My New Cake Pop Maker!

I'm sure many people already have one of these handy little machines!  I've been toying with the idea of getting a Cake Pop Maker for quite some time now but the prices seemed alittle high and I wasn't sure if I would use it enough to justify spending too much!  Well - last week I saw that Home Bargains had one on their website for just £10.99 and it was a 12 hole one!!  So I thought at that price it would be silly not to grab one!  If you'd like one as well you can find it here

It also comes with 2 packs of different sized sticks, a cooling tray and a pronged tool to make lifting the cake pops out easy.

Today I tested it out with an easy donut recipe that I found on Gourmet Gadgetry.  It was very easy to use.  The recipe has a slight error though as they mention putting salt in but don't include it on the list of ingredients so I had to guess!!  Anyway - I put in half a teaspoon of salt and it was just right.

 Before using the machine, the instructions for it advised that you rub alittle vegetable oil on the cooking plates.  I decided to use some Wiltons Cake Release instead of oil - just a tiny bit.

I used a teaspoon of the dough mix for each and it took approx 5 mins to cook them nicely.  I used the pronged tool to check if they were cooked inside and then removed them from the machine and rolled them around in a castor sugar and cinnamon powder mix.

They do taste very nice whilst still warm but I cooled the rest and then put the next lot in to cook!

I want to try a savoury recipe next, maybe onion bhaji!  There is one on the Gourmet Gadgetry blog here.  If anyone has any other nice savoury pop recipes for these machines please share!!
