Yesterday was one of those days. Lockdown + boredom = baking motivation! I rose from the sofa after having scrolled around my YouTube notifications with indifference for a while, and decided I really rather fancied some rock cakes – easy to bake and delicious! However, after rifling through my baking cupboard, I discovered I only had plain flour. Thinking laterally, I googled “gluten-free raisin cookies” and found Jamie Oliver’s Oat & raisin cookies recipe. Luckily, I had some oats!
The recipe was really easy to follow. The only substitution was semi-skimmed milk instead of buttermilk. I made 16 instead of 20, so they took a little longer to bake.
Yum! The cookies were delicious. They were crunchy on the outside and softer in the middle. With the perfect spicing and with the oats giving them a bit of body, I would highly recommend this recipe for a quick, crowd-pleasing bake. And in the end, they were pretty much the same as rock cakes!
