Susie's Apricot and Orange Rock Cakes

My mum (the Susie in the title) makes the best recipes. As I have so many allergies she has been inventing recipes all my life. And now my son is allergic to soya (the one thing I can eat and live on) she has come up with even more.  Her rock cakes are amazing! So here's the recipe:

8oz plain flour
4oz Vitalite or similar
2tsps baking powder
3oz caster sugar
1/2tsp mixed spice
4oz snipped apricots
Juice of a large orange

1. Mix flour, baking powder and marg to make breadcrumbs.
2. Add sugar and combine.
3. Add orange juice and apricots and mix to a fairly thick but not smooth mixture.
4. Heap onto a paper lined baking sheet. Tip: if you have never made rock cakes before, they should be 'lumpy' and not smoothed out or you'll have cookies).
5. Bake for 10-15 minutes at 200C.
