Step 1: First up, preheat your oven to 180°C/160°C/Gas Mark 4. Line a large baking tray with baking parchment. Mix together the flour, Baking Powder and sugar in a large bowl. Pop in the butter and rub into the dry ingredients to create a breadcrumb texture. Next up, add the Chocolate Chunks and cherries and mix in.
Step 2: Make a well in the centre and add in the egg, Vanilla Paste and milk. And bring all the mixture together to form a firm dough.
Step 3: Divide the dough into 12 equal pieces roll into balls. Place the balls of dough onto your prepared baking tray spaced slightly apart.
Step 4: Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until risen and golden. Leave to cool on the baking tray for 5 minutes and then pop onto a wire rack to cool completely. Your rock cakes are best served warm; try adding some butter or a dollop of clotted cream for a lovely afternoon treat!
Your rock cakes will keep for up to 5 days, stored in an airtight container.
For a more traditional flavour replace the chocolate and cherries with dried fruit.
