These are two of my favorite cookbooks
Sue Dengates "The Failsafe Cookbook"
Basic Plain Cake
250g self-raising flour or gluten free flour (I use Orgran or the new Aldi Has No.. brand)
1/4 tsp salt
125g failsafe butter or nuttelex
125g caster sugar
2 eggs, well beaten or egg replacer
1/2 cup of milk or rice or soy milk
1/4 tsp vanilla
Grease the cake tin. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Sift flour and salt. Add beaten eggs or egg replacer follow instructions on packet. Add flour and salt alternately with milk and vanilla. Put in tin and bake for 40-45 mins. Ice with white icing.
For cup cakes. Bake for 12-15 mins
80g caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup soy-free gluten free plain flour
1/2 cup soy-free gluten free self-raising flour
Preheat the oven to 170 degrees. Line the baking tray with paper.
Beat the nuttelex, sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer for 1-2 mins. Sift the flour into the mix and form a smooth dough.
Shape the mix into balls and press down with a fork. Bake for 12-15 mins. Cool on a wire rack.
