The recipe I am showing you is the original fairy cake recipe. The ingredients needed are as followed…
- 100g self raising flour
- 100g unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
- 100g caster sugar
- 2 eggs
- Vanilla essence (optional)
I have chosen this recipe to talk about as it is easy to remember because you only need a few ingredients. The recipe can also be tweaked and other ingredients can be added to your taste.
Here are a few example of different ingredients that can be added:
A healthy option would be the common blueberry as it adds a pop of colour and some vitamin C. Vitamin C is well know to support the immune system.
Grated Lemon Zest.
Lemon zest could be added to make the cakes have a fresher, lighter taste for those who do not like too much sugar.
Chocolate chips added to your buns is great for those who have a sweet tooth.
I enjoy using this recipe to bake with my mum as it is easy to do as my mum is rubbish at baking!
