Simple (soy, almond, rice)-milkless cakes

A friend of mine works in after school care. They make cakes/cupcakes for the kids' birthdays, but are no longer able to use many animal products (yay!) for what I assume are allergy reasons. Unfortunately they can't use soy milk etc either, which most vegan cakes call for.

I gave her this recipe, and although it's good, they're getting a bit tired of chocolate.


Copied from her LJ:
These are the ingredients we have - we aren't allowed buy more to supplement them.

Dry
self raising flour
plain Flour
castor sugar
icing sugar
cocoa
bicarb soda
dessicated coconut

Wet
vegetable oil
vanilla
pink, yellow and blue food colouring
golden syrup
canned fruit
vinegar (Unfortunately they don't supply this, but I figured it was a safe product to sneak in)

Fresh food (depending on availability)
apples
pears
bananas
oranges
pineapple
rockmelon
cucumber
carrot


In other after school care news, my boyfriend has also made the above mentioned chocolate cake, and various other vegan goodies for the kids he looks after. His work allows milk, eggs, (milky)margarine etc, but he's vegan so doesn't like to use those ingredients. I'm sure he'll also be appreciative of any non-chocolate cakes the kids can cook. Yay!
