Inspect the dwarf to start the quest.

Go to Falador, and talk to any of the three barmaids in the Rising Sun Inn next to the west bank. Ask her about dwarves and ale. She will offer to tell you the secret recipe for Asgoldian ale for the price of 200 coins. If you have the activated ring of charos, charm her (chat option is persuade). She will tell you to add a gold coin to an Asgarnian ale to get an Asgoldian ale. Buy four (4) (or six) Asgarnian ales from her (or go to The Toad and Chicken pub in Burthorpe and pick up the ales for free), then add a coin to each one as per the secret recipe.

Go to the tunnel under White Wolf Mountain (a Camelot teleport or Games Necklace are useful for a short walk). You will see An old Dwarf in the bar area. Talk to him. He will refuse to bake a Dwarven rock cake for you, but he'll mention the Rising Sun Inn.

Use the Asgoldian ales on Rohak. Quickly give them to him to get him drunk, or he will sober up and you will need to get more Asgoldian ales again.

Rohak creates the dwarven rock cake.

He will agree to make you a dwarven rock cake for 100 gold. Give him your bucket of milk, egg, flour, and bowl of water, then put on your ice gloves before taking the rock cake; wearing normal gloves avoids damage but the rock cake still needs to cool. Without any gloves, you'll take damage and the rock cake will drop to the ground, if you've forgotten to equip your ice gloves, you can still pick it up, otherwise it will likely despawn before you can bank and return. If this happens you will need to return to Rohak with all of the ingredients again. You will need to cool it down before you can give it to the Dwarf back in Lumbridge.

If you have ice gloves, picking up the cake cools it immediately. Without ice gloves, you have to kill an icefiend with the rock cake in your inventory. The other option is to leave it in the bank, though you will have to wait several hours for it to cool down. You can find icefiends on Ice Mountain, west of the Edgeville Monastery.
