Fate Fairy Cakes

Delicious and so quick and easy to prepare. This recipe can also be prepared and cooked as a tray bake cake. Use a tin measuring 26cms x 17cms x 3cms deep which is greased and lined with greaseproof paper. For fairy cakes, just place 12 paper cases into a patty tin. The cakes are made with pure fruit juice, the kind you get in a carton. Orange, Apple and Pineapple juice all work well. Just make sure it is unsweetened, pure fruit juice. I like to use Orange juice as it gives a lovely colour to the cakes.



INGREDIENTS

1 x 250g packet Fate Low Protein Cake Mix

65g soft margarine

125 mls pure orange juice, or other fruit juice





Preheat oven, Gas 5, 190°C 375°F

Place the Fate Cake Mix into a mixing bowl. Add the margarine and orange juice. Mix for 1 minute with a wire whisk. Leave to stand for 1 minute, then stir before dividing the mixture into the paper cases.

Bake for about 20 mins until risen and browned. Remove from the tin and place onto a wire rack to cool.

Decorate with Glacé icing, cherries or suitable sprinkles: Place about 75g icing sugar into a bowl and stir in about 4tsp of water or fruit juice. It should be thick enough to stick to the back of a spoon. Alter the consistency if necessary by adding more sugar or more liquid. Add a tiny amount of food colouring if you wish. Quickly spoon onto the tops of the cooled cakes. Add a piece of cherry or suitable sprinkles before the icing sets.
