Cake trial

I’ve been a bit cake mad recently and I fancied having a go at something a bit different this time.  I have been thinking about some rocky road bars, but didn’t really want to fill my fridge with cooling cake, so I thought ‘how about some rocky road inspired buns?’

It’s a good opportunity to use up small amounts of dried fruit and we have loads of mini marshmallows in the cupboard (after school hot chocolate milk with marshmallows is a favourite drink in our house).

Being a lazy baker I used the all-in-one method for a chocolate sponge mix and then added currants, raisins, sultanas and marshmallows.  It didn’t take very long at all and making these whilst little one is at school means I get to scrape the bowl out!!

Rocky Road Buns

They took about 15 minutes in the oven and the marshmallows melted beautifully. When they came out of the oven they were lovely and gooey!

Needless to say they lasted less than a day. Just the right sort of chocolate treat for a miserable weather day.

Now what should I make next?

Happy baking
