Fairy cakes

Makes 12

125 g soft margarine or butter

125 g caster sugar

2 eggs, beaten

125 g self raising flour

Vanilla flavouring

Icing sugar to make into glacé icing, or butter icing

Glace cherry


Preheat the oven to 190° C / Gas 5.

Beat the margarine and sugar together with a wooden spoon until the mixture is pale and creamy and the sugar no longer feels gritty.

Sieve the flour into a bowl.

Beat the eggs and add to the mixture, adding some flour if the mixture shows signs of curdling.

Add the vanilla essence and then gently stir in the flour using a figure of eight if you wish.

Pile into cake cases and bake for 15-20 minutes until the cakes are well risen and golden.

Cool and decorate with glacé icing and a cherry.
