...wheat free, dairy free, egg free, soy free banana raisin cupcakes

The Wee Man has a birthday party to attend today so yesterday we spent the afternoon making cupcakes for him.  It's always nerve wracking when the Wee Man attends parties, all that food and latex balloons means a very high chance of allergic reactions.  I always make him food for the party and all the parents are always very understanding and have always asked if there are any precautions they should take.  So far so good.  He did have a wheeze when he left the last party he attended but it was only minor.

Anyway, back to the cupcakes.  The Wee Man always helps in the making of these, which tells you how simple they are to make.  He's become a real dab hand at measuring and mixing.

2oz Doves Farm Self Raising Flour
2oz Pure Sunflower spread
2oz Caster sugar
Orgran No Egg (Egg Replacer)
1 ripe banana
Handful raisins

Cream the sugar and Pure Sunflower spread.  To make really fluffy cupcakes that rise well, mix, mix and mix some more.  You can't mix too much.

Whisk 1tsp of Orgran No Egg with 2 tbsp of watter until the mixture is frothy. 

Slowly add the No Egg to the creamed sugar and spread until you have a runny consistency.

Mash the banana and add to the mixture.  At this stage you can add the raisins but these are optional.  You could also add a handful of chocolate chips as a special treat.  Of course check the chocolate is suitable for your diet.

Add the flour and give the whole mixture a good old  mix until all is well combined.

Spoon into 6 cupcake cases and bake in a preheated 220C oven for 12 mins.
They should be well risen and golden brown.
Decorate as desired.

A simple child friendly recipe that makes cakes just like the other kids have.
