We had a bake sale at work last week and I made some gluten and dairy free vanilla frosted cupcakes, peanut butter chocolate chip fudge and raspberry brownies so over the next few weeks I’ll upload the recipes for them. I’ve used my basic cupcake recipe and vanilla frosting to make a simple but tasty little treat.




For the cupcakes:

  • 150g dairy free spread
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 150g self raising gluten free flour

For the frosting:

  • 125g dairy free spread
  • 250g icing sugar
  • rice paper flowers or your choice of decoration


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 oC
  2. Beat together the caster sugar and the dairy free spread until light and fluffy
  3. Add the three eggs individually, beating well between each addition
  4. Add in the flour
  5. Mix until well combined
  6. Split the mixture between 8 muffin moulds lined with paper cases
  7. Bake in the centre of the oven for 20 minutes
  8. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before frosting
  9. Make the frosting by beating together the dairy free spread and icing sugar
  10. Pipe onto the cupcakes and top with two rice paper flowers
