moon-cakes

A simple favourite perfect for snacks and the lunchbox.

Ingredients

  • 250 g (9 oz/2 cups) self-raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon mixed (pumpkin pie) spice
  • 110 g (3 3/4 oz/1/2 cup) sugar
  • 90 g (3 1/4 oz) unsalted butter, chopped
  • 30 g (1 oz/1/4 cup) sultanas (golden raisins)
  • 2 tablespoons mixed peel (mixed candied citrus peel)
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tablespoons milk
  • 55 g (2 oz/1/4 cup) sugar, extra

Method

Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F/Gas 4). Line two baking trays with baking paper.

Sift the flour and spice into a bowl. Add the sugar and butter. Rub in the butter until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs.

Mix in the sultanas and mixed peel. Make a well in the centre. Add the combined egg and milk and mix to form a soft dough.

Drop tablespoonfuls of dough onto the prepared trays, leaving room for spreading. Sprinkle lightly with extra sugar and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until golden.
