Fairy cakes? I haven’t made or seen them in ages! Everything recently has been about the cupcake and its buttercream icing. I wanted to relive my childhood and bring fairycakes back!
The rustling of the smaller cases as you try and take them apart to set in the muffin tray. That used to be my job with my Mum, when she baked. Now my little one has taken over the tradition. Though he is a bit more vocal than me at the age of three. Especially as he loves baking and cooking. He sat on the kitchen work top and was telling me I had to measure out 100g of sugar and flour! Seriously it’s my recipe that I’m just putting together and how did he figure out the measurements?!
He then helped put the raspberries in each case and I dolloped over the sweet batter before baking. The result was a soft sponge fairy cake with fresh raspberries that had turned gooey and had melted to form a lovely tart sensation at the bottom of the cake
I have a few left, so I’m about to make myself a cup of masala chai and sit down for my fairycake!
Have a fruitful day! Much love and light, D x
100g softened butter/low fat butter spread
100g granulated sugar
2 free range eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
100g self raising flour
2 tbsp milk
Melted chocolate to drizzle
• Preheat the oven at 180°c/350°f, line a 12 hole muffin pan with fairy cake paper cases
• Cream the butter and sugar in a large bowl or food processor. Add the eggs and beat well.
• Stir in the vanilla extract and milk, fold in the flour. The batter should be drop like in consistency
• Put 3 raspberries in each cake case and then fill each case up with batter
• Place in the oven for 10-15 minutes until golden brown or when poked a skewer comes out clean
• Cool the cakes in the muffin pan and then drizzle over with a little melted chocolate
Hope to make these in the summer!
That’s great! I was lucky to get my hands on some! 🙂

I’ve never heard of ‘fairy cakes’ – these look so light and delicious!! I know my grandchildren would enjoy making & eating these!!
I wasn’t able to get any photos of this when I tried to Pin It… and I tried 2x. Bummer!
Yum, Dimple!! Just Yum!! Now…I have to ask… fairy cakes… what is the difference between a fairy cake and a cupcake? xx
Fairy cakes are smaller 🙂 xx
Oh that is a beautiful thing! That just means I can eat more than one!! 🙂 Love it!! I love the raspberry and the chocolate with the yellow cake.. I’d have to say it would be my favorite combination!! ❤
Thank you Darling…and exactly…I have to make so many more of these. Hope you’re having a gorgeous day xx
Such a beautiful story about baking with your little one!
I have the fondest memories of baking with my Mum and Dad. My sister and I would make batches and batches of fairy cakes when we were younger. Always with pink icing, because obviously pink icing tastes the best 🙂
Love the idea of the molten raspberries at the bottom of the cakes – delicious!
What a great idea and recipe, I only knew cupcakes until now, pinned!
Awesome! Thank you Lily x
I’ve never heard of fairy cakes, but now I want to have some. These look delicious!
Your son sounds like a natural in the kitchen! What a cutie pie! And your fairy cakes look so yummy. I haven’t made fairy cakes in a long while either. You’ve inspired me to put them on my short list! 🙂
Thank you Patty…Well he does say he wants to be a chef! Yay!..enjoy the fairycakes xx
He is one lucky boy to have such a great mentor! 😀
