With Deathly Hallows Part 2 coming out this Friday, there’s NO way I’m missing the chance to make as many Harry Potter related recipes as possible. It’s the end of the era..seven books, eight films..almost done (except for Pottermore, yeah? – maybe it’ll never end!). I spent the past few days rereading the seventh book to prepare myself for the end, although it’ll probably guarantee that I hate the movie (I can never handle the differences between the books and movies!).
I’ve made rock cakes before, but I decided I’d change them up a bit (mostly because I wanted some cinnamon raisin bread, but I was more concerned about doing something HP related) by using yeast instead. These aren’t your traditional rock cakes; you probably wouldn’t find Mrs. Weasley serving these with tea (or Hagrid..but I don’t think any traditional recipe resembles Hagrid’s, either!), but they’re still spot on with the flavor of a rock cake, just a little fluffier. I’m so happy about how these turned out.
