Chocolate Cake Pops :)

Andy’s (Andaleeb Wajid) on board! Yay! She’s a great spontaneous cook, a super baker, a writer (yes, a published writer! Her published novel is titled Kite Strings), and a cool mom.  Andy also blogs at  www.wellandtrulycooked.wordpress.com, so do check her recipes out there.

So glad to have her on board scatterthebatter! For STB, presenting Andy’s Chocolate Cake Pops recipe. It has me adrool!!

I’ve borrowed the recipes from a couple of websites and came up with something on my own, so I don’t know who I should give credit to. Do check out www.bakerella.com for some amazing cake pop ideas though. I am not that inventive or creative so I stuck with boring little rounds of chocolate cake dipped in melted chocolate.

One cake yields around 60 cake pops.

Chocolate cake

This is my standard chocolate cake recipe, although you can make it the way you usually do also.

  • 200 gms butter
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar, (powdering it is optional)
  • 1 3/4 cup maida (all purpose flour)
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/2 cup curdled milk ( 1/2 cup milk with a tsp of lemon juice, let it stand for sometime until milk curdles)

Beat the butter and sugar until fluffy.

Add eggs one at a time and then the vanilla essence.

Sieve maida with baking powder and fold it into batter gently.

Mix the curdled milk but don’t over beat. Mix, until just incorporated. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees C for about half an hour.

Let the cake cool and then in a huge bowl, crumble it all up. This is the fun part because your cake doesnt have to look perfect or emerge from the pan perfectly either. 😀

Chocolate frosting

Now this is what I keep forgetting each and every time. I mean, I simply forget what kind of frosting I make and I improvise each time. So, doing this from memory now. I make a terrible absentminded cook <sigh>.

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 1/2 cup milk

Mix everything and cook for a minute. Beat well until it is glossy.

To assemble cake pops

Pour the chocolate frosting over the crumbled cake and knead it like dough. Make small balls out of it and line it on parchment paper. Freeze for half an hour.

Melt chocolate in the microwave or a double boiler. Dip each ball into the melted chocolate and let it rest on the paper. The chocolate hardens slowly and you can lift each ball off the paper easily enough.

    :-)) I’m glad these were such a hit…I made them the last time for my sister’s engagement and we suddenly decided why should we send all 64? So we halved the number and packed off one tray to send. The remaining, everyone fought over it like mad! 😀
