Dairy Free Vanilla Cake in the FunPod
Fleur turned one in January and I wanted to make the traditional birthday cake for her but of course I needed it to be dairy free, egg free and soy free to suit her allergies. After many attempts I finally created a recipe that was delicious. I wanted to have a bit of colour and fun so this is what I came up with.
Making cakes are fun, kids love getting involved and seeing the process of how the cake is made. Being up on the bench in the Little Helper FunPod allows them to be interactive and help you and learn life skills. Let them lick the beaters afterwards, make some mess and they will love you for it. I would always stand in the kitchen and help Mum cook cakes and sweets. I would always be allowed to lick the beaters at the end and I would be so excited.

Oven Temperature 162 degrees fan forced oven
2 and 2/3 cups self-raising flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup Nuttelex Original margarine spread (Vegan)
2 cups sugar
1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla essence
4 eggs in egg-replacer powder (or 4 eggs for non-vegan)
1 cup unsweetened Almond milk
1/2 cup of sprinkles (hundred and thousands)
Grease two 8 inch round cake tins with Nuttelex Original spread, making sure you get all the sides. Then cut some baking paper to line the bottoms of each pan.
Into an electric mixer add Nuttelex, sugar and vanilla and beat on high until creamy and smooth.
Next double sift the flour and baking soda and salt (This means put the flour twice through the sifters) then place into the creamy mixture.
Next mix the egg-replacer together in a little ramekin until smooth (make sure there are no lumps) then add to the bowl.
Add the almond milk and mix on low setting until all combined.
Take out the beaters and add the cake mixture evenly to the two tins.
Next add your sprinkles to both tins and swirls them around with a knife so they don’t run.
Then place cakes in the oven for 50 minutes.
Once cooked remove and test with a wooden skewer, (if comes out clean-no sticky parts) then it’s cooked. Allow to cool for 10 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack until completely cooled for icing.
