Recipe of the Week

Wheat & Dairy Free Cupcakes


5oz Doves Farm Wheat Free Self Raising Flour
5oz sugar
5oz dairy free margarine
2 eggs
2-3 tbsp soya milk

Tip the flour, sugar, margarine and eggs into a bowl and beat together with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy.
Add the milk and beat again for a couple of minutes.
Spoon into muffin cases and bake for about 20 minutes at 180c.

The cakes in the photo above have been topped with a butter icing made by beating together 12oz icing sugar and 4oz margarine. I also added blue food colouring as these were for Alasdair's first birthday.

The cakes in the photo below were made in slightly smaller bun cases and were iced by Calum (7). We almost always have a batch of these in and he likes to put the icing on them. If I know we have visitors coming then I make the fancier looking ones with the piped buttercream.
