It’s all go at the quarry in the new Thomas & Friends movie 'Blue Mountain Mystery'. Get in to the spirit by making Blue Mountain quarry rocks cakes, and maybe add a dash of blue colouring to make them extra special!

Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6.

Encourage the children to wash their hands and put an apron on. 

Grease two large baking trays. Measure out the ingredients.

Cream butter and sugar together with an electric mixer. Add flour and baking powder and mix. Add milk, egg, water and lemon zest, continue to mix. Add sultanas and mix well.

Dollop even portions of dough (not too close together) on greased baking trays. Sprinkle with demerara sugar.

Bake for 15 minutes or until cooked through. Break one in half to see if it's no longer doughy. Cool on a wire rack and serve warm.
