Vanilla Cake Pops

My friend recently got a cake pop maker as a gift. She wanted me to try it out for the first time. So, today decided to try my hand at making cake pops. I used one of the recipes from the manual though I had to halve the recipe as the original recipe made 4 dozen cake pops! I opted for vanilla cake pop as it is my little one's favorite. I did not have any frosting handy, but would definitely like to try it out again with some frosting. For this time, I just stuck to glazing it.

Preparation & Cooking: 30 minutes                Makes - 2 dozen


For the cake pops:
All Purpose Flour/Maida - ¾ cup
Baking Powder - ½ teaspoon
Salt - a pinch
Unsalted Butter - ¼ cup, softened
Sugar - ½ cup
Egg - 1
Vanilla Essence - 1 teaspoon
Milk - ¼ cup

For the glaze:
Unsalted Butter - ¼ cup, melted
Confectioner's Sugar - 1¼ cup, sifted
Vanilla Essence - 1 teaspoon
Mixed Fruit Essence  - 1 teaspoon (this was my addition, as I like the flavor, you could omit it)
Hot Water - 2½ tablespoons

For the cake pops:
  • Mix the flour, salt and baking powder and set it aside.
  • In another bowl, cream the sugar and butter until smooth and fluffy. 
  • Add in the vanilla essence and the egg and whisk until it blends smoothly.
  • Mix the dry ingredients and milk alternately till a smooth batter is formed.
  • Scoop in one tablespoon of batter into each slot of the cake pop maker and let it cook for 4-5 minutes. The cake pop is done if a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Remove the cake pops and cool them completely.

For the glaze:
  • Cream the melted butter and confectioner's sugar into a smooth texture. Add the essences and hot water. 
  • Adjust the hot water to attain required consistency for the glaze.
  • While the glaze is still warm dip the cake pops in them.

  • Roll the cake pops in sprinkles and set them aside to let the glaze set. Also, dip the sticks in the glaze and insert them into the cake pops.
