12 gluten + lactose free cupcakes (no egg recipe) / Serves: 8 / Nutritional info: Wheat and lactose free.


  • 100g gluten free self raising four
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder (gluten free)
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 + 1/2 tsp vanilla extract/flavouring
  • 100ml lactose free milk (or milk alternative)

2. Place 8-12 cupcake cases into the hollows of a muffin tray (or alternatively on a baking tray)

3. Measure out your flour, caster sugar, and baking powder and mix together.

4. In another bowl or jug, measure out your milk (or alternative) and sunflower oil, then add your lemon juice and vanilla. Stir the liquids together.

5. Carefully tip the liquid mix into your dry ingredients, and whisk quickly until it's combined and there's no big lumps.

6. Quickly distribute the mix evenly into your cake cases (approx 2tsp per case)

7. Place the tray of cupcakes in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes ( when cooked an inserted skewer should come out clean)

8. Leave to cool on a cooling rack for approx 5-10 minutes

9. Decorate your cupcakes to your taste!

(I created vanilla butter icing, and added sprinkles and edible paper wafer designs)
