It lasts well at room temperature so it can be made in advance. Serve it with custard, cream or ice cream.

10. Hagrid’s Rock Cakes

Hagrid’s cakes are notoriously known as cakes that break the teeth and are best to be avoided at all times. Despite that, a classic rock cake is actually rather delicious. Crumbly on the outside and soft and dense on the inside.

If you’re making a Harry Potter party, I recommend making the classic version that is well-loved, over Hagrid’s inedible one! Get the delicious recipe below!

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, then you’ll know I love food boards. In fact, I have a whole blog post dedicated to food boards!
