Rock Cakes

2 cups self-raising flour
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
90g butter, softened
1/3 cup castor sugar
1 cup sultanas (I always add more)
2 tablespoons mixed peel
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoons castor sugar, extra
  1. Sift flour and cinnamon into large bowl.  Rub in butter.  Stir in sugar and fruit.  
  2. Stir in egg, and enough milk to give a moist but firm consistency.
  3. Place 1/2 tablespoon portions of mixture into balls on a lightly greased baking tray about 5cm apart.  Sprinkle tops with extra sugar.
  4. Bake in a moderate oven for about 15minutes or until browned.  Loosen cakes and cool on trays.  (If you like them a little crunchier, an extra 2-5minutes should be enough)
