Free from cupcakes

My little girl had to take cakes in to school to sell for charity week. She said she has a few friends who are dairy free or vegan and wanted to make cakes they could buy as they were getting left out! We made a batch of these vegan and gluten free cupcakes to take in and they were a huge hit!


  • 300ml dairy free milk (we used Koko milk)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 325g gluten free self raising flour
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 150g dairy free margarine (we used vitalite)
  • 1 tsp gluten free baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
  2. Mix the milk and lemon juice together and leave to stand for a few minutes.
  3. Stir in the flour, sugar, baking powder and margarine.
  4. Mix well until smooth.
  5. Spoon the mixture into cake cases and bake for approx 20 mins until golden on the top, we added a little sprinkle of caster sugar on the top and then popped them back in the oven for a couple of minutes to give a little crunchy, sweet top.
