Cake Sale Cake Pop Recipe.
Makes around 20 Cake Pops
100g caster sugar
100 all purpose flour (you can use raising flour and remove the baking powder)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 large egg
Vanilla essence or 1 teaspoon of vanila sugar
Cream the butter until soft and then add the sugar and vanilla sugar/essence and beat until light and creamy. Beat in the egg. Mix in the baking powder, salt and flour, then blend half of the flour into the sugar/flour mixture. Add the milk and mix well, then add the rest of the flour mixture and combine.
Heat up your cake pop maker (you can also buy silicon trays) and insert one tablespoon into each cake pop hole/well. In the cake pop maker I cook for mine for 5 minutes, though you may need to check timings if using a mould in the oven.
I decorated mine, by melting a tub of fondant icing in the microwave for 15 seconds and then dipping the cake pops into it. I topped each one with a smartie. I'm pleased to report they proved very popular with the little ones, and were sold out in a flash.
