Cream Cakes Recipe

Cream Cakes recipe

I came across a very interesting cream cakes recipe on timetocookonline blog of some cakes that used double cream instead of butter and I just had to try them out.

The cakes looked a bit too small so I decided to double the recipe so that I could bake muffins.  The recipe is very simple to make.  Double cream has a high fat content and if you shake double cream in a closed jar it turns to butter so the double cream substitute makes a lot of sense.


  • 300g caster sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 250ml double  cream
  • 300g self raising flour


  •  Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • Butter and flour your muffin trays. I bake 16 muffins in total.
  • Crack the eggs into a bowl and add the sugar. Beat with a balloon whisk (or by hand or stand mixer) until the eggs are frothy and the sugar dissolved – about 5 minutes.
  • Add the cream and whisk.
  • Add the flour and mix.
  • Spoon the mixture into your muffin trays and bake.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown on top and a cake tester comes out clean.
  • Remove from the tray and allow to cool completely.

Serve and Enjoy
