Made these with eggs and vegan butter and subbed maple syrup for sugar and left out the milk. Delicious but the wet ingredients curdled. I definitely need to work out how to make cakes when you can't cream the sugar and butter! Very sweet though, doubt I'll bother icing them.

These cakes are delicious but sadly all the choc chips dropped to the bottom & stuck to the cake cases!
