Hagrid’s Rock Cakes: Lemon Cranberry Scones

Cranberry Lemon Scones - Hagrids rock cakesI wanted to make an edible version of of Hagrid’s Rock Cakes, and immediately thought of scones. The crust of the scone with the soft bread and fruit inside make it the perfect compromise! Funny enough, the first thing my sister said was, “they are too pretty for Hagrid’s cakes!” I do agree… perhaps I will have to try another recipe. For now, these are a fantastic breakfast snack with pops of cranberry decorating the crisp crust of the cranberry and the hint of lemon that lightens the spongy bread within.

Hagrid’s Rock Cakes – Cranberry Lemon Scones

You will need:

  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 Tbs cubed butter (chilled)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 Tbs lemon juice
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup dried cranberries

Instructions:

1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Start by sifting or whisking together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl. Add the cubes of butter, and mash into the dry mix until the butter forms small grains.

2. Mix the milk, lemon juice, egg yolk, and vanilla together in a small bowl and soak the dried cranberries in the mix for 10 minutes. Pour into dry mixture and combine thoroughly.

3. Normally, I would bake a scone as one large cake in a spring-form pan and slice after baking, but for Harid’s rock cakes, you can scoop out spoonfuls onto a sprayed baking sheet, roughly 2 inches apart.

4. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until the tops are lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Allow to cool on a cooling rack and enjoy!

Hello!

Hi! I'm Alyce.
Welcome to my journey towards living a happier and healthier life while living with PTSD and chronic pain... and never letting it keep me from my passion for Halloween, cooking, and way too many DIY projects... all at the same time!

  • I didn't want to say anything, then... or even now. But what someone else decided to do became a part of who I am now. A part of the damage I will always carry. My voice may have been small while I put myself together. Until I learned that the part of me that I am proudest of, the strength in me to overcome, is something you will never take. #metoo
  • Should have known #fridaythe13th would be the PERFECT day to start shooting my next project. You guys... I can't even begin to say how excited I am to share it with you, but for now, a quick peek.
  • Even in death, #pumpkinspice is life! Zombie walks are popping up all around the country, and if you want to wear your costume early as a "zombie" but don't want to actually damage the costume, this basic zombie is perfect! Or for me, it's a casual October Saturday....
  • Do you get to 3pm and feel like a total zombie without a caffeine jolt? Hey, me too! A playful take on the #basic girl, this is a tutorial that can give your costume zombie chic without the wounds and gore. Grab that #pumpkinspice latte and tackle those next few hours like the newly undead!
  • Brains... it's what's for dinner! Damir and I are at a place where he no longer questions brains in the fridge. #relationshipgoals #halloween #brains #brain #sfxmakeup #sfxmakeupartist
  • The easiest surgery recovery! If only I would bounce back from the real surgery as fast... instead of 6 weeks in a sling. This video shows just how easy these gel prosthetics are to remove, as opposed to spirit gum or pros-aid which require remover products.
  • After a year of having an injured shoulder, I am finally going to have surgery! For real... not this tutorial. But it IS inspired by my upcoming surgery, and the tutorial also contains a bit of a PSA on how you need to always keep fighting for your health and find a doctor who will fight with you. A MRI mistake lead to 9 months of additional pain, frustration, and medical costs. I'll get to spend this Halloween relaxing at home (in a sling) watching scary movies! Tutorial on the blog, link in bio!
  • Bruises are a great way to add interest to any Halloween costume, but I actually appreciate them for their behavior based on anatomy. They layers and shape you give your bruise are what can make you average injury go from "ouch" to "wow!" And just a slight change in these layers can show healing, or signs of deathly rot. I love making makeup bruises, mostly because I never recall how I get them in real life... I just run into things a lot apparently. The tutorial is on the blog, link in bio!
  • When you find the perfect coat in a consignment store to play Georgie from IT. But you know me, this coat would be ruined with sfx makeup and $50 was just a bit more than I wanted to spend. #cosplay #it #stephenking #halloweenmakeup #halloween #pennywise #georgie
