Dairy Free Sponge Cake Recipe

As you probably know, Mia my eldest daughter is lactose intolerance. So since then i cancelled her cake order for her 4th birthday in December. I was looking around for anyone who may do lactose free cakes and i couldn't find anyone so in the end i decided i will make the cake myself. So i researched on the internet loads of different ingredients and i chose one and unbelievably it turned out much better than i thought!

Self Raising Flour
Baking Powder
Caster Sugar
Dairy Free Spread (I used Vitalite)

I never measure, so these numbers and grams never mean a thing too me when i'm baking cakes! But a rough estimate is (in my way)

A full sieve of flour
table spoon of baking powder (or less)
3 Eggs
3 big table spoons of spread.
Roughly 4-5 table spoons of caster sugar.

Other wise if you measure then the recipe i've got is 
170g flour
170g caster sugar
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
3 eggs
100g spread

Pre-heat oven temperature of 180 degrees.
Mix Butter and Caster Sugar together until soft.
Add the beaten eggs bit by bit with the flour (sieve it) and baking powder.
Mix/Whisk all together.
Then just mix everything for a few minutes.
Pour it in cupcake tin or cake tin!

I used a 20" cake tray. 
I did two cakes then put the filling in between, which was Jam!

*TIP - Use Silicon trays, they are FAB!  

You could always do this as a Dairy cake too! Just swap the dairy free butter with the normal butter.


  1. I always thought baking was meant to be an exact science! I can't believe you get away with guessing! That's pretty impressive!

    1. I have had good luck all week ha ha! Dont know how this turned out good like it has done actually. NEVER done a successful cake before!
