Flower-shaped lemon cake pops

Flower shaped cake pops, perfect for kids or as an Easter treat, soft and moist cake with a hint of lemon and crunchy poppy seeds.  You can decorate them with chocolate or icing, if you like- i just think they look adorable as they are!

Ingredients (makes about 18):

  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 30g soft, unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 tsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp yoghurt (I used peach flavoured)
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla paste or extract
  • 1/2 tbsp poppy seeds

Beat butter and sugar until pale and fluffy, then add an egg and mix well. Add all remaining ingredients and mix until just combined.

Pour into flower-shaped cake pop moulds and bake in a pre-heated oven at 180C for about 10 minutes. 

Take out the mould and leave to cool completely.

Melt white chocolate in a bain-marie or in a microwave.

Dip cake pop sticks in melted chocolate, then insert into each cake pop.  Leave in the fridge for about 10 minutes to set.
