Vegan Vanilla Cupcakes

vegan cakes

It was my little boy's 1st birthday the other day and that means CAKE. My son has a dairy and egg allergy though which I initially thought meant no cake or rubbish cake, wrong! I found a rather wonderful vegan cake recipe on Jamie Oliver's website (here) . These are absolutely beautiful cup cakes. Incredibly moist and soft. My little boy and everyone else loved them.

Soya yoghurt, dairy free margarine, and oil are used instead of milk, eggs and butter. I swear you wouldn't be able to tell the difference .

Here's the ingredients

  • 300 g caster sugar
  • 150 ml sunflower oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 500 g dairy-free soya yoghurt
  • 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  • 350 g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • For the vegan vanilla icing

  • 200 g dairy-free soya spread, chilled
  • 660 g icing sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • You can find the full details of how to make them here .And a very special thank you to my mum who made them. She said the recipe was easy to follow.



    1. These look delicious!

      I can't believe he is a year old already. Where did the time go?

      I hope he had a wonderful day xx

      1. they really were! I was quite surprised at how nice they were.

        I know, it's absolutely flown by and all a bit of a blur. He was spoiled rotten and loved it, thanks! xxx
