Coffee is one of my favourite ingredients to add to a cake and you can find the recipe for both my Dairy Free Vanilla Latte Cake and Vegan Mocha Cakes.  The last few days in France have been lovely, no internet, no work and no TV so I have actually had time to write a few blog posts and try out some new recipes.  You can read about our adventures in France as part of The Peachick Invasion series here.


This recipe makes 6 large cupcakes (muffin tray) and uses Betty Crocker buttercream which has no egg, soya or milk ingredients but does carry a warning that it may contain traces of milk.  For a dairy free alternative just add 1tsp of instant coffee granules to your favourite buttercream recipe using a dairy free spread!  Both sets of decoration are listed as suitable for dairy&egg free diets on the Waitrose website!

    • Thank you! Me too I do love coffee cakes – planning on making myself somemore for Mother’s Day with chopped walnuts in! x

  • These are lovely! They are beautiful & sound tasty, I have pinned this to make sure & give them a try. Thank you for joining the link-up, Have a Great Week!! 🙂

    • They really do! A lot of them are ok for the Peachicks too which others I have found in other shops/online aren’t!

  • These sound and look so tasty! I have a few friends who would really appreciate this recipe so thank you very much for sharing. #HowToSunday

    • Thank you, they are really good, although the cakes themselves are so easy to make and take about 5mins to get in the oven!

  • These Cupcakes are just too pretty! I love the fact that they’re vegan and I bet the coffee flavor is super yum!
    Pinning and Making these! Love it! 🙂

    • Thank you, I’ve always baked dairy free but was really worried about the egg free bit when Elodie arrived with such a severe egg allergy! Turns out that you actually don’t need any of those chemical egg replacers golden syrup and/or chia seeds do a great job! And the texture of these are really good – you really can’t tell they are vegan!

  • These look so yum! What a beautiful design & a tasty recipe. Definitely perfect for mother’s day – I’d love if my family made me these! Thanks so much for linking up with #bloggerclubuk x

  • These are gorgeous! Perfect for Mother’s day! Love the decorations you have used. Will have to check out the range next time I’m in Waitrose 🙂 Eb x

    • Thank you! I do like the decorations from Waitrose some of them are really pretty! I especially like the allergy information they list on their website against everything!

  • These look amazing! I love how pretty they are, perfect for a birthday gift. I need to go back to dairy and egg free baking, we have started having way too much dairy again and I really do think it affects my eldest. Thanks so much for sharing on #HowtoSunday 🙂 x

    • Thank you, they went down pretty well, although I don’t know how much of a good thing it is that the Peachicks are so fond of coffee flavours! Trouble is when they can start having dairy its so easy to give them too much and not even notice. Hope going dairy free again helps your eldest! x
