Here is a simple, straight-forward recipe for Cake Pops (also known as Pop cakes or Cake balls), which can be made for less than the cost of a meal deal at £2.95. They perfect for a tea party, or as a birthday gift. There are two parts to the recipe. Initially a basic cake will need to be made, from which the Cake pops will be created.

120 g Butter
120 g Sugar
120 g Self-raising Flour
2 Eggs
120 g Cream Cheese
2 x 100 g Milk Chocolate Bars
1 x 100 g White Chocolate Bar

Recipe makes approx. 30 to 36 small Cake pops


1. Mix together the butter and sugar together with a wooden spoon, until they become creamy.

2. Add one egg at a time to the mixture until it becomes gooey (it may have an unpleasant appearance, but you are on the right path!).

3. Next sift the self-raising flour in two identical batches, and fold gently until the mixture thickens into a batter.

4. Pour the batter into a pre-prepared baking tin and bake in the oven, at gas mark 4 for 30 to 40 minutes.

5. Once the cake has cooled down, use a food processor, a whisk or a spoon to create cake crumbs.

6. Then add the cream cheese to the crumbs and mix until there is a consistency throughout.

7. Roll small amounts of the crumbs into small balls and place on a baking tray. Leave this in the fridge for an hour (or the freezer for 25 minutes).

8. Melt the milk chocolate in a medium bowl, over a saucepan and using a toothpick, dip the cakes balls, one at a time in the melted chocolate, until they are fully covered.

Note: Feel free to then dip them in sprinkles or drizzle them with white chocolate for variety.

9. Once all the cake pops have been covered in chocolate, leave on a tray in the fridge for an hour (or the freezer for 25 minutes).

10. Sit back and enjoy!
