GF Quick Light & Fuffy Fairy Cakes

GF Coco cakeThese fairy cakes are AMAZING if I do say so myself, so simple and from start to finish it took around 45 mins (10m prep, 10m cooking, 15 cooling& decorating). I made these for a friends birthday and no one even realised they were GF until I said afterwards.




  • 150g (2/3 cup) Margirine
  • 150g (3/4 cup) Golden Caster Sugar
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 150g (1 Cup) GF Self Raising Flour (I use Doves)
  • 1 tsp GF Baking powder
  • 1/4 cup almond milk (use a bit more milk if making chocolate version)
  • 1/2 cup GF coco powder (Optional)


  • 50g (1/3 cup) Margarine
  • 1 cup coco powder
  • 100g (1 cup) icing sugar
  • 1 tbs golden syrup
  • Splash of almond milk to get right consistency

InstructionsGF Choco Cake

  1. Pre heat oven to 180°C
  2. Mix sugar & Marg to get a nice fluffy consistency
  3. Mix in the egg & vanilla
  4. Fold in the flour, baking powder & coco powder
  5. Stir in the milk until you get a thick liquid consistency
  6. Spoon around a tbs into fairy cake cases (should make around 15)
  7. Pop in the oven for 10-15 minutes in a pre-heated oven. You will know they are done when they feel nice and spongy a if you poke with a skewer (or fork) and it comes out clear.

Whilst the cakes cool start on the icing:

  1. Mix Marg, icing sugar, syrup & coco powder – this will create an almost dough texture.
  2. Then slowly splash by splash and the milk to until you get a very very thick liquid ( so hard peaks form)
  3. Once the cakes are cool to touch, use a small spatula to coat the top of the cakes with the icing.
