Vegan Fairy Cakes – With Windmills!

Vegan Fairy Cakes

Vegan Fairy Cakes, for my daughter who celebrated her Birthday today……& why not?!

Special request: She wanted windmills on top!

I’ve never made Vegan cakes of any description before, so this was my first attempt. Switching out the usual eggs & butter for soya yoghurt & organic vegetable oil. These little fluffy bites of loveliness, made a big impression on both myself & my daughter. Easy to make, didn’t miss the butter, and was impressed with the light crumbly texture 0f these sweet little treats!

This batch makes around 14 – 16 fairy cakes. You could also make bigger cupcakes, this batch size would make between 6-8 (don’t forget to bake them a little longer if you make cupcakes!)
