What You Do:

1. Heat the oven to 160C and line a 12 hole muffin tin with cake cases. Combine the flour, baking powder and sugar in a large bowl.

2. In a separate bowl beat together the almond milk, peanut butter and nut oil until smooth. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour in the liquid. Stir gently until you have a smooth, thick mixture.

3. Spoon the mixture into the cake cases and bake for 20-25mins then set aside to cool.

4. While the cakes are cooling make the frosting. Beat together all the ingredients to make a stiff smooth frosting. Once the cakes are cool spread or pipe the frosting on top. If the frosting is too stiff, add an extra splash of almond milk.

Cook’s Tip:

  • Add a sprinkle of desiccated coconut or some vegan sprinkles to decorate the top.
