I was going to make the children some fairy cakes but I wanted to make them a little different so I decided to try using some golden syrup and brown sugar in the recipe. It actually turned out pretty well. I think this recipe would work really well as a small loaf or as a tray bake as well.


100g of Demerara Sugar

200g Margarine (softened)

2 eggs

2-3 tablespoons of golden syrup (personal choice on how sweet you like cakes)

200g Self Raising Flour

Preheat oven to gas mark 3, 170 C



  • Add the margarine & sugar to a bowl and cream until smooth.
  • Next add the eggs and golden syrup into a bowl and whisk until combined
  • Add the egg and golden syrup into the margarine & sugar mixture
  • Fold the flour into the other ingredients and mix until you get a smooth consistency
  • Place into the cake cases or tin and sprinkle a little more sugar over the top
  • Place it in the oven for around 25-30 minutes until golden brown and a skewer placed into the center comes out clean
