How To Make Simple Cakepops

Here is a simple recipe on how to make yummy cake pops. My son loved making these, and they was so yummy i didn't even manage to get an picture of the inside. hehe


120g  butter, softened
150g caster sugar
3 tbsp of cocoa powder
2 eggs, at room temperature
180g self-raising flour
4 tbsp milk, at room temperature
Lolly sticks
Cadburys Chocolate
Betty Crocker Frosting
Sprinkles etc to decorate

How To Make Cake Pops.

Preheat oven to 180°C/Gas Mark 4. 

Cream the butter and sugar, add the eggs. Add half the flour and then half the milk and mix until fully combined. Repeat with the remaining flour and milk. Pop in a greased up tin and bake for 15-20 minutes on gas mark 4.

After the cake is cool, crumble the cake thoroughly in a large mixing bowl. You may want to remove the crusts of the cake with a kitchen knife first to avoid any lumps. 

Once you have crumbled the cake take your frosting, a heaped tablespoon at a time, and begin mixing it in light sticky texture. 

Wrap the mixture in cling film and chill for at least 60 minutes. The mixture should be firm. Take out the mixture and roll little balls with your hands. ( Don't do them to big as we made that mistake last time and they fell of the stick) Pop in lolly sticks and re fridge until they are firm.

Melt you chocolate them dip the pops in covering all the pop up to the stick so it secures it. Place on a tray lined with greaseproof paper.

Decorate with anything you like, this is what we used.
