2 cup  all-purpose flour
2 tsp  baking powder
1 pinch  salt
1/2 tsp  ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp  ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp  ground cloves
1/4 cup  cold butter, cut in small pieces
1/4 cup  solid vegetable shortening, cut in pieces
1/3 cup  raisins (plumped)
1/3 cup  chopped walnuts
2/3 cup  packed light brown sugar
1   lemon peel , grated
1 large  egg, lightly beaten
1 - 2 Tbsp  milk
 
a staple at english boarding schools, these individual cakes are served 
with 
afternoon tea. 
they don't keep well; after a day they take on the characteristics of 
"rocks". 
 
preheat oven to 400f (205c). grease a large baking sheet; set aside. sift 
flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves into a large bowl. 
with your fingers, rub in butter and shortening until mixture is crumbly. 
stir in raisins, walnuts, brown sugar, and lemon peel. add egg and just 
enough milk to make a stiff dough. drop tablespoonfuls of dough 2 inches 
apart on baking sheet. bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. 
transfer to a wire rack to cool. serve fresh. makes about 15 rock cakes.
