Vegan Fairy Cakes

Fairy Cakes


Shorty's last day of pre-school is tomorrow and they're having a garden party. All the parents were asked to bring something, so I made a batch of vegan fairy cake. There a few kids who, like my daughter, have allergies to either dairy or eggs. These are sweet wee cakes that they can have. I did these in a mini muffin pan.

Cake:

1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup soy milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1tbsp vinegar

Frosting:

1/4 cup Vegan margarine
1 cup powdered sugar
1tsp vanilla extract
2 drops of food colouring

Preheat oven to 180C. For the cakes sift dry ingredients well, and then add all wet ingredients EXCEPT vinegar. Mix well. Once you are ready to put the batter into the tin, add the vinegar and mix in well. This will react with the baking soda and make the cakes fluffy - so be quick! once the tin is full get it right into the oven. Cook for about 10-12 minutes or until going golden.

Frosting:

Cream together the marg and sugar - add more sugar until you get a nice spreadable texture that's not too fatty looking. Add a couple drops of food colouring and blend.

Double the amounts for a regular muffin-sized cake or cake pan.

these look great! Ah! i hope you and your daughter are having fun trying to find creative recipes that don't use milk!

as for those yummy caramel squares...those may be one of the few recipes im too stubborn to give out hehe. ;)

(but hey, maybe ill have a miraculous change of heart and do it one day!)

but just so you know, I only use rice milk or soymilk in any of my recipes on my blog... so if there is some other recipe you may want... let me know!

thanks!
