Classic Vanilla Fairy Cakes Recipe🧁

These vanilla fairy cakes are a lovely treat with a nice cup of tea. This is an easy recipe by Supervalu to follow.

ingredients

  • 2 large fresh eggs
  • 120g Self-Raising flour
  • 4oz Butter
  • 225g Icing sugar
  • 120g Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla essence
  • 1 tsp Water
  • Sweets or Hundreds and Thousands

method

  • Preheat your oven to 180°C, gas mark 4. Prepare your baking tray. If you are using a deep fill muffin tin, you will need 8 muffin liners. Or, if you are using a standard fairy cake size tin you will need 12 standard sized liners.
  • Into a large mixing bowl place your eggs, granulated sugar, softened butter, self raising flour and vanilla essence.
  • Using the whisk attachment of your blender or mixer, blend all the ingredients together. Remember to start on a low speed so that the flour can become incorporated into the cake batter without being sprayed out of the bowl.
  • Mix the cake batter just until it looks smooth and there are no lumps.
  • Divide the cake batter among the cake liners. Place the tray into the oven in a central shelf and bake for 15 minutes.
  • Check to see if the cakes are cooked by pressing gently on the centre of the cakes. If they spring back up easily, then remove from the oven and place on a cooling tray. If they need some more time, place back in the oven and check after a further 2 minutes.
  • Once cooled, mix your icing sugar with the water until it forms a smooth thick paste. Transfer a small blob of icing onto each cake and use a knife to spread the icing around.
  • Decorate as required with sweets while the icing is still wet to ensure the sweets stick.
