I/we have to make fairy cakes for school next week, they can be decorated anyway you like and they will be judged on decoration, prizes given and then the cakes sold off for charity.
They have given all the kids a metal baking tray each to keep which is little kids sized, holds 6 and labeled Flora.
Thing is I don't want egg as I know he's gonna make a mess and dont want him spreading raw egg round the kitchen, so I am looking for egg free fairy cake recipes us two idiots can make with ease, plain recipes as we have white icing sugar, chocolate chips and jelly fruit segments already (will buy more stuff for toppings) so I think having something like a chocolate flavoured base would be a bit much with all the sugar shapes he's going to pile on top.
I have found two egg free cake recipes that look simple I just wondered if anyones made anything similar so can advise which would be best.
Number 1 is the hairy bikers no egg sponge cake mix obviously this is intended for a jam sponge cake but I don't see why it wouldn't make good fairy cakes too.
175g/6oz plain flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp golden syrup
150ml/¼ pint milk
2-3 tbsp jam
Number 2 is a egg free fairy cake mix
• 225g (8 oz) self raising flour
• 2 tsp baking powder
• 175g (6oz) caster sugar
• 6 tbsp sunflour oil
• 250ml (9 fl oz) water
• 1 tsp vanilla extract
