Cinnamon rock cakes

This post was inspired by a recent trip to Rye in East Sussex. The weather that day was absolutely bitter - they type of cold that really gets into your bones, so a hot mug of tea and a decent piece of cake are pretty much essential. I stopped in a lovely little cafe but I was in such a rush to get the train back that I didn't pay much attention to the name - whoops! 

Anyway, when I got home I had a urge to bake an enormous batch of rock cakes, loaded with cinnamon and stuffed full of juicy sultanas. Just the thing to accompany a bit of weekend crafting. 

I followed this recipe by the faboulous Dan Lepard, with my own addition of three teaspoons of cinnamon and 175g of sultanas. I didn't go for the chocolate drizzle - just didn't seem right on a rock cake!
