Here you go!



INGREDIENT LIST

Cake pops

Salted Butter                              100g
Sugar                                         40g
Egg                                            2
Self-raising flour                         110g
Baking soda                               2g
Vanilla essence                           1/2 teaspoon

Dipping Chocolate

Chocolate buttons                      250g
Vegetable shortening                   4 teaspoon


Baking the cake

1. Whisk the softened butter and the sugar until you have a whitish cream.

2. Add the eggs one by one, leaving enough time between each for them to be fully incorporated in the mixture.

3. Add in vanilla essence.

4. Sift in the flour and baking soda. Mix until combined.

5. Place the bottom half of the mould (the one without holes). Scoop the batter into the holes until they’re full.

6. Gently secure the other half of the mould over the top.

7. Bake in the preheated oven at 180 Degree Celsius for about 15 minutes.

8. Cool the pops before removing them.


Melting chocolate

1. Place the chocolate buttons in a heat-proof bowl that fits snugly in a saucepan over a pot of lightly steaming water. The steam will slowly melt the chocolate. Suspend the bowl over the simmering water, but do not let the bottom of the bowl to touch the water. Contact with the water may cause the bowl overheated, burning the chocolate instead of melting it.

2. Melt the chocolate slowly over low heat. Stir with a metal spoon until melted.

3. When the chocolate is almost completely melted, remove from the heat.

4. If the chocolate is too thick, add in vegetable shortening or whipping cream and stir well until you get the runny texture. It helps the chocolate to stay glossy when it sets.


Coating and decorating

1. Remove the cake pops from the mould. Dip one end of the cake pop sticks into the melted chocolate and insert them into the cake pops. Allow them to set in the fridge for 5 minutes. See photo below.

2. Dip the cake pops into the melted chocolate and use a spoon to cover them all over and leave to dry in the mould.

3. Sprinkle with decorations and you are done!

  6. Hi, I'm trying out your recipe for my girl's birthday today. If i don't have vegetable shortening or whipping cream, can I use vegetable oil to thin out the chocolate?
