Set oven to 180 celsius.

Line, grease and flour two cake tins (I used 20 cm)

Sift 400g self-raising flour, 1 1/4 tsp bicarb of soda and 250g of caster sugar into one bowl.

Whisk together 115ml rapeseed oil (or flavourless oil of your choice), 400ml dairy-free milk, 3 tbsp of golden syrup and 2 tsp of vanilla extract in a small bowl.

Pour the liquid into the dry mixture and whisk for about 2 minutes, until think and creamy and no lumps.

Share the mixture evenly between the two tins and bake for 35 - 40 minutes until risen and a skewer comes out clean.

Leave to cool for a little while before removing to a wire rack to completely cool.

Once cool, add the filling and decorations of your choice.  Great for a kids birthday cake.
