Dairy-free Fairy Cakes | 4 Ingredient Sponge Cake

These dairy-free fairy cakes are quick and easy to make and are only made up of 4 ingredients.

Fairy cakes are flat-topped cakes, usually with icing on top. I decided not to ice my cakes this time because sometimes I prefer just plain Victoria sponge fairy cakes.

This recipe only has 4 ingredients – and only 3 if you use self-raising flour – making this is one of the easiest cake mixes you will make! What’s more, this recipe is made with dairy-free vegetable butter, can be made gluten-free and as always, is nut-free.

These dairy-free Fairy cakes will not disappoint and you can be eating these fresh from the oven in less than half an hour.
