Fairy cakes are one of the first things I learnt to bake and now they are my quick and easy go-to bake with the kids. There is very little work to make these and about 15 minutes in the oven, your sweet treat is ready to go.
One thing I love about them though is not only are they easy, you can also adapt the recipe to change the flavours up. So if you fancy coconut cake or even chocolate cakes, just a simple tweak to the recipe and you have them!
Then if you decide to get fancy with them and add icing, sprinkles or even turn them into butterfly cakes, that is down to you. I prefer mine with a lovely cup of tea and 5 minutes of peace!
Top tip – To change these from plain fairy cakes to either chocolate or coconut flavoured simply switch out 25g of flour to either cocoa powder or coconut.
I don’t think this recipe has ever failed, as long as you mix all the ingredients well and ensure they are baked properly, you are good to go. There are no fancy ingredients needed and most of the items are in most people’s store cupboard. If you are after something a little different, how about this eggless lemon drizzle cake, it sounds amazing yet not too complicated too.
If you give these a go, let me know how you get on!
