge recipe to work from, which was very easy to follow. You can find the recipe over on the Huffington Post here. It gave Busby the opportunity to do lots of counting, weighing and measuring! We had fun putting the  ...
