Here is a simple, straight-forward recipe for cake pops which can be made for less than the cost of a meal deal, at £2.95.

They're perfect for a tea party, or as a birthday gift. There are two parts to the recipe - baking a basic cake and then makinng the cake pops.

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

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 are no loose cake crumbs.

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. Using a toothpick, dip the cakes balls, one at a time into the melted chocolate until they are fully covered.

Note: Feel free to then dip them in sprinkles or drizzle them afterwards 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!
