Ingredients

200g Juvela Gluten Free White Mix
1 tsp baking powder*
200g caster sugar
200g butter or 70% fat baking margarine
4 medium eggs, lightly beaten

Method

  1. Before you start, pre-heat the oven to 180°C/160°C Fan/350°F/Gas Mark 4 and lightly grease and base line 2x20cm (8inch) sandwich tins. For fairy buns, place 15-20 paper cake cases in tartlet tins.
  2. Place all the ingredients into a large bowl and beat together until light and fluffy. Divide the mixture between sandwich tins or cake cases and bake in a pre-heated oven - for sandwich cakes, 20-25 minutes; for fairy buns, 10-15 minutes.
  3. Once the cakes have cooled, they can be filled with jam and buttercream.
  4. To make this into a chocolate sponge, replace 50g (2oz) Mix with 50g (2oz) cocoa* or add 50g (2oz) melted chocolate*
