I made some fairy cakes last night, like you do. Actually it was finding several boxes of eggs in the fridge that were slowly reaching their expiry date that prompted the mad evening bake-off!
Also Mr H was working late, really late, and the cats were investigating the night in the garden and there was nothing on telly.
I love baking though and Mr H loves eating cakes so it works well!
This is Nigella's recipe for Fairy Cakes. It's very easy and takes literally minutes to make the mix.
Unfortunately at this new house we have a rather rubbish oven and I have to turn the tins round to get an even bake... so much for fan assisted!
